magic mouse 2 and mighty mouse

Hello,

Yesterday I bought a magic mouse 2 because I had a mighty mouse but the scroll was not functioning anymore...

the new mouse is great, but it is not working anymore on my mousepad... The best I found is the put a sheet of paper white on top of my mousepad. Actually it worked great! and it still feels nice.


Furthermore I repaired my mighty mouse by putting few drop of alcool 70°... amazing isn't it?

Cheers,
Sylvain

Kotlin

Hello,

It is a long time I did not blog.... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! BEST WISHES FOR 2016!

Recently I met Kotlin, a new language running on the JVM.

This new language is just fantastic, I love the extension functions and the not checked exception.

I like Java very much but I found more pleasure with Kotlin.

EDIT: note to JetBrains, please add Kotlin support for JavaFX, and fix the slowness issue with jOOQ, these are the 2 only points holding me to switch completely to kotlin. Actually I have a 3rd point: the try with closable objects, I use for now a kotlin construct "using" that I would prefer to see in the language or in the std lib.

Cheers,
Sylvain
