Happy Birthday

It was two years ago today that I have started developing in App Engine, been one of the first 10000, when it was released to the first 10000 developers.
Since then I have spent a lot of days and nights (well ...  mostly nights) working with App Engine having seen it advancing to its present form, something I do not regret.
On this occasion I must express my many thanks to the wonderful App engine team for their efforts and the support they give to developers.

New Warning message in logs

Any body noticed following new warning on their logs ?
04-20 04:02PM 48.495
This request caused a new process to be started for your application, and thus caused your application code to be loaded for the first time. This request may thus take longer and use more CPU than a typical request for your application.
Very helpful and useful in many ways (code optimization etc.)
Oh ! just a short commend : could it be a little less verbose ? thus not waisting so much valuable space in logs database etc ?

Post mortem of a different kind.

Today's post has nothing to do with Application Engine neither with programming at large which are the subjects of this blog. 
Or may be it has ?
My dearest brother died last Wednesday night at the age of 47.
I do regret that been occupied with work and programming, did not spent much time with him lately neither I have listened carefully on what he was trying to tell me.
Programming is work and hobby but there are lots of other things in life that we should not neglect and never let computers, social networks and all virtual paraphernalia replace real human relationships.

CSS Chrome now supports border-radius

Just discovered that Chrome now supports standard CSS 3 border-radius.
So no need for "-webkit-border-radius" if you target chrome.
It works on 5.0.342.7 beta Linux still have to test for other OS & versions.
