NixMashup for January 1, 2014

Greetings from Vermont and welcome to the launch of NixMashup! In each NixMashup I’ll be covering geeky topics I find interesting or helpful in my current work. Most NixMashup links can also be found on the NixMash Twitter feed at

In the inaugural NixMashup we’ll cover several Java and Eclipse topics, working with JAR files, a bash command or two, Don Henley, and underwater power producing kites.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
