Recently I read the article about chewing up leaders
and spitting them out so to speak. I am not familiar
with these particular developers who have decided to
exit the community. However I find it distressing
that the dedication that they once held to the community
is forgotten in the blink of an eye. That out of the
way I will now brief the community with my current
situation and a few beliefs that have guided me.
I am twenty years old with 0 income attempting
to earn a name for myself in the software engineering
community. Those who would agree with me might say
I am a determined perfectionist(those who would not
would prefer to call me a stubborn mule).
My goal is to create mass production in society
through use of flexible easy to use GUI's providing
distributed environments to computer users ranging
from the personal to the corporation level.
In these efforts I hope to gain returns in any or
all of the following:
Wide Scale Recognition of my Skills
Research Contacts
Revenue for Continuation of Research(this can take many
  forms. Cost of living, or scholarship receival from
  an educational institution.)
Some of my requests may be critized, but the work
that developing requires is not easy especially
for someone with financial pressure such as mine.
If you have managed to stick with this entry to
this point even if you do not agree with all of
my proposals then I will divulge some of the features
that my completed OODBMS displays.

Written in java(used relative file names and took into account all platform dependant barriers although it is still untested on most platforms) Event Queue capable of processing events in the background. Also has the ability of turning on a cache which stores event instructions until the user desires to flush the queue and thus execute the events. Easy to navigate tree hierarchy used to navigate catalogs, templates, and tables contained in the database. Customizable templates allowing flexibility of columns, automatic image column, and partitioning of data contained within tables. Multiple table searches depending on data contained in columns. SQL mapping of add update delete(across the TCP). Copy and paste items from one table to another. Multiple tables initialized at the same time. Dynamic spreadsheets(Associations) with portions of the calculation equation comming from multiple tables(configuration is persistant). Store up to 20 static spreadsheets. Print tables, Associations, and automatic image displayer. Create HTML tables cloned from database tables(uses some javascript for displaying images). Partitioned or Full saving of tables. Create server sockets for receiving data into a certain table and client sockets for exporting data out of certain tables(TCP). Error logging.

Thankyou for your interest
