Subject Re: [FalconJx] New JavaScript runtime format prototype
Date Sat, 22 Dec 2012 11:24:28 GMT

This is funny, it took me less then 2 weeks to rewrite the cross  
compiler for alternate output formats and we are talking about not  

A team is only as strong as it's weakest link. That link is not going  
to be me. I have a feeling Daniel this will get ironed out. Once Erik,  
Alex and Frank get this figured out, there will be something next to  
figure out, big deal.

By all means man keep working on your project. See a scientist always  
invents meaningful things on their own time, the masses always follow  
an "intact" idea. I see the chances of Flex eventually competing in  
the HTML5/JS sector as above 50%, thus my involvement in this project.

Don't take life to seriously, it will eat you apart.
