You bloggers and web devs out there...you'll get a kick out of this one. You know how you just pop over to your site or weblog on a whim to see how it looks, and you feel like it roughly communicates that you are either really slack or that you probably wear white socks with your sandals? (I used to do the white socks with sandals thing regularly, but my wife put a stop to that. I never knew how many people were bugged by that.)
Until I checked my email this afternoon. Kathy Sierra had sent me an email. She had read my reply in the long thread that followed her blog post titled "What's so bad about making it easier to learn Java?". Shen then apparently followed the link in the post to my weblog and my site, and took the time to fill out a very nice message on the garish "Contact Us" link on my All Things Computed site.
Procrastination can really bite you in the fanny. Embarrassment over the site's condition and the lack of recent blog posts aside, it was a pretty killer day for me, getting a message from Kathy. I am still thoroughly enjoying the Head First Java book, and I should post an update on my experience with it soon.
