Again I have not written much here for a while. I guess the most significant thing that happening now is that the company I'm working for is failing (it was a startup). I'm still employed as part of a core tech team, but it's not clear how long this will go on.

It's too bad, as we went live with an actual customer in the beginning of June. I thought we did a pretty good job, from nothing to production in about 9 months - with 5 developers.

Other than that my son started to learn Java. I showed him how to compile and edit under Linux and he wrote several applets. Mostly they were copied from a book, but he fiddled with them.

One of these when started displays a question: "Will I dream?" and has two buttons "yes" and "no".
