Not only is this a mess, it's no serious problem with Java 9 modularity. Back to classpath then. Or should we create all-in-one JAR for this mess? :-)

This guy is simply amazing. Clear, fun, to the point... (No I don't mean Donald, of course.)

Some of the Google Plus/Photos/Contacts stuff is just plain crazy. I wanted to share an album with my wife. When I do that, her contact does not have Photos mini-icon next to it - for the reasons neither of us understands.
When I share, she gets mail and can see the album - but not see it between shared albums. She can then click on that "cloud" icon up there and indeed she got the album into the list of the shared albums. But now I see there are two people (both of them my wifes!) on the album. Do you think you can remove one of them from the album as its owner? Forget it!
Google... these things are killing me (virtually of course) since you started to merge Gmail and Plus accounts. Is there any normal user that actually understands how it works? We're both IT guys but we can't figure it out. Who's to blame there is no Photos icon on my wife's contact for me?
(We Googled, tried, didn't help. Most of the stuff we found were long-winding threads where people also had to jump through hoops to achieve what they wanted, many other of the threads not ending with success.)

Sure they are not young anymore - but at this age this was a beyond incredible performance. There is nothing more to say.

Mám pocit, že táto charakteristika nijako nezostarla. "Deratizér na novinárske krysy." :-)

Why ISO date norms sows fear in hearts of developers? Let's see what week number it is on Jan 1 and Dec 31 of various years (2012 is my personal winner - and yes, norm is good, dates and weeks are simply difficult):
Year 2000 starts with week 52 and ends with week 52
Year 2001 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2002 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2003 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2004 starts with week 1 and ends with week 53
Year 2005 starts with week 53 and ends with week 52
Year 2006 starts with week 52 and ends with week 52
Year 2007 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2008 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2009 starts with week 1 and ends with week 53
Year 2010 starts with week 53 and ends with week 52
Year 2011 starts with week 52 and ends with week 52
Year 2012 starts with week 52 and ends with week 1
Year 2013 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2014 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2015 starts with week 1 and ends with week 53
Year 2016 starts with week 53 and ends with week 52
Year 2017 starts with week 52 and ends with week 52
Year 2018 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2019 starts with week 1 and ends with week 1
Year 2020 starts with week 1 and ends with week 53
That's why, among other things...

I still remember how AWS (Amazon Web Services) re:Invent 2015 conference impressed me. AWS is extremely successful but they keep pushing innovations at us. I played with their smallest EC2 instances couple of times, considering whether or not I want my…

"Good" old Java APIs always full of surprises. On Java 8 I'd use something like LocalDate.of(2014, 1, 1), I needed the same default on Java 7, so I - naturally - used new Date(2014, 1, 1) when the provided date was null. To my surprise my default had much higher millis value... something fishy is going on. One look to the API says: @param year the year minus 1900

Minus 1900? Well, ... there is hardly anything that may explain this reasonably. Sure, it's deprecated. But it will never be gone in the sacred name of compatibility (or other *bility?).
