From some Guy quoting some passage in some Bible:
Now. Take SiteFlash and Emily and you can build a deterministic finite state machine (aka computer) using web elements and virtualized proprietary elements. That's what all the hoorah is about Vertical Computer Systems intellectual property.
"...he (David) took his sling and placed in it a stone from his pouch. He swung and aimed it at Goliath. The stone shot from the whirling sling with the speed of an arrow and hit Goliath's head with great force. Blood gushed out, and Goliath thumped to the ground, lifeless, before he had a chance to draw his sword..." GO VCSY!!!
