Rainy days and Java always get me down


I've Moved My Blog

I should say "I'm moving my blog." It's a pretty painful process.

Pebble has blown up on me, and it's been many months since I've been able to blog reliably. I've lost posts. And now I've got to figure out how to migrate my past blog posts from Pebble to my new destination without all the URLs changing, lest external links become 404 Not Founds.

Why does everything in the 21st century have to be a three-day project???

I have been looking for something for the past four or so years, and it turns out it was Tapestry! What's odd is that I first looked at Tapestry about sixteen months ago, but I had apparently not suffered enough at the time to recognize the relief that it offered.

Interestingly, Tapestry smells a lot like Spring (without the allergies). It's a dependency-injecting, aspect-oriented, proxy-building, clean and intuitive way to approach the web layer. It's the first web technology that has really felt right.

I'm feeling less JCranky! I think I might even be having fun again, although I can't really remember what that feels like.
