After 25 it's all over

Rory Blyth wonders what he's going to do with his life.  He's 25 and has lots of things he'd like to do but then realizes it can all be done. Join the club Rory. I'm 27, married, have a son, a good job, etc. I still can't help but feel I should be doing something else. I don't think a day goes by where I don't think about what might be in store for me elsewhere. But, right now I believe God has me where I am to teach me patience and responsibility.

Fleeing from responsibility and following a calling can be a rather thin line. My wife has asked me lately if I ever regret getting married at the age of 21. I tell her I don't regret that one bit and that's the truth. What did I miss out on? I'll tell you what, I believe I would have self-destructed long before now if I didn't have Kelly in my life. I've come close to self-destructing with her and it was far worse before she came into my life. God obviously wants to keep me around a bit longer.

But what do I want to do with my life? I don't have a clue. OK, maybe I do, but it's vague. Follow God where ever he's leading me. I want to do great things. I don't want to do anything. I don't have the first clue about what I want to do with my life. All I know is that there is meaning to all of this and it starts with God. That's a start.

Apache J2EE app server

TheServerSide.com: Apache has started a project to create an open source, Apache-licenses implementation of J2EE. One of the core commitments is for the implementation to be fully J2EE compliant. The Apache Foundation has access to the J2EE TCKs, which make the certification possible. The core developers who have “signed up” include members from OpenEJB, Apache, Core Developers Network, Exolab, and more!

This is interesting. JBoss has been fighting with Sun for the past year or so over licensing issues and now Apache is in the game of Open Source J2EE servers. It seems a bit late to me. Why has it taken Sun this long to allow this to happen? At least Microsoft hasn't caught on either.
