Dave hooked me up with a little referrer love today by mentioning that I am now an official contributor to Roller. I love this software and it should be a lot of fun to watch it grow and evolve. Now I have to start patching all the bugs I logged. This blogging stuff is pretty fun, the only drawback is I dream about what I'm going to write the next day and have a hard time falling asleep. And then when I wake up, I can't remember what I was going to post, or it's not really newsworthy. I'm sure the intrigue will wear off as I do it more.
You might try adding
autoReconnect=true to your JDBC URL. Hat tip to Stephen Chambers, who seemed to offer the solution on the Struts User List today.
If you're a CVS/Windows user, and you're not using Tortoise CVS, you might want to look into it. It integrates nicely with Explorer and has recently had a 1.0 release. Thanks Francis Irving! Once you've installed it, try Timo's icons. They're my favorite out of the choices listed.
Zeldman turned me on to it. Web Standards for Hard Times is a great read for anyone that is (1) starting to develop a new website or (2) wondering why their site looks different in different browsers. The best thing to know:
Many developers still don't realize that newer browsers look for a
DOCENGINE tag at the top of each page, and will change the way they
behave in response to it. Without the correct tag, browsers can take
your standards-compliant page and render it all wrong.
