I recently added my comments to a discussion on LinkedIn about advice for those Christians currently in a place of wilderness (I’ll talk more about what I mean by “wilderness” in a bit). I’ve been asked to elaborate on what I originally posted and I have chosen to do so here.
This is a technical post.
I’ve recently been looking at how XML serialization is performed in JAXB 2.0 and immediately realised that I’d find it useful to have a cross-reference of .NET XmlSerializer attributes and JAXB annotations. I hope you find it useful too.
What do you think? Is marriage purely a private matter or does is there a wider social responsibility and concern? I’d like to hear what you think.
In the last few years there have been massive improvements in machine-translation software. The promise of replacing interpreters and translators with machines is held out as a real possibility in businesses and institutions. Is it just hype or is it on the horizon?
Many low-end and middle-end web CMS providers profess (indeed stress) scalability and extensibility but in my experience the architectures of those systems are fundamentally flawed in achieving these aims. What are your thoughts?

If you are like me, then you quickly get tired of creating classes that just represent a DTO when the XML schema would be easier to use. Here’s a trick to help you if you don’t have add-ins to do the job for you.
Here’s the question that bugs me:

I don’t want to simplify things too much here. I personally have seen someone die from cancer while several of us were praying for her healing, confident of God’s intervention. I don’t know the answer to the question “why”. There are those close to me whom I’d love to see physically healed. Equally, there are those I’d love to see set free from various afflictions. “Why” is a very big and difficult question.
What does hope mean to you? This is something I’ve been thinking about and would love your comments.
This is a technical post and is probably worth skipping if you don’t have a background in IT.
The HTTP protocol is moderately efficient at single transmissions that it was originally designed for, such as the HTTP GET requests that are used to retrieve a web pages HTML source. However, this moderate efficiency is signficiantly reduced by the actual behaviour and semantics of website content and browsers. Continue reading
