A new BlueJ release

I was just reading on James Gosling's blog that the BlueJ project recently released a new version of their development environment. I first learned about this teaching environment several years ago, and it has always struck me as interesting. That being said, their book is very expensive, and if you're looking for an excellent, free Java programming book, look around for Bruce Eckel's Java book(s).

Massive floods in Wasilla, Alaska (many years ago)

Here's a great article about a part of Alaska that was inundated by huge floods ways back in the day.

Here's a brief excerpt from the article:
The event was one of at least four "megafloods" as Glacial Lake Atna breached ice dams and discharged water. The lake covered more than 3,500 square miles in the Copper River Basin northeast of Anchorage and Wasilla.
You can see this on Google Maps by searching for Wasilla, Alaska, and then switching to the "terrain" view.

Chasin Cars (Sarah Bettens, acoustic)

Geez, this acoustic performance of Chasin Cars, by Sarah Bettens just blows me away. I just wish it didn't make me so sad. Just an amazing performance though.

How to delete multiple iPhone photos

Here's a simple little post that shows why I love the internet 98% of the time: How to delete multiple iPhone photos at one time. Straight to the chase "Here's how you do something", in this case, deleting multiple iPhone photos at one time.

Of course it doesn't hurt that I know the guy that wrote it, but still, it's good stuff ... especially when you really do need to know how to delete multiple iPhone photos.

Can man live on PBJ sandwiches?

Question of the day: Can man live on PBJ (peanut butter and jelly) sandwiches?

For weeks I've had no desire to eat anything else for lunch, and after making another one just now, I have to wonder if this is good for me?

Well, time will tell.
