My name is Florian Ventura, I am french and I would like to suggest you this book about the history of the silver and the reality of the monetary system. http://www.amazon.com/Silver-throughout-History-Cyrille-Jubert/dp/1492762180/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1379925134&sr=8-1&keywords=cyrille+jubert. The rabbit hole is deeper than we think.
I think it may interest you.
Have a good day.
Idj commented on node.js Is VB6 - Does node.js Suck?.
I scrolled down to write a comment exactly like this one. Thanks for saving me the time.
Anyway, node.js is NOT a replacement for PHP and stuff nor a better RoR etc...
You should see node.js like... nodes. small pieces that interact together. Writing a whole website using it is pretty stupid imho.
A nice architecture would be, an HTML + JS frontend, communicating Restfully with a backend written in node that spawns other node.js (workers) processes for time consuming tasks etc... (no server side page generation here (i know i am pretty strict on that)).
In short, use node.js for what it is good at, and do not try to replace with node.js and say it does not perform well.
