Ganymede this week: got support added into the Ganymede launcher for Sun's Java Web Start which is the sweetest new thing I've seen for Java in quite some time. Ganymede users at the lab who are running on Windows can now launch the Ganymede client outside of the browser. Much faster, much fewer resources needed. Almost like a real Windows application. UNIX users have had a command line launcher for it forever, but now my Windows users can join in the fun without my having to hack together messy .BAT files and stuff. Highly recommended. Ganymede in general is getting a really polished feel to it now.

Personal: The plan for the day is to get out and get a hair cut, get my car inspected, and go to the Bikram Yoga studio here in town. Bikram Yoga is the hot yoga, where you do 90 minutes of relatively gentle stretching poses in a 103 degree studio. Lots of sweat, lots and lots of stretching, as the heat loosens the muscles up. If you've read about people having estatic experiences in sweat lodges, that's kind of close to what it's like in Bikram.
