Urgh, I got email from the Java One people informing me of my (lousy, oh well) spot on the schedule. I got more email telling me that the $200 early-bird discount ends this Friday. I got more email, a polite query: “Where are your slides?” Argh, the work is far from done and the conference feels like tomorrow and I have many days of meetings between now and then. Pardon me if I’m a little jittery and start at sudden noises for the next few weeks. On the upside, the JRuby people will be speaking, and there’s going to be a dynamic-languages BOF. And there’s going to be another NetBeans day; I’m not on that agenda, thank goodness, so I can just go and hang out.
