Quotes of the week

When you build software in Java and the JVM, you are being locked into only running it on a platform controlled by a single company - Oracle. Oracle is working to maintain this platform control, by refusing to remove the field of use clauses in the TCK, effectively preventing Apache Harmony from ever being able to ship a real release. The lawsuit against Google also confirms Oracle belief about using their control of the platform aggressively.

U+1F46C 👬 TWO MEN HOLDING HANDS and
U+1F46D 👭 TWO WOMEN HOLDING HANDS

Please pull the changes below, I've forgotten about them for too long now. They've been in my tree long enough to develop a full colour, an exquisite bouquet and a nutty, slightly cheddary flavour. It's just too good, I can't hold that back from anyone. Best enjoyed with crack(ers), because clearly anyone who tackles grab code needs that anyway.
