Things that I found interesting on April 28. 2006:
- A Blog Without Comments Is Not a Blog – Thoughts from Jeff Atwood. I think that sometimes the opposite becomes true (especially for some of the more popular sites with multiple contributors): A blog with comments is a forum, not a blog.
- Keeping Secrets in ASP.net 2.0 – Encrypting connection strings & more in this MSDN article from Rob Howard (via Christopher Steen)
- Ballmer: You have to get better at firing people! – (via Mini Microsoft)
- Create image reflections using Script.aculo.us – Cool scripting technique from Derek Punsalan
- Top Ten Lies of Engineers – From Guy Kawasaki. I don’t agree with all of these – some of them are only lies when told by extremely incompetant engineers (of course, these may be the types of people that Guy si used to working with, if so so sorry). In the real world, there are actually software engineers who write scalable code to industry standards and have a decent bug tracking system to back them up, who get things right from time to time. They do exist. Really.
- Search Engine Indexing Limits: Where Do Bots Stop? – Serge Bondar from SitePoint ran an interesting experiment to see how much content on large webpages is indexed by the major search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN).
