Replace an undated testimonial with a dated one.

Note: We should probably work toward more dated testimonials,

just for the credibility of them.

     35"I've been using ABCL to help position the Keck telescope on targets
     36that are too faint to see with the slit guider.  I used code I
     37created in 1994 - in Lisp - for the exact calculations and combined it
     38with Java libraries for getting images in and displaying things. The
     39Lisp code ran unmodified. And what's more: I can run it all on my
     40Windows laptop!<br /> <br />
     41The original project went so well that I stared to do new work in Lisp again."

    94 I'm using ABCL for various web projects since aproximately 2004. None of them have gone public (so far), so i can't give a link.
    95 I released sort of framework for building web apps with ABCL was released into
    96 open source: <a href="http://abcl-web.sourceforge.net/">abcl-web</a>.
    97 Another thing probably worth mentioning -- bindings to Jena2 RDF/SPARQL library:
    98 http://abcl-web.sourceforge.net/rdf.html (it's sort of incomplete but usable, i think).
    99 <br />
    100 What i like in ABCL is that it has reasonably stable multithreading, does
    101 not crash unpredictably (unlike some other implementations) and can be
    102 fixed in more-or-less easy way if something goes bad, and access to Java
    103 libs, of course. I had some problems with it, though, to name some:
    104 <ul>
    105 <li>SLIME being botched (i suspect due to CLOS invoking compiler which is not
    106 reentrant),</li>
    107 <li>CLOS not thread safe,</li>
    108 <li>compiler producing wrong code.</li>
    109 </ul>
    110 That certainly made experience with ABCL less pleasant that it could be,
    111 but in general it was more-or-less good.
