I'm kinda feeling relaxed with your favorable reply,
( well, it seems to me.. *grin* )
I was just afraid it might have become meaningless flame......
We better keep staying cool! ;-)

Hmm I can understand what you feel, but I believe Ted shouldn't be blamed for that.
I know he is not an absolute specialist of computer science, but on the other hand,
he can provide many exciting visions which ordinary technical people couldn't proide
at all. ( but I'm sure you guys know those stuffs very much...... )
So, I think what we should do on the current stage is just acknowledging
"the protocol design & idea design is different", and is it time to
re-define the entire protocol from scratch?
I don't think it's too late. Also might be better if we could map the software design using UML.
And I hope this discussion will give Ted some new & clear improvement for his
software design paradigm.
But he is stubborn, I like that, though.....;-)
I think it's definetely necessary to act as such, I admit current protocol has
( ex. no protocol/content handler, can't handle multiple primedia stream.....etc )
Now that I've got familiar with HTTP protocol well, ( not at the time, around 2 years ago
when I was striving to create the osmic software ) I can see HTTP is a very reasonable
, simple and extendable protocol.
But Ted's proposed system would bring something which current HTTP design can't
provide at all. That's the point, as you all know.
And also I recognize, as we're going into the core part of osmic (or xanadu network system),
the more we can see contradictions, and weak points of them..........but I still believe lots
of treasure are sleeping in those paradigm.
So it might be very productive, powerful approach to make it very clear
( like being a document or list ) what kind of things
are good/bad. It seems to me Ted hasn't been paying much attention for bad points
of this system. He might have been behaving so as not to admit deficient points, as
I said he is stubborn. ( again, I love that personality. )
Please just make sure he's continuing & striving to provide new paradigm,
that's the fact, no doubt.
[ And speaking about money-payment, I know it's a serious problem. Currently
I'm still only a student, so I don't expect to get paid from him..... but you're
different. Why don't you define a concrete contract specification about developing
your software, Ted ? I believe being good at stable business transaction is important
process to make the project most successful. ]

The person which does something interesting is supporse to be a unique guy.
I love "Think & Act Different".
Wow there're so many suggestions & opinions!
