It's the little things...

Server of the beast!

I realised last week that if I didn't get cracking, the day's going to come when I'll have spent an entire year with Windows XP as my home OS. Can't have that, what would all the cool kids say, so I decided enough is enough and I'm making a concerted effort to boot into Linux and stay there. The problem was that after shutting down my beloved Gentoo box last year and moving over here, it took so damned long to get everything set up in Windows on the new laptop, that I'm loath to have to start all over again in Linux. I can copy and paste a lot of config stuff from Windows and old Gentoo backups, but there's still a lot of schlep involved. But it had to be done. Frustrations aside, it's nice to be back.

Anyway, the change-over is also chance to do some housekeeping. Tomcat 6 got released a few months ago, so it's upgrade time. It implements the Servlet 2.5 and JSP 2.1 specs. Guess I should read the what's new articles (servlet, jsp).

... and I still haven't had a good look at what's new in Java 6.
