Lenten Summer's End

What a week!
The first rain in Austin

since Independence Day--
or so the driver said.

And this morning (at 2AM)
below 70

with no hint of Northwest.

I predict cool clarity, soon.

Eclipse 3.2.1 on OSX Might Suck Less Than Netbeans

So I was pleasantly suprised by the Carbon Version of Eclipse 3.2.1. I had heard horror stories of how slow it ran and how unusable it was on OSX, but on my 1.2mb 12" Power G4 and I'd always found Netbeans more intuitive. But this time, I somehow managed to get a hello world to run. Which was not the case the last time I fooled around with Eclipse on a SuSE install. Not that I'm doing a huge amount of Java development, but the LAPSE plugin looked interesting. We'll see if its useful enough to others.
