Well, I’m back. I only have one new years resolution, but I’m not telling anyone what it is – at least not via this blog. I had a good Christmas and New Years, and have already started getting depressed at the thought of going back to work. Such is life. Presents included Bill Bryson’s “Dictionary of Troublesome Words(Amazon.co.uk – Dictionary of troublesome words by Bill Bryson)”:http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0767910427/qid=1073234850/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_3_1/026-0302931-1126870, Ryan Adams Album “Rock N Roll(Amazon.co.uk – Rock N Roll by Ryan Adams)”:http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000PCUHQ/ref=sr_aps_music_1_1/026-0302931-1126870 (seeing him again in a couple of months), and some nice crockery for eating my takeaways off. I also decided to buy an iBook, then looked at my bank balance, and realised that I’d be better off buying an etch-a-sketch. On a Java-related note, my article on IoC, Spring and PicoContainer is going well – the prose is finished, it only remains to write the actual code. Expect more on this soon.
