In my Freebird! blog I got several requests for information/examples on writing time-based Java code. I've finally written an article and posted a source code project on this topic. The code builds upon the existing timing facilities in Java and adds some interesting higher-level functionality. The article explains how it all works. Check them out and let me know what you think.
Another short dereference blog, in a series of short dereference blogs. This one's a pointer to the upcoming chat with Scott Violet and myself on Getting High Performance from Your Desktop Client.
The main message here is to log on to the chat site Tuesday, February 15th, at 11 am PST and send us some questions. The more people, the better the questions, the better the chat.
