Westborough, MA

I wrote a nice, long post, hit the "Publish" button, and was rewarded with the dreaded 404 Not Found error. I guess I shouldn't be surprised — computer networks have not been kind to me lately. I think I forgot to swing the mouse cable over my head counterclockwise when I sacrified that chicken by the light of the full moon…

Anyway, hi from Westborough, MA. I'm teaching three classes twice. By that I mean I've got a three-class series that's being done once up here in Westborough and once down in Philadelphia. The classes are two weeks in May, two in June, and two in July. That eats up a lot of schedule, as you might imagine. I think I've got an EJB class in Columbus, OH coming up, too, and maybe an Advanced Java class down in Jacksonville just to complete the set. When I hit August I think I'll be ready for a break.

On the other hand, in August I get to teach a Hibernate class for the first time, which ought to be fun. I'd like to start teaching Ajax and Ruby on Rails classes, but I'm still not quite ready for the latter and I don't have any decent materials for the former. I'll get there, though.

Random MS joke: "Did you hear that Microsoft was thinking of adding advertising banners on its blue screen of death?"

(I usually follow up with "This blue screen of death brought to you by Sun Microsystems.")

My server at home still isn't serving. Nuts. I fought with the DNS stuff all weekend. At least I can get my email again, though, which I lost for a while. Talk about feeling deaf, dumb, and blind!
