Is the Java Resurrection sponsored by Sun Microsystems?

Dave Pawlak's Pompous Ponderings include these curiosities.

Who spiked the eggnog at HMS Blog?

Matt Watkins actually puts the psychotherapist to shame in this post.


It is obvious to me (from the blog "Yes Mark,) that Greg either has no clients or just gives blanket advise
without even bothering to listen to your problem. Not that I am taking sides, because I don't think Mark
has a job either! Emily has an excuse she's a grad student, we all know they have too much time on their hands."

Roulette Rip Off?

Did "three days of gambling and drinking" affect the memory or math ability of Joshua Mercer?

"... take a $5 token ... and quickly place the coin covering the green zero-double zero space."
[Editor's Note: Yes, "covering" ought be something like "so it covers", but the bet itself is of more interest.]

"... that wondrous little white wonder plunks unto the double zero for an $80 gain."
[Editor's Note: I would have used "onto" rather than "unto", but ...]

Since a split bet pays 17 to 1, the gain should have been $85.
