Interesting Find #20

The next post in the interesting find series.

  1. Top 25 ‘most dangerous’ programming errors for 2009 – interesting read as always. 🙂
  2. The 100 essential websites – from the Guardian.
  3. Please Rob – the dark side of geocoding.
  4. SSD Optimisation guide – a must read if anyone is thinking of buying a SSD drive.
  5. 37Signals – simple web based apps (instead of bloatware) covering things like managing projects, tracking contacts, organizing your business, etc. (Not free in case you were wondering).
  6. Never reboot Linux – even when updating the Kernel. When can Windows have this?
  7. SSD Tweak Utility – if you still want to tweak more things after reading the SSD optimisation guide above.
  8. FsUnit – Test F# with F# – I think the name says it all.
  9. devZing – No hassle open source project management hosting (from $10 / month); though I wonder why you can’t use google for this.

  11. Podcasts from MS – the name says it all.
  12. Digging for Sensitive information – how to get details on someone you know.
  13. Panopticlick — How unique, and trackable, is your browser? My browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 641,692 tested so far which is quite scary!
  14. SideShow for Windows Mobile Developer Preview – only works with Win7.
  15. Large Query performance stats from SQL 2K to 2K8 – quite interesting and covers both x32 and x64.
  16. PresentationFx – provides free PowerPoint templates and artwork.
  17. Making a cool Vista Screensaver – this should also work on Win7 (not tried this btw).

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
