Scott's Top 10 is a MUST read!
You really need to check out Scott Hanselman's 2005 Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List: I'm not saying you will use everything Scott suggests, but I've already done several installs and I'm not done yet. I knew about FireFox and BgInfo, but forgot to bring them along to my latest machine. NotePad2 was new to me, but immediately became my default text editor.

Why blog? Or how to get Virtual Server out to the web
Why blog? Lack of ego is not a serious problem for me, but who wants to hear what I have to say? My family, friends and User Group cohorts assure me they do. Maybe that's one of the good things about the web, a small audience is still an audience. A little research confirmed things like “rules“ and “structure“ are not paramount in the blog community. Since there’s no way I would ever do a daily post, it was nice to see that nobody cares. In fact with syndication, anyone ......
