Key Repeat Problem... Seven Hours Later

There is this one particular aspect of the Java VM that Sun didn't feel like addressing: Linux handles key repeats (when you hold a key down) differently than Mac OS and Windows.

So, as a result, there are a good known two dozen people, including myself, who have had to bang our heads on our desks for hours to figure out a fix. After seven hours, I managed to get it working after having to chase bugs around. Hopefully they are all gone.

Maybe I could have done this faster, but I was watching the first Matrix movies. Would have watched the third, but I couldn't find it.

Resume For Job

I just updated my Monster Jobs resume. Granted Boston looks much better in terms of software developer job opportunities; the number of entry level seeking and valid jobs is dismal, where ever I look.

Vanilla Soy Slimfast

Recently I decided to switch my Slimfast shake to contain soy milk rather than cow's milk. I like the taste of Slimfast, milk, and soy milk, but this mix doesn't taste much better than the crazy GNC Slimfast equivalent. Aldies only had vanilla soy milk. I don't really like chocolate or vanilla soy however. The make things worse, it has more fat in it than my skim milk. I can't say I have much reason to go to Aldies really.
