A lot of great things are called prologue these days 😉 My thumb still hurts from driving the Audi R8 for three consecutive hours trying to beat my lap time on the Eiger Nordwand. Still gotta buy one of these.
JavaOne 2008 is around the corner and closing in fast. It’s gonna be quite the busy schedule. It would probably be a wise idea to take the week off afterwards, but somehow I guess it ain’t gonna happen. Besides the regular schedule there’s a couple of BoFs at night that I want to attend too. Then there is the “party index”, courtesy of Wilfred Springer.
Rumour has it that this year’s Afterdark will feature SMASHMOUTH, an alternative rock band from San Jose, California. Never heard of them, but sounds great, so time for some bittorrent research 😉 Actually, it’s not rumours, but taken from an official Sun web page.
Coming Thursday, Sun Microsystems hosts a NLJUG JavaOne warm-up event in their local HQ in the Netherlands. A few dozens of Dutchmen will meet up and discuss their pilgrimage to San Francisco. If you’re reading this, you’re Dutch, and you’re going to JavaOne as well…please sign up at the NLJUG/JavaOne web site and you can also enjoy a Sonoma County wine-tour, and a great party on Sunday! But be quick…we're closing deals with the tour operator tomorrow. If you ain't Dutch…we cannot be bribed…but, you can always give it a try 😉
