Information roadmap for WebSphere Message Broker

I’ve just come across an excellent resource for WMB – the developerWorks Information Roadmap. I don’t know how I’ve never seen this before. It’s an excellent resource, bringing together product manuals, Supportpacs, developerWorks articles, tuning and performance information… well worth a visit if you are a broker practitioner. Slightly disappointed that my article on Dynamically updating Web Service interfaces is not listed, I’ll have to get in touch with the dW editors.

The seive-like qualities of Firefox 1.5

I’m sitting here on a train. No network connection.

I pop open the Windows Task Manager and sort by memory usage.

firefox.exe sits at the top of the list, using 433,312K of memory with a VM size of 445,100K. In the time it took me to type that, Mem Usage grew to 433,372K. CPU is at anywhere up to 10%.

To be fair, I have 33 tabs open (including James Governor’s interesting thoughts on Open Source messaging, which I’ve not got around to responding to).

I’ve been round this loop before, and people have told me, no, Firefox is fine, must be your extensions. Fair point, I have 34 of them. So a few weeks ago, I disabled about half of them. Hasn’t helped. Guess I’ll just have to disable the other half, and try again.

Mem Usage now 439,088K and rising. Leaky, leaky, leaky.
