Today's my first day as part of the search team at Yahoo. As mentioned earlier, I've spent 3 years working on Yahoo Finance.

I can't say a lot about what I'm working on, but from the sound of things I'll be playing with Java, MySQL, and Oracle a fair amount. It should be interesting. I haven't really touched Java since 1996.

Congrats on your new Yahoo job. I saw this and I thought, "What! Somebody actualy works at Yahoo that communicates with real people!"

I don't surpose you could change some settings to make some certain sites come up? Oh well I had to at least ask.

Java has changed a little bit since 1996.. not much.. just a teeny bit :)

The last time I touched Java was in about 1998 and I was attempting to use AWT and JDBC. It pretty much sucked. Hopefully in the last four years things have improved a little, though I haven't been brave enough to find out :)

Jeremy, of course make sure you do get a hold of me if you have any MySQL-and-Java questions, so that you get the answer from the 'horse's mouth', so-to-speak.
