July 26, 2005, 11:08 p.m.

The first new version of Mega Upload since last October has just been released. It is version 0.40 of the java edition.

What's cool about netbeans

July 26, 2005, 6:31 a.m.

There are quite a few things about netbeans that makes it really attractive. Let's forget the big things like the fact that netbeans is open source etc and look at some of the small things that makes it fun to use.One of the features that I really like is that way it opens up resource bundles. When ...

More perl gripes

July 23, 2005, 10:19 a.m.

I hate reading the perl documentation. Perhaps having the 'man' version instead of the html version contributed to my woes. But changing over to the HTML version didn't make rtfm any easier. Oh btw they forgot to add a page for sysopenEven if you had the HTML version it's organization is a poor cous ...

More netbeans gripes and a bug

July 18, 2005, 4:44 a.m.

A couple of more gripes but first a bug. I have more than one project that has the same set of java files. Ideally these files should be compiled and placed in a jarfile. But we don't live in an ideal world. So instead of a single jar file I have multiple subversion branches.After working on one pro ...

Perl Gripes

July 14, 2005, 1:29 a.m.

Many many years ago, I used to write a lot of perl code. Then I discovered PHP and thankfully I didn't have to use perl anymore. As a result I have forgotten many of the perl tricks that I learnt. Now you might say that is good news, unfortunately occaisionally I find myself occaisionally having to ...

JNI and applets

July 9, 2005, 11:42 p.m.

I have to call some native methods from inside and applet but all the pundits are saying you cannot use JNI with applets. That does not worry me at all. When we created the Rad SFTP Applet we heard the same thing. But that product went onto become featured on the java website.JNI is something that h ...

Profiling Java Apps with Netbeans

July 5, 2005, 8:41 p.m.

Had a go at at the Netbeans profiler. The first thought that comes to mind is that it is rather strange. It will only work with the java 5 update 4 or Java 6. The java 6 early access was made available only a few days ago.Immidately upon upgrading from update 3 to update 4, Netbeans refused to start ...

Cut and paste and share-it

July 3, 2005, 8:48 p.m.

Share-it as we all know is an organization that supposedly makes it easier for you to sell your software. That would be true if they knew a thing or two about customer support.One of the biggest problems with share-it is that you do not get an instant download link when you complete your order. If s ...
