Here’s a map that shows every tracklog I recorded this year, driving and hiking around Washington State (mostly).
Google Docs recently added support for uploading arbitrary files (up to 250MB large). Can this be used to host Java applets?
Here are my take-away notes from the first day of the Google Testing and Automation Conference.
Spent this weekend at the Spring 2008 Pacific Northwest Software Symposium. Here are my notes (trimmed down to whatever I felt was new & noteworthy to me) and some general comments about the event.
I recently needed to add support for extracting data from Excel files (which are still ubiquitous in labs) to a Java application.

- How much does doubling the available memory improve performance?
- Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the fastest JVM of them all?

The main responsibilities of this position will be the further development of the UniProt web site and the UniProt RDF distribution.
