BTW: I just realized that Mary needs to remember to disarm her opponents a bit more often.

If, like me, you didn't really plan ahead and get your solar filter in time for the transit of Venus, this might be helpful:

I ordered mine today from telescopes.com. Hopefully it will arrive on Friday as their web store estimated.

I came across this and got a good laugh.

One of the commenters rightly points out the natural English SVO sentence order which Java attempts to emulate, but fails to note that Java "sentences" have the object of an action performing the action, not the actual subject.

A lot of the factories, manager, other somewhat odd constructs created in the Kingdom of Nouns do seem SVO (factory.create(type), manager.start(thatOtherThing)). I'll admit plenty of frustration where there seems like some methods truly should be first class (java.util.arrays, java.util.collections, anyone?). C# sort of has an answer in those cases. You can create extensions that can be applied to the classes that you're wanting to use the static methods on. It also has lambda. Lovely, lovely lambda.

While I admit that functional languages can be useful, I am not about to agree to a claim that thinking in infinite recursion is more natural that OOP!

Hey, everyone in Colorado!

THIS SATURDAY, come listen to a Lewis scholar talk about Lewis's thoughts on Heaven, Lewis's short story that was recently found, and Lewis's Narnia.

It's free (there will be a donation basket to help pay for the costs of bringing out the published author and professor who is speaking), and there are multiple, different sessions throughout the day. Come for the whole day or for part of it. The schedule is on the event page. If you want to come, please sign up there so we can plan appropriately.

Interesting conversation. Anyone know of an automatically encrypting social network?

Right. GPG would work for that. The size limitation hadn't occurred to me, yet. The funny thing is, I don't much care about any person reading anything I post, but I would prefer it if Google and Facebook couldn't read anything about me. I probably just need a good vacation so I can unwind.

Another cool toy. Be sure to watch the videos.

The author says that the app isn't very precise. From the looks of it, I'd guess it's at least as precise as the acoustic sleds that we used in physics back at Purdue.
