What Have We Learned From This Open Source Project? Here is the collected wisdom that we have gained from running the Taskwarrior project for nine years. It has been rewarding, enjoyable, and sometimes frustrating. We learned a lot about users and Open Source expectations.

So, Sony says it's too hard to implement PS3 backward compatibility on PS4...and here I am streaming an Xbox 360 game from my Xbox One to a Windows 10 PC.

Comparisons aside, the Xbox streaming is a great solution when I can't play on the main TV.

It's public beta right now, but +Rackspace's Carina  #Docker  container hosting is a breeze to use. It uses Docker Swarm under the hood, so it's clean and proper.

I'm pleased to report the 360 backward compatibility is flawless. I also seem to have more patience for Fallout 3 now...didn't get far at all before.

I'm itching to upgrade my current project to Spring Boot 1.3; however, I'm glad I noticed the change in spring-boot:run's handling of live updates in src/main/resources.

Not surprised. I have noticed that the Apple update software fails almost every time, leaving me the option to manually download and update...which I rarely remember to do.

Story

Software architects are artists too
Introduction
I am a software developer working primarily with Java these days. I like architecting software solutions, which to me means: think big picture, find patterns in the problem and solution space, and code up elegant solutions.

Behind every great project I leave behind a framework and a solution, but going into a project the solution comes first.

It's a nice, big nature park that you wouldn't expect in the suburbs...however, on hot days too much of the paths are not shaded and become unbearable. The unpaved walking trails, which we prefer, are a crap shoot -- some have great views, varying terrain, etc; but some take you into areas full of poison ivy. The playground is great for younger kids and I like that it has wheelchair access without being gaudy about it.

They have a much better selection of games than any other arcade I have seen in a long time -- lots of pinball machines, a few retro machines, and ticket-games that aren't just pull the lever/drop the coin...and not 50% driving games and 50% shooting games like too many arcades these days.
