Happy Programmers' Day 2011

Happy Programmers' Day 2011
   I almost forgot that today is the 256th day of the year which means that it is Programmers' Day. Happy holiday to everyone cranking code!

   I almost forgot because of all the excitement around BUILD. Be sure not to miss the live stream tonight (it should appear on the site) and learn about the future of Windows. A nice day for a big dev conference. Good job Microsoft!

The Curious Case of Internet Explorer 6 in South Korea

The Curious Case of Internet Explorer 6 in South Korea
   As a devoted StarCraft fan I happen to know a bit more about South Korea than the regular European. One of the things I know is that it is very high-tech country.

How come this tech savvy nation ends up with such a big usage share of this outdated browser?

Java's String Class Contains Something Utterly Evil

   Before I unveil the atrocities of the String class in Java we are going to do a simple test. In order to get the most accurate results from the test you should try to do it as if it was a normal task at work. By the very fact that you know this is a test you will probably not do it like it is a normal task at work but at least try not to read the source code of the Java methods you are going to call. So here is the task – Write a method that given a string replaces all the occurrences of the substring "…" with the string ",,,". For example given the input " a.,...b...c." the method should return "a.,,,,b,,,c."...
