Comment: Use an emulator (Score 1) 261 261

You should use an emulator like Qemu, or maybe Bochs. Then you're completely isolated from any hardware compatibility problems (virtualizers run directly on the physical cpu and thus can introduce incompatibilities when an image installed using one cpu is booted on another). Or if you only have short term projects (they don't need to save their data), then use the ttylinux or dsl linux demos in JPC at: http://javapc.sourceforge.net/demos_linuxdemos.html

There are several very important books: 1. Effective Java - Joshua Bloch. This is by far the most important one. 2. Java, Concurrency in practice - Goetz 3. The art of multiprocessor programming - Herlihy and Shavit. This is much more theory oriented, but essential to become an excellent multithreaded programmer. 4. Java Puzzlers - Joshua Bloch and Neal Gafter. This is quite a fun book - lots of Java Conundrums Enjoy!

The latest JPC, the fast 100% java x86 PC emulator, is now available online at http://www-jpc.physics.ox.ac.uk with online demos and downloads. JPC is open source and is the most secure way of running x86 software ever — 2 layers (applet sandbox, JPC sandbox) of independently validated security make it the world's most secure means of isolating x86 software.

NIH Spends $400K To Figure Out Why Men Don't Like Condoms 844 844

The National Institutes of Health has given $423,500 to researchers at Indiana University's Kinsey Institute to figure out why men don't like to wear condoms. The institute will also study why men have trouble using condoms and investigate "penile erection and sensitivity during condom application." "The project aims to understand the relationship between condom application and loss of erections and decreased sensation, including the role of condom skills and performance anxiety, and to find new ways to improve condom use among those who experience such problems," reads the abstract from Drs. Erick Janssen and Stephanie Sanders, both of the Kinsey Institute.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
