Mark Wielaard: New GPG key.
Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

GlassFish Outposts #1: Whitehorse, Yukon Territory (Canada)
Last week, I announced my plan to start taking virtual trips to "GlassFish Outposts" -- regions of the world that are fairly isolated, remote from where most of us live. Thanks to the internet, however, these places are just as connected as any of us. And, as the GlassFish Usage Map shows us, there are plenty of developers in these places.
Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada
Today I'm visiting Whitehorse, located on Mile 918 of the Alaska Highway, in Canada's Yukon Territory (latitude 61 North, longitude 135 West). Whitehorse is the capital of the Yukon Territory, and has a population of just over 20,000. There's a chance of rain today, and afternoon temperatures will be in the low teens (C) [upper 50s F].
Anyway, I think perhaps multiple people are running GlassFish in Whitehorse as we speak. Here's the GlassFish image and data for the Whitehorse region:
In this view, I believe the "Stats For Visible Area" is giving us the number of Admin hits to the GlassFish.org site. There were 883 total recorded hits as of July 2010 (I don't know when the start date for recording Admin hits was). Through March 2010, there were 854 admin hits. So, a lot of the GlassFish work was apparently done in Whitehorse prior to March. Checking the GlassFish Admin IPs statistic through July 2010, we see a value of 16 - which I believe means GlassFish has been deployed on at least 16 different systems in the Whitehorse area at one...
