The trailer for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked a week earlier than anticipated (Marvel swiftly blamed Hydra) and it looks spectacular.
The use of ‘there’s no strings on me” from Pinocchio as the background music, in the context of a murderous Artificial Intelligence (with James Spader’s voice!) is just creepy in the most awesome way.
This might have happened an while ago, but I don’t install the JRE very often and may have overlooked it. The installer for Oracle’s Java Runtime Environment now fully uninstalls outdated and insecure versions. Java security flaws are discovered with concerning frequency. In the past, even updating to the newest version could leave your computer vulnerable as obsolete versions were often left behind.
It was this very problem that led (the now defunct) RaProducts to create JavaRa. Now that Oracle has taken responsibility for this problem, JavaRa has become largely purposeless. As the current owner of JavaRa, this is unpleasant news.
Coda is my preferred editor for web development, but unfortunately it’s only available for Mac OS X. When I’m on Windows, I usually use Brackets (or MetroTextual, if it’s something simple) for all my web document needs.
The latest version added the ability to open two different documents and work on them side-by-side. I’m finding it especially useful for editing CSS files without having to switch between tabs.
Brackets is free and open source, so give it a go if you’re a developer looking for a sweet new editor.
