    java.net (where you get jdk 1.7, truezip etc) has been ill the last
    few days. Today Oracle did a very odd thing. They PERMANENTLY
    redirected every page on java.net to oracle.com/index.html

    I think this was just a mindless mistake. Beware if you have code
    that automatically makes corrections to your HTML for permanent
    redirects.

    One of the curses of the computer age is manufacturers now design
    home appliances to die on the very day the warranty expires.
    It is deliberate waste in the service of mindless profit.
