JBoss as a windows service0

The JBoss Community docs for running JBoss as a Windows service are here.  They are good instructions until you get to these lines:

# Define listening IP - If you have more than one IP or want to indicate to listen on a specific IP aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd

That space between the ‘-b’ and the ‘aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd’ causes problems. It should really be:

Highspeed Internet0

I recently switched from AT&T DSL (~5mb) to Comcast. The best speeds I see are much higher (2.5x) but highly variable (as low a 6mb). But so far I’m very satisfied.

CMM Level 50

Just because an organization is certified as CMM level 5 doesn’t mean their process includes such things as:

  • Object Oriented Design (or much in the way of design at all)
  • JavaDocs (or much in the way of comments)
  • Unit testing
  • Many other things you’d want a software development process to have

Does anybody who isn’t an executive see any value in CMM?

Firefox plugins0

The hardware in my laptop died so now I find myself trying to recreate my system. One of th things I need to recreate is my Firefox plugins. So, this is going to be the list of plugins I always meant to create.


Most of the parts arrived yesterday. The rest should arrive today. The part about shipping I thought was interesting was that while I ordered the parts from two companies the shipments are comming from four states.

Computer Redux0

Ok, I ordered a Lian-Li PC-60B case. This I ordered from

New Computer0

Wahoo!! I ordered the parts for a new computer from today.

  • AMD Athlon X2 4400+
  • ABIT KN8 NF4
  • 300 Gig Seagate hard drive
  • connect3D 3051 Radeon X1600XT 256MB video card
  • 2 gigs of ram
  • Antec 550 watt power supply

Humm, it looks like I forgot the case.

6/29/2008 – The northbridge fan on the motherboard got very noisy so I decided to replace the heastsink assembly. This turned into a major pain (mostly because I don’t have the manuals for anything). ABT has their manuals on line, but Lian-Li does not.
