I tried skype once more after having used it a lot 5 years ago. Is it me or went the quality of the product down the drain ? Finding new contacts is a shoot and miss operation. The search simply doesn't work very well. I cannot find family, it does not find people from whom I had the skype name. Then when calling, the call simply does not happen. Often one side can hear the other but not the other way around and so on. I have a distinct microsoft feel with the new skype.

Ah, this reminds me: my experience for Skype under Mint and Ubuntu was horrible.  It was so bad that I must have mentally blocked it.  This experience happened before the MS acquisition in 2011 though, so I don't think MS was at fault for this.

Okay people, here is a question. While everyone is raving about the winter solstice.... Why is the beginning of the winter termed the solstice. It is not the longest night of the winter nor is it the middle of the winter. To see that, check the camera at Tromsö university. At this moment there is still light ! In January however there is no light, so it would stand to reason that the longest nights are indeed in the middle of January. Same goes for June. It is in July that you have the most light. Not in June. Anyone cares for an explanation that is not mythical/mystical. The current weather observations in Tromsö can be seen here: http://weather.cs.uit.no/cam/index.html I captured the one at 10:30

Also, astronomically, the earth is closest to the sun on Jan 3, 2015, marking another important spot in our year. Winter solstice and perihelion are however not linked, just some 2 weeks apart.

Sad but true. The NDA's I have seen are sometimes mind boggingly one sided. One of the more creative ones was that I signed away all past current and future rights of my BpmDj pet project to the university of Dortmund. After I explained them that I could never sign such a thing they rewrote it to say exactly the same. After that they tried to 'give' me their information for free so that they could somehow claim the ideas I had came actually from them. So I had to explain them that if we didn't agree to the NDA they should not be talking to me. Anyway, as he said: if they behave like that: better not talk to them anyway.

That is an amazing story mate - the way some people behave makes you wonder and think you are right the best thing is just not to bother with them

Has anyone already experience with JavaFx 8 ? From what I see this seems to be swing with some new classes and rebranded to give it some new life.

Given that swing had become a hopeless mess of things that never quite worked as you would suppose they did, I wonder whether javafx8 is the same ?

A seemingly good thing is that there are style sheets and animations and 3D scenes. Yet we know how well that has worked out for Java. A plethora of abandoned 3D engines. Some of which even pushed by Oracle in the past.

What interests me is thus: is JavaFX 8 fast enough (swing has been notoriously slow on most machines).  Like in: fast on windows, fast on linux and fast on mac ? For that matter does Java8 actually run on a mac without demanding the user jumps through hoops ?

And: is it reasonable to program or is this more of the same swing nonsense I've come to dislike ?
