I recently was convinced that I need to look into Node.js to build simple webapps or tools, the sort of thing a programmer in a library is asked to do pretty much every day of the week. Yesterday, my friend Kevin Clarke from UCLA reminded me that he had mentioned Vert.x in the past, and that it is “like Node.js for Java.” He’s right. I do think Vert.x is at the top of my “things to play with more” stack. Thanks, Kevin!


I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to realize this was happening, but today I needed to copy some files from one server to another, and I realized I was tab-completing paths on the remote server. Which shouldn’t be possible, and yet, there it was. MAGIC! Thanks, .bash_completion file.
