Strictly speaking this is not a Java blog but most of the issues I talk about do effect Java developers.
It also seems that in listing this blog at number 55 (yeah, still room for improvement!) the ProgramCreek.com team have set up a little competition between me and my #NoProjects conspiracist Steve Smith who is just two places behind me :)
