Do NOT work with homebrewXS.

Image
 Let's start things off simple. We do not EVER condone harassment. This is a call to not work with homebrewXS. Anyone who harasses homebrewXS for what I am going to share in this blog post is no better, maybe even worse than homebrewXS itself. DO NOT HARASS THE HOMEBREWXS TEAM!! With that disclaimer out of the way, let me explain the situation. I am not one for cancel culture. I think, in MOST situations it is unproductive and idiotic. It takes a lot to piss me off. This isn't even something I would publicly do to the people who sexually assaulted me. Why am I doing it? Well, if it was just that the homebrewXS's teams were calling me names, bullying me in private, even if they called me a "faggot", I would not care. Private bullshit should stay private. But now, this is becoming a public war. Jason, the CEO of homebrewXS recently impersonated a Fivnex partner and my personal friend of close to a year. This happened over a well-known Discord server relating to Pin

Why We Work With Our Competition, Not Against Them.

 As of February 24th, 2020, we partnered with Midstall Software . The company behind a mobile/semi-desktop operating system known as ExpidusOS . Now, we have been planning and working on Potabi ever since we were forced to shut down the ArisbluBSD and ArisredLinux projects, in late January or early February. Potabi does plan to focus on mobile products (Pinephone being our main target). This directly competes with ExpidusOS and Midstall Software, whom we partnered with. Why did this happen? This was not an accident on our end, I knew when Midstall filled out the partnership form , we knew we were competitors. Whether or not they knew, I am not sure. However, in many cases, working with the competition is better for both businesses. As my mom always says, "teamwork makes the dream work." Working together, we can still compete, but build each other up. This is better for both of us.  We will GLADLY work with the competition, as long as they are willing to work with us. Beating

Fivnex Computer Operating System Support.

 These are the operating systems that we are either going to support, considering to support, and planning to support (with further testing). The list of "To Support" are operating systems we have an absolute plan to support. This list is the shortest. The list of "Possible Supported Options" are operating systems we are considering support for, but it is not absolutely certain, and probably highly unlikely to support. Finally is "Planned To Support (After Testing)" are operating systems we absolutely want to support, but only if our existing hardware designs function with them. This list is mostly non-Linux operating systems like BSD systems, Illumos-based systems, and Minix systems. There are NO promises made to support other than "To Support." The other lists still need heavy consideration and testing. Even the "Planned To Support (After Testing)" list is not promised, even if the operating systems work perfectly. To Support Potabi F

MEML & Keter: Short List of Features

 By no means is this an extensive list, but what I feel are the most important features of MEML and Keter respectively. At least the most important PLANNED features. For MEML: - Simplified syntax - Easier front-end development (dropdown tags, viewports, meta tags, etc) - Automatic mobile integration - Variables and basic scripting within MEML - Simplified CSS animations - Easier layering scheme (XYZ axes) for images, videos, text, and buttons - Support for PWA development within MEML itself For Keter: - Integration with TypeScript, CoffeeScript, Ruby, PHP, and WebAssembly - Features from both JavaScript and PHP (a simplified version of both) - Stylesheet scripting (Keyframes, CSS changing, animations, etc) - Transpiler to JavaScript/PHP to work in any browser. Give us feedback! Fivnex is about innovation and simplification. We want to hear any and all opinions. Email [email protected] for ideas, feature requests, and more!

MEML: A New Language For a Modern Web [AND OTHER FIVNEX WIP INNOVATIONS FOR THE MODERN WEB]

 "Phones were the beginning of the end of the web. Now people can't build a website without worrying on how it looks on some tiny screen you can't fit stuff on, you have to add a meta tag just to avoid weird scaling, you're expected to optimize images, etc" - Archie The modern era of web development is a joke. Today, you cannot expect to make a website in 20 minutes (and make it any good). Far too many people are breaking apart at the seams trying to do web-dev. As a web developer, and programmer I have to say that making a website is HORRIBLE! And there are a couple reasons for this. HTML, JavaScript, and CSS are some of the WORST offenders when it comes to the problems of web development. Why? THEY ALL SUCK! ESPECIALLY JavaScript and CSS. While tools and frameworks help, they are often bloated, slow, and made in JavaScript. Now for those who do not know, I despise JavaScript to the point it is banned for direct development. Now sadly, JavaScript is a modern skil
