I get a badge so I can enter a client’s secure facility. As an employee walks me over to test it, we notice the main door is propped open with a dead-bolt. He closes the dead-bolt and shuts the door so we can test my new badge. After the door successfully opens and we walk in, he opens the dead-bolt so the door stays partially open. “Better let whoever left it like that back in.”

    I have a question, off of this topic, but I don’t know how else to contact you.

    Will the code for your JavaOne “Being Productive in Swing” presentation be available, or can I get it from you? I am reviewing some of the slides and would like to see the code behind the “Demo” pages.

    Thanks in advance.
