Why I Rejected a LinkedIn-Originated Offer of 10 Million Euros
LinkedIn is a popular social network for connecting professionals, and I have
an account there. Every day I get an invite to connect with someone.
Typically I ignore these invites unless I know the person. But I’ve never
received invites to connect from a chair of board of directors of a bank.
Till yesterday. So I’ve accepted the invite.
Then I’ve received an LinkedIn email from this woman stating that she had
a business proposition for me, and if I was interested, she was ready to
explain. She also provided her email that ended in outlook.com. I checked her
LinkedIn profile again. Looked legit. She even had a Twitter account with
recent tweets in two languages.
I responded that I was ready to hear about this business proposition. Next

Pushing Data to Multiple WebSocket Clients From a Java Server
Finished writing the WebSocket chapter for the second edition of my Java 24
Hour Trainer. In this blog I’ll show you one of the code samples from
Pretty often you need to write a program that publishes the same message to
all connected clients. For example, multiple clients of the online auctions
have to be notified when a new bid is placed on the product. Another example
is when a new stock price quote need to be pushed from the server to all
connected clients. With websockets it’s a pretty easy task.
Recently I wrote a blog showing how to use the WebSocket protocol to push the
same code on the server, but the client will be written in Dart. For this
example I was using GlassFish 4.1 server, and IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 with
installed Dart plugin. I also have Dart 1.9.1 SDK. My goal was to create one
Web application deployable module that would contain both Java and Dart code.
I’ll be brief assuming the the reader has some familiarity with IntelliJ
IDEA IDE and the structure of Dart projects. Repeating the same e... (more)
I’m wondering if these developers do this on purpose or they are just
random people in our profession? I was trying to sign up at this Web site.
Had to enter my email and pick a password, which I did. Nobody warned me that
the password had to be 8 characters until I pressed the submit button. Then
the new window popped up:
Just take a look and try to recreate the line of thinking of the developer of
this piece of art:
“I need to let the user enter the password that’s at least 8 characters
long. So I’ll hide in the bushes and will quietly wait till the user will
make a mistake ... (more)
