Editor's note: Duke has been busy helping java.net celebrate our second anniversary: June 10, 2005.

Our Head First Design Pattern friends Eric and Elisabeth Freeman have sent a shot of a celebratory cake.

James Gosling has contributed several pictures of Duke enjoying himself. The first is an image that was done for an event in Brazil; it's Duke in a "Saltimbanque" Carnival outfit. The can and stick Duke is holding are musical instruments used in Carnival.

James Gosling also passes on a cartoon from a few years ago that seems to capture the java.net spirit.
