Link Dump – End of June

Holy links Batman! What follows below are a collection of links from the semi-regular closing of tabs to reclaim memory.

Also, I don’t have cats, but I blame my excessive amount of open tabs on them: Links VCAP-DCA Obj 9 follow-up http://www.vhersey.com/2012/05/vbrownbag-vcap5-dca-objective-9/ Big Iron hatin on Cloud Storage: http://dataontop.com/doing-their-very-best-to-stall-cloud-storage/ Razor! – Read, watch the videos… then[…]

Link Dump 5/19/12

It’s time for yet another round of ‘close ALL the tabs’. Made even better this time by some random mixup by which some apps open links in FireFox tabs, others in Chrome. Instead of fixing it, it makes for a nice organization system. http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2012/05/please-dont-learn-to-code.html – To code or not to code. Some decent arguments both[…]
