It was time to finally install Windows 7. Released To Manufacturing version. I must admit, I was quite skeptical about this because it seems that I have been cursed in my youth and Microsoft products simply fail with me. No, seriously, I have had so many issues with Windows that even Chuck Norris can’t count all of them, and he counted to infinity, twice. I do hope that you are not affected by the same curse.
So why Windows 7 if nothing works for me like it should? Windows 7 was, and still is praised by a lot of fans. It is even praised by some people that are not, you know, typical fan-boys. I wanted to see what this praise was all about and what is so great on Windows 7. I already had Release Candidate 1 downloaded but I decided to obtain Ready To Manufacture version, they said that it is the shit.
Zo … Zince Brüno ist ein fabulaisich man he is also … wait for it … *shocking faces* … a gay, somewhat in fashion, wannabe celebrity. He is also Austrian. Austria is a small mountain like European country north of Slovenian mountain ridge. You all know where that is right? If you don’t then Google it. Now!
Anyway Sacha Baron Choen which was accidentally also Borat has transformed into this fashion god called Brüno. Always looking to be in the center of attention. Until the fashion accident which transforms him into rear entering still want to be famous, gay guy. Friends leave him, only his faithful dog Lutz played by Gustaf Hammarsten, escorts him as his ass-istent to the Los Angeles. And the rollercoaster of gayness begins …
I can’t say that movie is CRAP. Because it is not. I also can’t say that the movie should be XXX rated. Because it is not. In weird way it is FUNNY. If you are open minded than you will laugh your ass off. But the movie struck me as superficial. The problems of the gay movement can be better explained with a well thought drama.
That is why I will rate it 4 out of 10.
I would not recommend it for minors, due to some penile scenes , some violent sex and just plain dumb shooting. Anyway movie is R rated so watch the trailer and decide if it’s for you. If embedding does not work look for it on youtube.
Today we will take a look at the abstract factory design pattern. This design pattern continues the series of creational patterns.
In previous article we have talked about factory pattern. We have learned that factory pattern deals with creation of other objects. Now we will extend that knowledge with the abstract factory pattern which provides a way to group together or rather encapsulate a group of individual factories that create objects with common theme.
Normally we would code a client software to create a concrete implementation of the abstract factory and then use generic interfaces to create concrete objects that are tuned to specific theme but, the client does not know about which concrete object will it get from each of the internal factories since it uses generic interfaces of the factory product in question. Details of the implementation of concrete objects are hidden by the internal factories.
Like many Java developers I had to take a look at Eclipse Galileo. My interest lie in how fast I can migrate from Eclipse Europa to new Galileo version.
Installation was as simple as in previous version. Extract an archive file to a directory. Simple eh ? Let’s see what will be broken. Upon first start Galileo tries to move my default workspace. Well I choose my old workspace and by some magic it was opened without problems. Or did it? Recompilation and reformatting took about a minute or two. After that everything worked smoothly. Almost everything. Project team collaboration vanished.
“GULP”, was my first reaction. CVS support is included, but who really uses CVS nowadays? So I found out that setting up SVN in Eclipse Galileo was not as simple as I thought it to be.
Help->Install New Software
Choose to work with Galileo – http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo
Choose Subversive SVN Team Provider (Incubation)
I employ you to restart Eclipse and don’t use any plugin at this point since they will not work and you will get a message which is similar to this: 0x0040010b: Obtain Project Name’ operation finished with error: Selected SVN connector library is not available or cannot be loaded …’. Instead you rather install a connector library.

I used: http://www.polarion.org/projects/subversive/download/eclipse/2.0/update-site/ , but you can probably use any other that has SVNKit or JavaHL connector
