Caffeinated Coder A Grande, Triple Shot, Non-Fat Core Dump by Russell Ball
Just to clarify, I am blatantly stealing this idea from Max Pool at codesqueeze.

I met Max at the Alt.Net conference last weekend and had some really interesting conversations about blogging with him. He started his blog about the same time I did and is enjoying it just as much as I am. The one rather significant difference is that he also has a passion for the art of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and has created a very interesting and highly polished blog that has gotten all kinds of
<blogEnvy>technorati love</blogEnvy> in an incredibly short period of time as a result of his efforts. As a stark contrast, you can see my own anemic score here.

I still haven't made my way through all of his posts, but from what I read so far I would highly recommend you check it out.


As part of my hommage to Max, here are the top 5 posts so far according to readers and to myself.

Reader's Choice (in order according to most views)
  1. New Employee Hall of Fame - an amusing .wav file containing a voice message from a new employee who just set off the alarm system and doesn't know how to turn it off
  2. The September 2007 Caffeinated Codey Winners - a humorous tribute to some of my favorite bloggers
  3. Code Quality: The Holy Grail of Software - a rant on the current state of code reviews and corporate standards documents
  4. The July 2007 Caffeinated Codey Winners - the original post that started significantly increased my beer budget
  5. Cultivating Good Audience Karma with the 10/20/30 Rule - some good advice on PowerPoint minimalism.
My favorites
  1.  ALT.NET Conference: The Geek Paparazzi Uncover Real Controversy - tons of fun with picture cropping
  2. The September 2007 Caffeinated Codey Winners - the javascript accusations, the new Boo Build System, and STD-based analogies...and the picture of the victimized dog
  3. Informavore Trap # 2: Information Junk Food - some advice on the art of being a continuous learner.
  4. He Likes to Run for Fun in the Hot, Hot Sun - a non-geeky topic just to mix things up a bit.
  5. Excessive Abstraction can lead to the Bends - an early warning sign that I was becoming disillusioned with being an architect.
