It has already been a year since we generate a lot of our electricity on our roof. Starting in October 2005 we got our new meter. So this years October bill was the time when PG&E did the true-up over the year. We did not have to pay for any used electricity;-) We only payed… Read More »

If you have read a couple of my posts here, you might have realized that I’m not only interested in Java Studio Creator. Sometimes I also look out of my window;-) So I was thinking if I should add a link to a film, which I find very important. So far I staid out of… Read More »

Late JavaOne impressions

By | May 25, 2006

Last week was a lot of fun;-) JavaOne time. But at the end of it, I was very tired. Everything started with the NetBeans Day on Monday. Or better with the registration to it. Seeing all those people standing in line to listen to what’s new and coming in NB was quite a sight. I… Read More »

By | May 14, 2006

I’m toying with a Planet Java Studio Creator site idea. So far I’ve my first attempt but I would like to know if other people find this useful and what they would like to see there. The CSS is still completely messed up but look at planetjscreator and let me know if that would be… Read More »
