The other day I mistakenly copied a relative file path into good old Windows Explorer. As soon as I hit paste, I knew it wasn’t going to resolve but needless to say, this result surprised me just a bit.
So, the project name is PAW which apparently has something to do with Bears… I’m not really sure what it means to Build Direct but I’m in favor of Bear Stores.

I had lunch with my friend Dan on Monday (and finally got to a RUM meeting…) and he mentioned that local guru Mike Nygard was on a recent Pragmatic Podcast. As you might expect, I pointed iTunes at the feed and was not disappointed. Mike wrote Release It, a very important book on making sure your code is production ready. Anyway, well worth a listen. Speaking of podcasts, my friends Neal Ford and Andy Glover‘s chat on JRuby et al is up on JavaWorld. Good stuff guys! BTW, Andy, if you’re looking for other people for podcasts, I *cough* know a guy.
Just a heads up that I’ll be speaking at Twin SPIN next week – here are the details. I’ll be giving one of this season’s No Fluff talks. Hope to see you there!

A couple of recent Dilberts really caught my fancy (of course that’s nearly a universal I suppose). I thought this one was funny enough to forward on to my bosses; I’m still employed so they took the joke well!
This one summarizes how most companies define Agile…and their approach to training.
Hey, I don’t think I’ve perpetuated any typos this time
