Coffee has no fat
Coffee in its "purest" form has no fat and no calories whatsoever. But here come the shockers:
- Two tablespoons of flavored nondairy creamer (liquid) adds 80 calories and four grams of fat (as much as a pat of butter).
- Two tablespoons of flavored syrup adds 80 calories, but no fat.
- One tablespoon of cream adds 50 calories and six grams of fat.
- One tablespoon of half-and-half has 20 calories and two grams of fat.
- Cappuccino (espresso, steamed milk, foamed milk) has seven grams of fat and 137 calories when whole milk is used; four grams of fat and 109 calories with low-fat milk; just under a half gram of fat and 80 calories with fat-free milk.
- Coffee latte (espresso and steamed milk) has 212 calories and nine grams of fat when whole milk is used; 167 calories and six grams of fat with low-fat milk; 123 calories and 0.6 grams fat with fat-free milk.
- Coffee mocha with whole milk (espresso, cocoa, steamed milk) has 340 calories and 20 grams of fat with whipped cream; 260 calories with six grams of fat without whipped cream.
- Coffee mocha with low-fat milk has 302 calories and 16 grams of fat with whipped cream; 220 calories and six grams of fat minus whipped cream.
- Coffee mocha with fat-free milk has 264 calories and 11 grams of fat with whipped cream and 182 calories; two grams of fat without whipped cream.
Here are a few suggestions:
- Choose the smallest size cup, either eight or 12 ounces. This can save you up to 110 calories.
- Ask that your beverage be made with fat-free milk instead of whole milk. This saves you about 80 calories and up to eight grams of fat.
- Use a sugar substitute instead of real sugar. One teaspoon of sugar is 15 calories.
- Order coffee without whipped cream, flavored syrup, chocolate or candy pieces.

A chap behind me shouts "Careful darlin'!"
"Oh", thinks I, "another English type person, I shall say hello."
At the next set of traffic lights I turn and say "That was a near miss hey?"
"Hva' siger du?" comes the reply.
"Sorry, I thought you spoke English."
So, did he speak Danish and I just understood it without realising what language he was speaking? Spooky...

Overheard in a clients office
"They're all certified up to point-and-click level 3."
"Having Macafee Virus scanner on a heavily loaded Oracle server is a smart move: it constantly scans the rollback logs for viruses."

Archaeology and contracting
Fighting with a jboss installation today. There are two jars with the same name: one in action, one in deploy. In this jar is supposed to be a class with a static method which takes three parameters. Now in the oldest jar, the class is not there, in the newest jar the class is there but the method only takes 2 parameters (I decompiled to check). So it must be somewhere else. A bruteforce search doesn't find it, and getting the jsp to tell me where the class is: URL whereItIs = getClass().getClassLoader().getResource(
Now an archaeologist might start first by "field walking", i.e. just wandering around on the site to see if there is anything just laying on the surface, and then go on to a geophysical survey.
Hmm, geophysical survey: I think I need to write a tool that acts like a radar to find where this class might be hiding.
