    It’s been a long time since I’ve slept in an actual bed and eaten a home cooked meal. I’ve been a derelict, a wanderer, living off the land, so to speak, traveling from town to town; a modern age nomad. I try to be all noble about it...

    I would like to take a moment and say to everyone that the persons depicted in my story Hard Reboot were fictional, and all similarities to persons living and dead are purely coincidental. If you believe certain individuals have been defamed, derided...

    Stalking Java

    • 3 Comments
    I got mail again today inviting me to the JavaOne conference. It's kind of sad. I can't imagine getting a good reception out of the people there if I were to show up with a name tag emblazoned with 'Microsoft.' Though, maybe with the New Deal between...

    Code Warriors

    The smell of sulfur is in the air, as clouds of smoke slowly dissipate in the stale wind. The debris of war is strewn across the battlefield; crumpled metal canisters, oil stained boxes and the melted remains left by soldiers long gone; nothing left standing...

    More Monkeys

    For those of you that missed this link on Saturday, I've reposted so you can find out what happens when you ask a programmer to fix a science experiment. He gestured with his hands for me to follow him, but I just stood there, my brain spinning in...

    ObjectSpaces: The Devil is in the Demand

    • 25 Comments
    On object persistence I’m object persnickety. I’ve looked at this problem space quite a bit over the last five years. I’ve built systems and frameworks galore that provide a multitude of different styles of object-relational mapping...

    Snig the Email Goblin

    • 0 Comments
