Friday fun: Pie and Performance

If you're in need of a fun way to
get to grips with JavaFX, then
take a look at this oddly diverting extra-sensory
game-cum-viral-thingy. The
Janitor isn't cool enough to really understand
yet, but you need to write
JavaFX code and wear cool t-shirts and figure out stuff.

And just for fun, check out who's got the bragging rights for JVM
performance on multi-core servers with Intel's
Nehalem chip: is it IBM's
J9 or Sun's
HotSpot and the $500
riding who has the best open source credentials.

Another kind of mockery that lives in
fable is speed mocking predictability: here's an interesting
interview on the Java
Real Time System.
