Second-Rate Roses · It was bright today, very bright, and I did a Nasturtium follow-up but spent time too with some journeyman roses ...
 
Sunbeams, Trash Talk Edition · Yow, DME <a href='http://www.dme.org/log/2004/06/21/planet-sun-statistics'>cranked up the numbers</a> at Planet Sun, so I got kind of buried when I went by there this morning; he’s got some interesting stats. Let’s open with a <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/mike_webb/20040620#fair_balanced_and_blogging'>nasty political joke</a> (the best kind). New today, a couple of Javaphone geeks speak up: <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/jsolof/20040619#java_inside_and_outside_your'>Jeff Solof on the ultracoolness of Voice Connect</a> and <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/hinkmond/20040618#j2me_wireless_snitching_the_next'>Hinkmond Wong on wireless snitching</a>. For a side trip into philosophy, <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/MortazaviBlog/20040618#hype_about_hyperlink'>M. Mortazavi</a> talks up Dreyfus’ <cite>On the Internet</cite> and makes it sound like a must-read. Finally, I hate it when life online veers into nastiness about personalities and politics and that kind of stuff, but hey, engineers are competitive, and I have no problem with a little my-tech-is-better-than-yours; so in this corner we have <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/eschrock/20040620#my_kingdom_for_a_crash'>Eric Schrock seriously dissing Linux troubleshooting capabilities</a>. I’m <strong>sure</strong> there’ll be someone in the other corner before too long.
