Using c:param doesn't work in portlets

For some reason I cannot get a
<jsp:include page="include/mypage.jsp">
  <jsp:param name="jeffstest" value="26"/>
</jsp:include>

or
<c:import url="include/mypage.jsp">
  <c:param name="jeffstest" value="26"/>
</c:import>

to work inside of a portlet. The page includes okay, but the param is not passed to the request parameters successfully. The odd thing is that the param does get into the querystring!

So for now, my workaround is to do:
<c:set var="jeffstest" value="26" scope="request"/>
<c:import url="include/mypage.jsp"/>


I'd rather use the c:param tag, but for whatever reason it has problems inside a portlet. I'm using Jetspeed 1.6 Fusion (JSR-168 enabled), in case anyone is wondering.

Windows Console F7 Menu, Very Cool!

Did you know that from a windows console you can press F7 to open a small menu of your previous commands? Very cool for running ant scripts and the like! I can't believe that I didn't know this!

Here's a list of other Windows 2K/XP Command Console Shortcuts

CruiseControl Wiki Down Again!

Is it just me, or is the CruiseControl Wiki down an awful lot? Many times it has seemed very slow or out of commission over the past month that I have really been using it. It's rather frustrating that the main source of documentation is often inaccessible! I still love the product, but just wish the wiki would be more stable and reliable.

Firefox FoxyTunes Plugin

I have my second must-have firefox plugin, now that I've been shown the FoxyTunes Plugin. It allows you to control most any music program from the firefox status bar. Very cool! Of course, it still ranks second to the web-developer plugin!
