jdk 1.4.1 released

10 years of thinkpad

The IBM Thinkpad line of notebooks "turned 10" last saturday. CNET covers it here. All but one of the notebooks I've had have been Thinkpads, and they are all still being used somewhere. Having worked at IBM Research I might be a bit biased :-), but it's truly a great machine, and one that has consistently come out with innovations on the notebook field (e.g., first TFT, first trackpoint device, first DVD, first full-size keyboard, and on and on...).

slow email? it's an upgrade

Last thursday Internet traffic slowed down considerably. Chris sent me this link to a wired news story on why it happened. Apparently someone decided to upgrade the software a relatively large portion of the routers at UUNET without properly testing it first. Smart.
