No post this week

leave a comment »

There won’t be a blog post this week since my daughter has decided that sleeping is optional for her. I have not been able to sit and write text during the evenings. I have coded a bit though and hopefully you will see the outcome of that next week.

My review of Twitter clients

leave a comment »

I have used multiple Twitter client since I’ve first started using the service. The reason for that is that most of them are in fact pretty bad and it took me a while to find the set of Twitter client I can use at home, at work and on my mobile device, on Windows but mostly on Linux.

Google Wave invites

with 6 comments

Edit: … and we are done. There is no more invites left. Thank you.


Edit: There is only 1 invite remaining. I’ve given away 5 remaining invites to my Twitter friend @balty for a contest on his blog Les 2 Geeks (french). You can participate in his contest until November 14th. There is still 1 invite up for grab right now on this blog so grab it before I give them to somebody else.


I have received 8 Google Wave invites to give away. I know this is still in demand, but it seems everyone that was interested in Google Wave in my immediate cyber-vicinity already surfing the Wave.

So, I’m opening up my invites to the whole Internet and will give away a invite to the first 8 interested people that comments on this entry. Don’t forget to write a reachable email address.

I expect nothing in return but if want to spend a few minutes considering the rests of the posts on my blog, I’ll be grateful.

Where the author realizes the significance of the String.intern() method

I might have hinted about in in my previous post on the subject of strings in Java, yet I did not realize the significance of String.intern() method. The following code sample demonstrates the behavior of the String.intern() method, similar to what I demonstrated in the post.
