Configuring logging for Clojure applications


> Clojure logging neatly solves the problems of Java logging.
>> First, there’s a single API to use: clojure.tools.logging. Thank Alex Taggart and others for this. Second, it integrates with all the important logging frameworks: log4j, java.util.logging, Apache’s commons-logging and now slf4j. Finally, it side-steps many of the performance penalties associated with logging.

TidBITS: Video Viewing in Lion Freezes New iMacs


> Viewing videos of any kind on new iMacs, both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch models, can cause freezes. This doesn’t happen every time one views a video, and only happens after an iMac has been put to sleep at least once. These videos can be Flash, H.264, or QuickTime formats, and viewing may occur in Safari, Firefox, QuickTime Player, iTunes or any other program.

Software Patents

Martin Fowler writes:


In theory, I'm not against software patents if we were able to get back to the core beneficial principles of patents and apply them properly. This would imply developing a process that would ensure that patents were only granted for truly novel ideas. But unless such a process were properly put together, I'd rather see software patents eliminated completely. A world without software patents would be better than the mess we're currently in.
