A japanese archiving tool

One free archiving tool that I've used before is Lhaplus (Japanese site). There are quite a few free tools that I've used and they all seem to be quite good. The only difference seems to be in usability.

extreme programming, kind of

My current project is giving me a pseudo extreme programming experience, as I spend a lot of time with a colleague trying to figure problems out and debug stuff on the fly. It's partially out of necessity as the colleague doesn't speak Japanese and most of the team doesn't speak that much English. I should read up on extreme programming points and try to apply them.

an article on unicode

While doing some research on unicode and Java, I ran across a reference to this article on basics. The opening is quite funny, so I'm looking forward to reading it.

practice test take 1

I got about 72% on my first practice test for SCJP Java 1.4. Had about 44 minutes left over. Not bad, but can do better. The actual test will probably be more difficult so I'd like more than a 20% buffer.
