Aid for Java Victims

Over dinner, I glanced at the cover of the latest Dr. Dobb's (a new article on Ruby on Rails), then switched to BBC World News. The first Beeb headline was Aid flow begins for Java victims.

I guess I was a little distracted from dinner preparations ... my first thought was "Are they going to give them all copies of Ruby and Rails?"

Then, of course, I remembered the earthquake. Oh, right, those Java victims!

(Not to make light of the situation there, which sounds grim. And just as I was writing this, I got email from the USGS Earthquake Notification Service reporting another aftershock in Indonesia, this one magnitude 5.6. I hope it doesn't make matters worse.)
