“Please comply”

Last night I was chasing people who were putting bombs in buildings and flying shape-shifters (who I would later realize were on my side). When I started to catch up to them I’d find myself yelling, “please comply.” I give a “thumbs up” for the action/adventure part of the dream, but the writing and line delivery were just horrible.

This was going to be my office in Palmer, Alaska

In 2011 I was living in Palmer, Alaska, and I just started to look into renting this building to be a home for my software-consulting business when some personal issues came up and I had to move back to the Lower-48.

Honestly, there probably wasn’t enough work in the Palmer/Wasilla area — also known as the Mat-Su Valley — but I loved the area so much I wanted to give it a try.

I've been using JBuilder X Foundation a lot lately. I've had to do a lot of prototyping for a current project, and as far as I've seen JBuilder has the best JFC/Swing generating tools around, bar none. So, I ditched an attempt to start working with Eclipse and I went back to the free version of JBuilder, and I haven't been disappointed.
