Comment Java Community (Score 1) 87 87

Do you think Java would have such widespread use if it weren't for the community projects? Java as a language hasn't changed much and the real innovation is coming from community projects like Groovy and Scala. C#'s language specification has changed and they're adding more features. Java's language is more stagnant. Would you change that?

This, plus: Take a good, hard look at yourself from the employer's viewpoint. Is your resume 10 pages long, etc? Are you networking? Do you have a good LinkedIn profile? Linkedin is how recruiting is done now. Being self-taught only makes a difference if you let it.

An anonymous reader writes: From the I-wish-this-was-an-April-fools-joke department, the Jabba's Lego palace is getting discontinued because it resembles a mosque.

I started using a standing desk a year ago and I won't go back. I bought this desk http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001MS70Z2/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00. See my review for caveats because the keyboard tray isn't wide enough for mouse and keyboard. Yes, the standing will make your knees sore. I bought this mat and it does help http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EFK9KM/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00. I feel much better in general. My back pain went away and I feel much healthier in general.
