RE: [xml-dev] [FOSI] was RE: [xml-dev] XML has arrived

I edit with PFE and parse with batch.  OTOH, if they have ArborText, I'm
happy to use that.  When they bought those systems, they were trying to get
first class support for mission critical applications.  Even with their new
content standards, they still have lots of SGML.

In defense of defense, their budgets are stretched tighter than Madonna's
facial.  Anything innovative is waiting for a new Congress that actually
does have the troops on their agenda.  Betty can tell you as can I what
happens to research and development when the customers are doing their real
jobs somewhere over there.

Still, there is a lot we could do for the guys and gals in the desert with
real time chat, integrated real-time 3D, VOIP and so on.  I'd like that a
lot.  After the last nine years of being on the sidelines fuming, it would
be good to be working on something worthy for the last fifteen.

There are - I worked on "trilogi" for a few years which is a next gen
IETM for Eurofighter, Type-45 destroyer (and many others) I think they
were also getting the JSF...

I sat a few desks away was a friend writing FOSI's for other projects,
so they're still alive and kicking.  (he also happily edited DTDs with
notepad, so I guess you need to be a special kind of person to write
FOSI's all day)
