effective java

recently i've put my scala sessions aside for a while, because i've had the chance to get the second editition of 'Effective Java' by Josh Bloch into my hands. Although i had read the first edition, the second edition struck me again. it contains some of the items already in the first edition, but also many (about 20 or so) new items, some of them regarding especially the new features of Java 5 and 6.

this book is still great.

won an eclipse t-shirt

for its latest release (ganymede) the eclipse foundation started a contest. they gave away eclipse t-shirts for the first reviews of the new release and i've won one for my post in this blog.

thanks to eclipse. this is my first developer t-shirt.
