Jsh/eLance/TV Premieres

Obviously, we have all listened to every opinion on Earth at this point. We have heard hundreds from people on TV and the radio, your spouse, your children, everybody has an opinion about what happened. Here is mine. It doesn’t concern the people killed and hurt or terrorists or anything else like that, it’s about moving forward. This is day one, right here, right now, today…
Start over with a renewed energy and fight to be a better you than you have ever been you before. Make everybody you know stand up and say, “Wow! You seem improved somehow.” Lose weight, build something, give blood, return your library books on time, it doesn’t matter… Just improve yourself and make your life and those around you better. That’s my opinion about how to react to this.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program:
Jsh is a Java shell that runs multiple Java applications from the same Java Virtual Machine. Jsh is capable of running conventional Java applications and JNLP launched ones as well. Version 1.0 release candidate 2 came out today.
This precisely sums up my experiences with eLance. It is an utter waste of time as it stands now, I’m just glad I only wasted time learning that earlier and I didn’t have to pay for a membership. I don’t know that I agree with the author’s suggestion that people posting projects put up a $200 deposit but clearly there would have to be some drastic changes to make the site appeal to me.
TV premieres I actually care about:

  • Junkyard Wars – September 12th
  • Enterprise (New Star Trek series) – September 26th
  • Smallville (Let’s hope it’s not Superboy meets Party Of Five) – October 16th
  • The Tick (Very funny comic book comes to prime time) – November 1st
  • X-Files – November 4th
  • Justice League (Animated series from the people who did the incredible Batman and Superman series of the last few years) – November 17th
