Hidden gem

Having been using fink for at least three years, I'm surprised it's taken me this long to discover the 'applesystemfonts' package, which lets you use the, um, Apple system fonts under X.  But I'm glad I did, as it's no longer "Times New Roman or nowt" in Scribus :-)

Irritating annoying irritationnoyance of the day

WebObjects generated components use a style like this:
    public Main(WOContext context) {
        super(context);
    }

But if you add a key using WOBuilder, then its accessors use the following style:
    public String username()
    {
        return username;
    }

Mmm...you can almost smell the consistency.
