Aaaaaaaaaaaaand Cut! The Cake.

Topics:   Java Blog

It was cake-cutting time again at the Java Post Production office yesterday, as we wished a happy birthday to our talented animators, Kevin and Tomás. Their birth dates are just a few days apart so we decided to kill two birds with one stone...or, in this case, eat two cakes with one fork...by celebrating both of them at the same time. Twice the cake, twice the fun! (Lemon glaze and Black…

Never be late for a Java Post staff meeting!

Topics:   Java Blog

This past Wednesday, our editor/website/Twitter guy, Doug, was late for a staff meeting.
