- a great little list from Phil Haack (and be sure to read comments as well)...



I found a bunch of great Computer Laws... A few highlights: Ellison's Law: The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity. (Harlan Ellison) Jakob's Law of the Internet User Experience: Users spend most of their time on other websites. (Jakob Nielsen) Nathan's First Law: Software is a gas; it expands to fill its container. (Nathan ......

As I'm sitting here, my wrists are hurting slightly, due to the fact that at my new job (well, I'm back at my old workplace, but with a new title and all that) I don't have my normal keyboard. Also, my "new" chair sucks big time, so it's all agony ;-) So I thought I'd share an old link with you guys: Jon Galloway : Mouseless Computing - although I know ......

Whaaat? This screen appeared in Visual Studio 2005, right after I deleted a server control from HTML view and saved the file (not the designer-file, the aspx-file). And it just stayed there. No cancel, no way back into Visual Studio what so ever!? I wonder if I'm missing a service pack :-s Ended up terminationg the VS-process manually. Bummer ......

Pro users no longer have upload limits - and regular users now have a 100MB limit each month, instead of the 20MB they used to:http://feeds.feedburner.... That's damn good news for me, having just bought a new 10,1MP camera - with a 2GB memory card ......

Have a look at the top 20 lessons learned by JD in his 20 years of programming: http://www.dcs-media.com/de... [Via Software by Rob] ......

I know it works. I just know it :-)

I just installed a "funny" little (free) plugin for VS.2005. It's called SlickEdit Gadgets - I haven't really figured out yet if it can help me be more productive, but try it out for yourselves: Download the free SlickEdit Gadgets thingy here ......

In case you haven't heard, Microsoft just released the WinFX/.NET 3.0 Framework into RTM ......

Via Paul Ballard: "Microsoft has just dropped a set of Visual Studio 2005 PowerToys. Here's what you get: Source Code Outliner : The Source Outliner tool is a Visual Studio extension that provides a tree view of your source code's types and members and lets you quickly navigate to them inside the editor.Visual C++ Code Snippets:The Visual C++ Code Snippets ......

Note to self: Hey self! That fantastic tool you forget the name and URL of, and found out that you badly needed at your new job, was Steve Millers PureText. The Googled URL to Steves web site seemed to be invalid, so you found it at pcworld.com instead :-)

I hate command prompts. I know - I'm supposed to be a geek and all, and therefore love prompts and stuff. But I just hate them anyway. So I was very pleased when I stumbled across andrewconnell.com, where I found a very nifty trick for avoiding some command prompt hell... BTW, the article says it's a VS2005 trick, but it works fine for me in VS2003 ......

Over at feedicons.com (great initiative, by the way), I can't find the link to their feed ;-)

I can, however, subscribe to their newsletter!?

Quote from http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/C... This document specifies Best Practices for delivering Web content to mobile devices. The principal objective is to improve the user experience of the Web when accessed from such devices. The recommendations refer to delivered content and not to the processes by which it is created, ......

Yeah... I got my HP iPAQ 6515 this weekend. Although I am having some problems adjusting to this whole PDA idea whilst also using the thing as a phone, I am planning on using it as a way to get going with the .NET Compact Framework.So, I was looking for a good database solution for mobile devices - and then I saw this: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Everywhere ......

The hard work, the countless hours and endless nights. I am now finally a respected blogger (not like back in the old days): My blog is worth $1,129.08.How much is your blog worth? Hehe ;-) ......

Did you guys hear about Spore from EA before this years E3? I certainly didn't - but it looks goooood... And won some awards, too!

So, I finally figured out why my blog didn't have CAPTCHA (why am I constantly writing CAPTHCA?) for the comments. It turns out that Jeff (Julian) had forgotten to add it to the skin I'm using here - I wish I had known before I manually deleted something like 60 spam comments, all from the same stupid [product name] moron. I had been looking for the ......

Google announced a few new services yesterday: Google Trends and Google Co-op.Trends inherits its concept from Zeitgeist, allowing you to see search (and news) activity for defined keywords. I like it!Co-op is quite a bit more nerdy - I'm not sure I actually get it yet :-/ ......

What I've learned today:The final application startup tweak we'll discuss is preventing a second instance of the application from starting. Of course, some document-based applications make sense to run multiple times, but many utilities make no sense, or can even cause problems when run this way. It turns out that we can easily make a change to accomplish ......

ThinkGeek offers a lot of weird and very, very geeky stuff to the geeks in all of us. But this new thingy takes the prize: Buzzaire - Metered Dose Caffeine InhalerThis is insane - if someone needs an inhaler in order to get his/her caffeine buzz, he/she should go see a doctor. In fact, anyone willing to spend money on such a device should go see that ......

Via Dave Shea @ mezzoblue:"Who's affected? Well, do you use the <OBJECT> element? Then, potentially, you are. Sites that embed PDF, Flash, QuickTime, Windows Media, or RealPlayer files will all get hit by this.What happens? The page loads, but the controls are disabled by default.
