Good Grasp on what Appcelerator is

Just read the 5 short chapters about what Appcelerator is
It will take 5 minutes and it explain it all.

(I already looked at their site, but didn't find clear explanation, beyond "... everything you need to build RIAs and SOA-based services the way you want — while being flexible bla bla bla ..."

Note also that they added support for Google AppEngine : so you can easily deploy your backend on Google services.

Bruno,

You definitely found the best technical description of Appcelerator (ironically, we hide it in the docs). As you might expect, we use technical descriptions on our .org site and more business terms on our .com site.

Either way, I'm glad you found what you were looking for and hope to see you on the Appcelerator forums soon :)

VirtualBox, CentOS, Network and Template

I have been working with VirtualBox and CentOS recently, here are some notes about this experience.
I used VirtualBox 4.2 and CentOS 6.3, but most of this should work with other products too. I created the first headless, minimal CentOS via NetInstall.
I cover two points: create a template machine and configure the Network.
Configure the NetworkWe want Internet access and a LAN local to the host.
For background information read: Networking in VirtualBox by Fat Bloke on June 2012.
The easiest is to enable two Network Adapters: One will be "Host-only" and the second "Nat". In the "Preference" menu you can see the DHCP server range for the Host-only Network. So you may set fixed addresses outside this range.
Next: start the guest. There may be various results at first, depending on a lot of things. Some problem might be solved by rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and a reboot.
Anyway, configure the two interfaces (set your own IP and MAC addresses)…

One in six IT projects ends up ‘out of control’

http://www.ox.ac.uk/media/news_stories/2011/110822_1.html

A surprisingly high number of projects are 'ticking time bombs', according to researchers at the University of Oxford. They analysed 1,500 global projects that had revamped their information technology systems within the last 10 years. They discovered that one in six projects in the sample went over budget by an average of 200 per cent (in real terms) or over ran by an average of almost 70 per cent.

Their conclusion is similar to previous studies: http://brunovernay.blogspot.com/2009/10/excellent-studies-on-software-quality.html
