Screw you Java 8 doclint, I will format my JavaDoc as I please!
Whoever thought it was a good idea to make HTML validation warnings into hard errors in the JavaDoc tool needs a solid spanking. While the intention of generating better quality HTML is noble, getting in the way of busy developers is unforgivable and surely counter-productive. Oh - hello "-Xdoclint:none". (There does not appear to be any setting for downgrading the severity.)

Blog on the subject: http://blog.joda.org/2014/02/turning-off-doclint-in-jdk-8-javadoc.html
JDK 8 includes many updates, but one is I suspect going to cause quite a few complaints - doclint for Javadoc. Javadoc doclint. Documentation is not something most developers like writing. With Java, we were fortunate to have the Javadoc toolset built in and easy to access from day one.

"Spring Batch - A lightweight, comprehensive batch framework designed to enable the development of robust batch applications vital for the daily operations of enterprise systems."

Apart from that it is actually neither being lightweight nor comprehensive. Creating a simple batch job requires setting up a a lot of pointless infrastructure, and the out-of-the-box functionality has plenty of rough edges and blind spots.
Spring Batch provides reusable functions that are essential in processing large volumes of records, including logging/tracing, transaction management, job processing statistics, job restart, skip, and resource management. It also provides more advanced technical services and features that will ...

wonders why Samsung does not describe their different monitor series on their website... You can choose a "type", after which you are dropped at a page with all the products "fitting the type" , and only with limited possible filters (e.g. "size" is not one of them). </rant>

I do of course expect to trip over the information in the most obvious location and making a fool of myself within the hour. ;)

It might be because, I'm turning thirty shortly, and is thereby officially "old", but I genuinely think this is a good point...

Citibank customer, arrested while trying to close her bank account. Thanks +Christopher Loflin

Reshare if you believe you ought to have the right to decide where your money is kept. The police are fully capable of escorting protesters inside the bank several at a time to close accounts. The banks just don't want it to happen.

In this video, 20 protesters are being held inside the bank until they can be arrested. They are not being violent. They just wanted to get their money. Near the end of the video, the police sweep another protester who is outside into the bank, so they can arrest her as well.

As someone in the youtube comments points out: None of this is legal. They don't even have a reason for arresting her! she should file a lawsuit for false arrest.

Spejder handler om at "At børn og unge udvikler sig til selvstændige og værdibaserede mennesker, der tager ansvar for eget liv og tager initiativ til at bygge et bedre samfund omkring sig."

Spejderbevægelsen har potentiale til at bidrage til det 21. århundredes største udfordringer, men det kræver at den bliver bedre til at fortælle, hvorfor den gør, som den gør, og samtidig tænke nyt. David Hansen, der er spejderchef for Det Danske Spejderkorps, giver sine bud på spejderbevægelsens største udfordringer.

It gets worse:

Apparently Oracle is deprecating the -XX:-UseSplitVerifier flag in Java 8, which will make the this workaround impossible and have us forever stuck with stack map frames.

That an MPAA official has actual compared the VCR to the Boston Strangler should invalidate their arguments for stricter IP enforcement. What a bunch of Luddites..
