    Why I Hate….

    Saturday, July 30, 2005 - 23:05 by Mike Milinkovich
    I just read a hilarious presentation from ApacheCon Europe entitled Why I Hate the Apache Web Server. I think that any successful project with some history will have some warts and inconsistencies. I’m sure we have our share. Anyone out there interested in creating a similar presentation for EclipseCon 2006...

    Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics

    Monday, July 11, 2005 - 14:33 by Mike Milinkovich
    This is sort of “better late than never”, but between traveling to JavaOne and our Foundation staff member meeting last week, I missed Kirill Grouchnikov’s blog posting on who fixed what bugs in Eclipse 3.1. With regard to the Eclipse projects, IBM still has over half of the committers working...

    Download Mania

    Thursday, June 30, 2005 - 02:38 by Mike Milinkovich
    As I mentioned in my previous post, Eclipse.org was hammered by a DDOS attack when we posted Eclipse 3.1. You may have noticed that the form of the attack has almost certainly inflated the number of download requests showing in the “Eclipse Download Challenge” counter. So as described in the...

    JavaOne Roundup

    Thursday, June 30, 2005 - 01:38 by Mike Milinkovich
    So I head for SFO in the wee hours of the morning and thought it would be worth jotting down a few thoughts and observations. Here they are in more-or-less random order. Eclipse was very well represented at JavaOne. For example, it was amazing the degree to which Eclipse showed...

    Eclipse.org Running Better

    Wednesday, June 29, 2005 - 14:37 by Mike Milinkovich
    I just info from Denis (Eclipse webmaster) that part of the reason the site was slow was that we were hit by a DDOS attack at the same time the 3.1 release went up. Denis has dealt with that and the site is running better now. Hopefully we can get...

    And the race begins!

    Tuesday, June 28, 2005 - 14:01 by Mike Milinkovich
    Well, Luis beat me to the punch, but Eclipse 3.1 is released and ready to go! We’ve doubled the bandwidth at http://www.eclipse.org, so hopefully the Million Download Challange will make me pay up big time to my favourite charity. I would really like to thank the platform team for all...

    JavaOne Fun

    Monday, June 27, 2005 - 18:45 by Mike Milinkovich
    Well dropping by the Eclipse booth this afternoon really made my day. On the first day of the exhibit hall being open, the interest in the Eclipse Passport and the Eclipse t-shirts has been awesome. When I dropped by there was a line of at least twenty people there waiting...

    Eclipse & RIA

    Tuesday, June 7, 2005 - 23:35 by Mike Milinkovich
    Hot on the heels of my last post comes some very exciting news about the use of Eclipse in the Rich Internet Application (RIA) space. In my last post I talked about how James Governor‘s post on RCP showed that he really understands some of the potential of the Eclipse...

    He Gets It!

    Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - 19:35 by Mike Milinkovich
    It is always great when the Eclipse community works hard on communicating a new and novel idea and then runs into someone who really understands it. James Governor‘s blog post today on RCP is a great example of that. James is focused on the potential for RCP to dramatically change...
