First: If you have not noticed, I've started restructuring the blog to reduce its ugliness quotient. First and foremost was the addition of dp.SyntaxHighlighter - truly mana from heaven. However - it requires code to exist in textareas, not pre, so RSS feeds will look kind of ugly until I figure out a fix (blame blogger - they like to injects <br/> after lines). I also added some better RSS (Feedburner) and rocked out the linkwhoring at the bottom of each article.
Second: I finally got added to the Terracotta committers page! Now whose leg do I have to hump to get my name added onto Maven?
Third: Apparently my post about overriding nil in Ruby ruffled a few feathers amongst the Java crowed. Who'd have known null was a sacred cow? If that is the case, I'm curious as to the backlash concerning my next post "5 Reasons Static Typing Sucks".
Fourth: A belated congratulations to Jimbojw for his (fairly) recent promotion as a MediaWiki committer!
