Random information on the term “MOP”:
In computer science, a metaobject is an object that manipulates, creates, describes, or implements objects (including itself). The object that the metaobject pertains to is called the base object. Some information that a metaobject might define includes the base object’s type, interface, class, methods, attributes, parse tree, etc. Metaobjects are examples of the computer science concept of reflection, where a system has access (usually at run time) to its own internal structure. Reflection enables a system to essentially rewrite itself on the fly, to alter its own implementation as it executes.
A metaobject protocol (MOP) provides the vocabulary (protocol) to access and manipulate the structure and behaviour of systems of objects. Typical functions of a metaobject protocol include:
Metaobject protocol is contrary to the “closed” aspect of Bertrand Meyer’s open/closed principle, which holds that software object systems should be open for extension but closed for modification. Metaobject protocol, by contrast, transparently exposes the internal composition of objects and the entire object system in terms of the system itself. A metaobject protocol is not merely an interface to an “underlying” implementation; rather, through metaobject protocol the object system is recursively implemented in terms of a meta-object system, which itself is theoretically implemented in terms of a meta-metaobject system, and so on until an arbitrary base case (a consistent state of the object system) is determined, with the protocol as such being the recursive functional relationship between these implementation levels.
Random information on the term “TAR”:
Tar is the common name for the resinous, partially combusted particulate matter produced by the burning of tobacco and other plant material in the act of smoking. Tar is toxic and damages the smoker’s lungs over time through various biochemical and mechanical processes. Tar also damages the mouth by rotting and blackening teeth, damaging gums, and desensitizing taste buds. Tar includes the majority of mutagenic and carcinogenic agents in tobacco smoke. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), for example, are genotoxic via epoxidation.
There is a common misconception that the tar in cigarettes is equivalent to the tar used on roads. As a result of this, cigarette companies in the United States, when prompted to give tar/nicotine ratings for cigarettes, usually use “tar,” in quotation marks, to indicate that it is not the road surface component. Tar is occasionally referred to as an acronym for total aerosol residue, a backronym coined in the mid-1960s.
Random information on the term “GOB”:
Gob is a Canadian punk band from Langley, British Columbia, formed in 1993. The band consists of Tom Thacker, Theo Goutzinakis, Gabe Mantle and Steven Fairweather. Juno nominated for best new group in 2000, and another Juno nomination for best video in 2002. Gob’s most successful album is World According to Gob. Their best-selling songs to date are “I Hear You Calling”, “Soda”, and “Banshee Song”. They have been featured in movies, TV shows and many sporting video games such as NHL 2002, NHL 2003, NHL 2004 and Madden NFL 2004 with songs such as “I’ve Been Up These Steps”, “Sick With You” (both re-mixed for the game), “I Hear You Calling” and “Give Up The Grudge”. The band has appeared at several music festivals, the most well-known being the Vans Warped Tour. Most recently, the band has been noticed due to singer/guitarist Thacker’s involvement as a lead guitarist in Sum 41.
Gob formed in 1993 consisting of Tom Thacker as lead guitarist and vocalist, Theo Goutzinakis as rhythm/co-lead guitarist and vocalist, Patrick “Wolfman Pat” Paszana on drums, and Kelly Macauley on bass guitar. Thacker and Goutzinakis often switched between lead vocals with Goutzinakis playing the occasional lead guitar line. During the early days of the band, Tom usually kept his place as lead guitar while Theo had more vocal duties and focused on rhythm guitar. They recorded their self-titled Gob in 1993 and released it in 1994 on Landspeed Records with the odd numbered tracks sung by Theo and the even numbered tracks sung by Tom. The tracks 1, 2 and 8 were re-recorded and released on their next album Too Late… No Friends. Kelly Macauley was replaced by Jamie Fawkes and in 1995 Gob released Too Late… No Friends on Mint Records and Landspeed Records. It was later reissued by Nettwerk in 2000. After the release of Too Late… No Friends, Gob had replaced many bassists until they found Craig Wood. “Wolfman” Pat left the band due to his daughter, Rhyleah, being born before the recording of “How Far Shallow Takes You”, so the band replaced him with Gabe Mantle, former member of a Vancouver Punk band Brand New Unit. With a newly formed band, Gob released How Far Shallow Takes You. It was home to a heavier sound with a better production value, mature lyrics focusing on personal and political issues and a growth in musicianship in contrast to “Too Late… No Friends” snotty, immature attitude. It was released on Fearless records in 1998 but re-released in 1999 on Landspeed because of conflicts with Fearless. It was also re-released on Nettwerk records that same year.
