A few bloggers are lamenting about the passing of Erik’s Linkblog. So Alex and Mike I give you a some reprieve and offer this bit of code you can insert into your own blog. While it is not Erik’s link blog, at least you can get your fix of daily Java articles.

Great news! From my home state even…
From Computer World:
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said Thursday that police in the state have arrested six convicted sex offenders for violating parole by posting online profiles on MySpace.com. The social networking site provided data on the profiles to the attorney general.
The arrests are the result of what the state is calling the first crackdown in the country on sex offenders stemming from data that MySpace provided to several state attorneys general in May.
MySpace had first refused the request from attorneys general in eight states to turn over the names of convicted sex offenders who had registered on its site, but relented when the officials subpoenaed the data.
