Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

It's good to be home

After a week and a half on the road, it's awesome to be home. JavaOne was a great time, but pretty exhausting too - and I didn't even go to any sessions! After attending the Ajax Experience, all the JavaOne topics seemed like old news. Actually, I was motivated on Thursday, but when I tried to register using the schedule builder, all sessions were full. Hot topics of the week were GWT, Avatar in JSF and Java EE. I do hope to checkout GWT sometime, but it'll probably take me a month or two. I'm booked at clients for the next couple of weeks, and after that I'd rather just enjoy the summer than work 12-hour days. As far as AppFuse 1.9.2, that's high on my list - but it'll probably take me a couple days to complete since I'll be doing it at night.

The Tangosol/SolarMetric party didn't disappoint, and Geronimo Live was a smashing success. There's a bunch of pictures (and video) posted on the Virtuas Travels Blog.

I arrived home Friday afternoon and the fun hasn't stopped. Softball game yesterday, followed by 3 BBQs and a night of playing with the kids on a friend's swingset. Today, we went to the 12th Annual VWs on the Green show. Unfortunately, it was 90°F, so we didn't last long. I'd like to say I got some good ideas for my bus, but in reality I chased Abbie and Jack around the whole time. Below are some pictures from the show today. As for my bus, it's in the shop, but no work has begun. I need to visit them this week to get something in writing so they can start doing body work.

Giant Bug and Jack Can we run up the hill Dad?

Nice shots indeed Matt. But what really grabbed my attention is the "wait while loading Romain style" overlay and the dialog where the picture comes in after clicking in one of the pictures here. Not sure if you have commented about this before, but just in case you have not, can you post the snippet you use for that pls? Thanks in advance, Gustavo.
