    • Closing - "The Outer Light" or "Inside the Light" (they haven't decided yet) by Butterflies and Zebras (Norm Howard, and Steve Northover - the SWT dude) - "I tuned my old acoustic to a C modal tuning that I like (CACDCE).  I asked Norm for some east Indian sounds which he proceeded to make flawlessly, using a glass slide and his sunburst strat.  Without warning, he launched into a rhythm pattern, using his delay to double up what he was playing (the delay is in time with the rhythm so it's there, but you don't notice it, so it's kind of ghostly).  I took the solo, clean first with a TS9 for light distortion and then the wah, and finally clean again.  Towards the end, I switch to rhythm (no delay) and Norm solos, using the same delay that he used for the rhythm. He's tasteful and heads for the stars during the fade out" - http://www.onmusic.com/nands

We now have a google group for the Java Posse at http://groups.google.com/group/javaposse

Van is the leader of the ComputeCycles project. ComputeCycles is an open-source project which uses Jini, Glassfish and Groovy to build a secure, scalable, "on-the-fly" compute grid. In this interview he talks about the role Jini plays in that effort and why it's used at the core of the ComputeCycles project.

Hi Posse Listeners. I just got through setting up the Java Posse google group. You can get it at:

http://groups.google.com/group/javaposse

Anyone can read the posts there, but only members can post (this is hopefully to cut down spam posting). It is unmoderated but if we end up with a lot of spam we might start moderating first posts (I don't think any of us want this to turn into a Chinese links spam distribution medium).

Enjoy, and I hope this group gets some traffic. We will, of course, be reading it and joining in.
