Mac OS X running VMware hosting a Leopard Server VM. Nifty.
Scott Devine is teaching Virtual Machines: Versatile Platformsfor Systems and Processesat Columbia, and his lectures are online! Who is he? “Co-founder of VMware“.
Another JSR 168 and JSF fan. He also rightly calls out EJB (the mass psychosis foisted on the industry for 8 years), as well as the goodness and righteousness of Hibernate, Spring and GWT
…of death! Nope, not a fan of either. How’d you guess? No, that’s wrong. I like portals. Yahoo. Google. Others. I find the portal JSRs to be flawed beyond reproach, in fundamental and incurable ways. Er, die biatch die?
4 minute montage of the Enterprise 2-parter – 2 hours in 4 minutes. Good audio for it.
“Revenge is a dish best served cold…” “You have to learn why things work [on a starship]…” (@ 7:20+)
Now if only I had this years ago.
Directions to change the default encoding to UTF-8. Important if you get replies from MS Outlook or Outlook Express (like you can avoid that these days).
Neat. Wish there was a Windows version.
IOW, ‘enterprise’ doesn’t have to mean ‘ugly’ or ‘painful’.
Virtual machine creator for VMware. Web based with lots of options; nice way to complement VMware Player, for those who don’t want or need more (yet need to create VMs).
Jerry Pournelle got one and (unsurprisingly) likes it.
As mentioned: S-expressions (think the lisp format) are much nicer, more compact, and easier to use than XML, while sharing almost all of the same properties otherwise. For example: <tag1> <tag2> <tag3/> </tag2> <tag1> becomes: (tag1 (tag2 (tag3) ) ) It also becommes [tag1 [tag2 [tag3] ] ] for those of us who prefer JSON…
“XML is like violence: if it doesn’t solve your problem, you aren’t using enough of it.” Heh.
Fight scene from Fist of Fury. The nunchaks move faster than the camera can follow, and it’s not camera trickery – he really was that fast. F*cking A.
Interesting performance study.
So there may be something to that old maxim “In all things, balance.”
