Maven Issues

If you catch any of these errors below, trying to rebuild/install things with maven, I have a solution, that worked for me atleast.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/codehaus/plexus/embed/Embedder

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.codehaus.plexus.embed.Embedder

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/codehaus/plexus/embed/Embedder

My solution: In Ubuntu, just uninstall maven2 completely, and reinstall maven2.

Three things not to do with the internet

Here is my wisdom and tales to pass on to future generations of web surfers. A word of caution to future internet users so that they don't make the same mistakes I did.

1) Do not try to type: svn co "The Internet", if it ever finishes, you won't have nearly enough time to fix it.

2) Unless you understand the consequences do not type: wget http://*

3) Do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, type in to Google, [google]. Googling Google for [google] will be a sudden overload to the system, and then the rest of the world, who's internet you've just destoryed, will find you in real life, and say: "this is why we can't have nice things".
