…down the cafe through the bar pass the hippies and the jars…

Java versioning is ridiculous. I think Sun is playing a huge prank on Java developers.

You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is, “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”, but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line”!

Anyway, I didn’t expect the thing that happened to Jack Nicholson in the end of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to happen. Well, I did, but I expected it to happen in a different way. After seeing that movie and Easy Rider and some of the others, I feel like the movies from the AFI Top 100 focus on a person or people for a few days or weeks. Show them doing stuff. Some good stuff. Some bad stuff. Happy moments. Sad moments. Really get to know the person, you know? Then they die.

Although, Hitchcock movies don’t really fit into that mold too well. They have their own style… and they’re all so unique. Vertigo, Rear Window and Psycho are great. I should add some to my Netflix queue. Actually… if anyone is dying to buy me a winter holiday gift…

I think I usually get around 6 and a half hours of sleep each night. I kinda feel like there’s lots of stuff I could do, but not enough time to do it in. Oh well.

    No kidding on the Java versioning. First there’s 1.0 and 1.1. Ok, cool. But then there’s Java 1.2. Wait, no, let’s call that Java 2. Ok, fine. But instead of just calling it Java 2.0, they decide it’s Java2 version 1.2. Then Java2 1.3. Alright, alright. Stupid, but fair enough. So Java2 version 1.5 comes out. Whoopee! No, no. We’re dropping the 1. So, this is Java 5! But not really. It’s still Java 2. Except it’s Java 2, 5.0. I give up.

    Ironically, it looks like Gaim is at 1.5.0 right now, so you should just call it Gaim5 and reap the rewards of marketing.

    So for a winter holiday gift you want the ability to stay up all night?
