Off topic it is, but I'm the OP and I got it off topic so you're fine ;-).

Thanks for letting know about the Portland, OR JUG. I will have to check it
out. I becoming more interested in Java and sad to say a little less in RPG.

Sort of off topic, like the title now ;-) But I'm on lots of mailing

JUG
list is on my top five for activity and usefulness. And one of only two
I've found that Sun employees regularly contribute to.

No problem. I rather enjoyed it too and that was a great line!

Yeah, he told he on Twitter he didn't hate Java. I've only used Perl a few
times about 8 years ago.
Quote from Twitter:
"I don't *hate* java, I just think it's a huge waste of good resources,
like
Windows. :) Better to choose more efficient paths."

Looks like Paul Graham has a bunch of essays, I'll have to start to read
some of them.

It amazes me how many "high-profile" (term used loosely :)) programmers
there are here in Oregon. Kent Beck is in southern Oregon, Randal Shwartz
and Linus Torvalds here in Portland and Joshua Marinacci (Sun JavaFX guru)
in the Eugene area.

Thanks. I loved the line "Before we go to that meeting, let me Beck
that code"...

I don't think that Randal Schwartz is a Java Hater as such, he's just
spoiled from too much Perl :)

I also like Paul Graham who was mentioned on the podcast - his essay on
how their usage of Lisp made their startup company stand out from the
rest is brilliant reading.
