Saved By The Tickler

A few days ago, Sun has rolled out a new version of their Developer Forums. Since then, using these forums has turned into a nightmare:

  • All my watches are regularly lost, preventing me to follow-up with people asking questions, effectively killing the main value these forums are supposed to offer.
  • The new text editor mangles any text input that is anything else than plain text: copying/pasting from any source ends up with the addition of funky tags that appear only when you save (or preview) your post.
Congratulations Sun! You have successfully killed the last useful Java resource you still had under control.

Oh, maybe not, there is still the fancy JAVA Nasdaq ticker...
