Thinking if I need to upgrade my personal R&D desktop PC. A quad core platform? I got spoiled by the Ultrasparc T1. Now if the Intel Q9xxx’s are settled in by May or so… Til then, just need to put my old PC back up. Buy a new monitor. See what I can do with 1 GB RAM – it’s a DDR machine, so upgrading memory is expensive. Memory is the bottleneck, as the 2.4 Ghz Celeron D is still fine.

I’m surprised. The EJB 3.0 book is quite easy to understand. I hope real development is just as easy.

Now reading the EJB 3.0 book by Monson-Haefel and Burke. I haven’t been doing much Java EE, traditional or new school, so I need to catch up. The good thing about EJB 3 is that the persistence is JPA so I can use it in standalone programs.

Great the OpenJDK is released. Finally, my Java work runs on an open source (actually Free Software – GPL) platform. I hope an Ubuntu package is available soon. I’ll also try to build it from source.

Looks like PinoyWebStartup is on to something. Must compose a longer post on my blog.

Was supposed to study Scala. No time, thanks to Java studying. How timely, now that many articles come out.

Now that makes me forget about about the Java NIO book I added to my Safari. NIO is a topic that I wanted to study before, since I wanted to get into “low level Java.” But, I can barely use it now, and it’s quite boring.

I agree with the Amazon reviews. Horstmann’s Core Java book is well-written. Very engaging.
