One of the cool features of the new GD.Net software is that you can have more than one journal, be it local or linked to a remote one, something I discovered quite quickly but couldn't come up with a use for so I mostly ignored it. The reason why I'm using it now is because I've decided I want to make a seperation between my 'technical' entries where I talk about projects, be they planned or in progress, and 'opinion pieces' where I give my thoughts on things and offer opinions on technology changes in the programming world.
The Ronseal thing; well there is a well known advert in the UK for a product line called Ronseal which does things like 'protect hardwood' and the like the their tag line is "does what is says on the tin", thus the point of this journal is to do what it says; give thoughts and opinions
One thing I will say, when I start throwing things out I welcome feedback, counter points or indeed, if you have them, facts to totally disprove what I've been ranting about. Try to keep things constructive (any comments which I consider insulting and counter productive will get removed, so I'd avoid the usage of the term 'n00b' for example if you have a point to make ;) ) and generally friendly. I might make a few controversal posts from time to time as it is to a degree opinion based but I'll try to be respectful when I can
