Today I was pondering how long I wait....wait for screens to load...wait for applications to churn....wait for test cases to conclude...wait for response in e-mail....wait for updates on my social networks....wait for food to be prepared...wait in lines ..... wait at stop lights..... wait for meetings to start....wait for meetings to end.... etc etc etc.
But what about technology? How long am I willing to wait? 8- 10-20 or 30 seconds? I've read about the power of Ajax , lean green and Linux, AIX performance and LAMP. Still as I wait for the browser to refresh does it help that I understand the technology? Could it be my network, my browser, my processor, memory, the application, phase of the moon or the coder that I have to "blame" for my wait?
Blame? Should I not be looking at waiting as a blessing not a curse? After reading about SolarNetOne, I am going to look at ever refresh of the screen as a "moment of zen". Those few seconds (even if it seems like minutes) are to be treasured and not counted. ....I will do my best to remember that...what about you?
