I f you want an IM client with good synchronization across devices (Windows, OSX, iOS, BB and Android) take a look at Trillian. My favorite thing about it is that it does a good job of working out what device I'm currently using so that my phone doesn't go off next to me all the time when I'm using it on my PC or Mac.
I'll confess to being a bit of a fanboy for this client but I would welcome a more articulate and objective view if anyone has one.
I love this, mainly because I hit the same hitch in my code for a minute yesterday. The Java calendar makes the months 0(zero) indexed. That means if you try and work with the months 1-12 you go from Feb - Nov and the 12 gets rolled forward to Jan the next year.
Lessons of the week: Always check the documentation and always test edge cases.
Rockets vs Electric
I think one of the problems with Electric vehicles is that battery tech isn't keeping up with what's being asked for it, finding stuff to explode in a rocket is pretty easy. Of course that's just looking at fuel sources.
I think there needs to be a paradigm shift in the way people design and think of electric vehicles the same way SpaceX is doing for space flight.
