[ #15848 ]

Yesterday was java and XML day. Almost nothing of interest to me. One of the problems is that all the talks are so low-level. One thing I wanted to know about was setting up JSP, PHP, and CGI on a single apache process, easily. That's too high-level, even just learning about JSP is too high-level. I think another problem is that all the sessions are a single hour. There's not much to discuss in an hour, save low-level stuff. One of the talks I found interesting was on shoe-horning Apache onto a small system. It appears that the tricks are the same as performance tuning for a huge website.

My mid-evening was spent watching the Pittsburgh Steelers suck. In the evening I found some interpreted language minded people to hang out with. It was interesting to note that we were the loudest group at the hotel's pub. Even after a night of drinking, the Java/ASF members were still talking about code, it was a sight. I'm glad to have had an evening conversation that was not completely based on code, if only a little. My rambunctious cohorts were Dave from Yahoo!, Jamie the LEGO buff, and later Nat and Rael.
