Ponderous?

BLAH! Vagueness in the market place………

Is Vista really selling well or not?

Is the X-Box really outperforming the PS3?

Is the WII really selling more consoles then both Sony and Microsoft?

Is web pages across the internet still 80% written in PHP?



Ponderous questions which lead to endless debates, without any definitive arguments or facts.

Hmm…..



Anyways, had a look at the new Mac Mini inclusive of the beautiful 20’inch (R7000) accompanying it.

Its amazing how few Mac users actually realise its UNIX (guess thats Apple’s selling poinit).

But what get’s me (ponderous no.2) is, why doesn’t Linux look and perform that well.



Hmm…..I mean XGL is far more awesome then Vista’s Aero……but still KDE/Gnome seem

almost third rate in comparison to Tiger or Vista.



End Mindless Dribble.

Well I’m back

After a spat of moving from one Browser to the next in search of who knows what.

Guess sometimes you need a change, and well I left Flock, and moved to SeaMonkey.

After enjoying a long run with SeaMonkey it dawned on me, Firefox is a most productive tool,

especially with my ScribeFire addons, URL automated search (no extra click) and the beautiful FoxMarks

which for me makes delete.icio.us.



Moving on, I’ve now updated my main website with a very cool Jar Builder Installer.

After scouring the net and being particularly lazy, I couldn’t find a decent Installer Builder.

Everything either required me to hack some Ant Build Script to work through a sequence of XML files.

All in all, IzPack looked pretty good, but as an admin you seen realiase, that most onsite installations at customers

rarely ever have a GUI. So in desiring something command-line driven and simple, I wrote a basic jar GUI, and it

seems to work pretty well.



It also provides a Java Entrypoint Class which you can configure to execute any script you like, either in

windows or unix.



Well thats me, time to sleep.

This 3:00 AM thing is becoming to frequent.
