Using Flex SDK 3.1 with BlazeDS and LCDS 2.6

Flex SDK 3.1 was released recently, and for those of you using BlazeDS and Adobe LiveCycle Data Services wanting to use it, the following should help.

To use Flex SDK 3.1 with the latest stable build of BlazeDS 3, all you need to do is compile using SDK 3.1. No additional steps are required.

If you would like to build and use BlazeDS 3.1 which has Flex SDK 3.1 integrated in it, synch to http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/tags/3.1.0

If you would like to compile LCDS 2.6 applications with Flex SDK 3.1, follow the instructions here: http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/programLC/programmer/lcds/help.html?content=build_apps_4.html#170990

To the Moon for Helium-3: The Long-Term Answer to Foreign Oil?

I came across this article on Helium-3, of which apparently just 40 tons of the stuff could power the entire United States for a full year. Check out the article here:


The catch? Helium-3 is only found in quantity on the moon.

Then we could switch all the US power plants to Helium-3 fusion reactors, which could be safe enough to put in US city centers. Then switch to electric plugin cars with gasoline backup engines like the Chevvy Volt.

Sure sounds good anyway. US $10 Billion/ton. Hmmmm...how do you file for mining rights on the moon anyway? :)
