Shrinkster is either down or gone. Do you have long links for the tips in this post?

Sorry, I "shrinksterized" the links as I collected them, and didn't save the real URLs.

I have del.icio.us links to some of them:

http://delicious.com/brianschroer/visualstudio

A lot of the keyboard shortcut tips are from Sara Ford's blog:

http://blogs.msdn.com/saraford/

I think Shrinkster is still run by Carl Franklin, so I hope it will be back soon.
