Words of Wisdom from James Gosling

After reading James's All I Really Need to Know I Learned while Skiing with my Grandmother (damn, no permalink), I've come up with a Raible Developer Creed.

  • Balance - strive for it. If you're staying up late to develop, and you haven't spent a few hours with your friends/family that day - you're not being fair to yourself, or them.
  • You're breathing too hard. You must be doing something wrong. Take the time to learn before doing. This is going to be a tough one as I tend to just jump in and try to do something. However, I'm sure if I studied the technology/documentation first, it would actually take me less time to do it.
  • Inspiration is 99% Observation. I'm going to try to limit how much I do outside of the office and start observing more (via mailing lists/blogs). This will contribute greatly to the first item in my new creed.

Added "Comment" link to RSS Feed

Thanks to Lance, my RSS feed validates once again. [Details]. Also, I added a "Comment" link to the bottom of my posts (in the RSS feed). I got the idea from Russ and I think it's a good one. In my rss.vm file, I changed:



#if( $website.AllowComments )
   <p align="right"> 
   <a href="$absBaseURL/page/$
               anchor=$entry.anchor">Add a Comment</a>

In the code above, the href should all be one one line, but in order to get NetNewsWire to render my full post, I had to split it up. Is this a bug? It seems if I have a <pre> with too many characters (>80?), then it just ends the post.

If Roller users dig this enhancement, I'll commit it to CVS.

Feeling the love

Thanks to Erik for choosing me as one of his favorite Java bloggers. That's quite a compliment in my book - especially from one of my favorite bloggers.

Since it's Friday, here's a mp3little reminder.
