This is the personal web site of Chris Petersen from Melbourne Australia. Here you will find information about me, things I am interested in, and links to other sites and my friends. You can get in contact with me by sending me e-mail or interacting with my blog.

Finally I state how HTML 5 sucks
Monday 30th of May 2016 01:28:00 PM
For it's entire life I haven't been fond of HTML 5 standard, I'm now willing to describe why:

1. To quote Sigourney Weaver, you piss on XML without even calling it rain. Your eleventh hour introduction of an XML compatible standard and the introduction of the entire RDF standard confirms this. Your official standard recommends that people continue to piss on XML.
2. Your doctype confirms that you piss on all other standards of HTML, both past and future. It is perfectly obvious that because of this, at some point in the future, HTML 5 will be declared as "bad".
3. You failed. Your intention of standardizing web video formats and all the other things you intended to do didn't actually happen.
4. You failed. What you were supposed to improve the web, it didn't happen. Simply obvious things like multi-hyperlinks simply weren't proposed.
5. You renamed a bunch of shit for the sake of it, good job.
6. The simple job of shoving something in the bottom right corner of a computer screen, possible using "tables"in HTML 3.2, isn't possible in HTML 5 and requires an ever evolving standard, CSS, that has has never officially solved this previously solved basic problem. In the pre-internet days, I would physically punch a computer if this was ever an issue.
7. The advocation for things like CSS and Javascript shows that no-one ever intended for the HTML5 standard to be complete and fully functional / useful.
8. Thank you for ignoring things like like DOM3, innovation can be very hard. Let's wait another 50 years to standardize things that people do every day, like "drag on drop".
9. Nice to see you trying to push new technology. I have to download something called "icemonkey" to see my 10+ year old attempts at RDF actually work.
10. Actually forget innovation. Previously working subsets of standards like RDF's FOAF are hard to maintain, let's just give up.

To be fair to myself it's hard to justify documenting Ada, however:

IFNULL(ROUND(GLength(LineStringFromWKB(LineString(l.location, lp.location)))*110400), 0) AS diff_distance

Thank you Chris. The most common form of 110400 is an entire Briggs and Stratton engine range. I don't think so.
