Hi.
I've noticed several ranchers are sporting trendy, personalized Mapraputa Is signature lines.
I was wondering, what do you have to get one of your own? Does it involve saving cereal box tops or collecting scratch 'n stiff N'sync postacards? Can I make just 3 easy payments?
Are operators standing by?
I'm just curious.

To begin with, what everybody calls "Mapraputa" (full name Mapraputa 1.7.X) is a piece of software, developed by joint efforts by former Soviets and Oregon's anarchists. Role of Jim Yingst in this process isn't completely clear; being asked a direct question he gives evasive or contradictory answers. One fact, though, is indubitable - that Jim is now responsible for maintenance tasks on Mapraputa 1.7.X. From what I read in documentation, Mapraputa 1.7.X is highly configurable and there wouldn't be a problem with triggering the behavior you need - there used to be a set of run-time options... As always, political forces intruded. Lately, Michael Ernest attempted to get control on Mapraputa 1.7.X. To prevent him from fulfilling his evil plan Jim upgraded Mapraputa 1.7.X to Mapraputa 1.8.X. The latest version uses deployment descriptors written in XML, so Michael Ernest, who earlier imprudently admitted his ignorance on XML, was effectively cut off from any possibility to influence Mapraputa's behavior. Basically, he was left with no other choice but to learn XML. However, this turned to be more difficult task than he believed. XML's tangled syntax and self-referencing meta-structure can confuse even most sophisticated developers... Michael went so far that he overthrown Ajith in our XML forum and became a moderator himself. Ha, even this butchery tactics did not help. Currently, he is investigating possibilities of establishing the remote control on Mapraputa 1.8.X via RMI, JINI, and the like.
Unfortunately now it's hard to say who has control on Mapraputa, if any. I am afraid, you will have to resort to acts of random provocations, as Jason suggested.

I would agree that Map is out of control!

On a related note: my kids assert that I have never been able to find them in a game of hide-and-seek; I'm not sure when it will occur to them that after counting out loud, I never look.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
