Weekly Link Round-Up #13
I cannot wait until Tuesday. I have been talking for about 2 years now about getting an Apple laptop, and I think the time has finally come. Depending on what is announced at MacWorld on Tuesday, I will most likely be ordering a brand spanking new Macbook on Wednesday. I'm so excited, that I feel like a little kid on Christmas.
Ok, well I guess here is the stuff that I found interesting this week.
- DOS ain’t so bad after all
I know exactly what Cameron is talking about. You go into furniture stores and places like that, you see these workers who have been working there for ages just flying through all of these DOS screens; they are really efficient.
- Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?
Ok, this was one of the funniest things I have ever read. Click through and read the entire book. So weird…
- Access Switch
Yeah, I think I am going to have to be doing this soon. Why do cable companies offer a promotional period for only 3 months and then like double the price? There is no way I am sticking with them if they don’t give me another promotion.
- Solutioneering, or putting solutions before problems
I love this article. We need to continue to solve specific problems on the web. Not just throw out the first solution that comes to mind. I know I am guilty of that at times, but it is something that I am working on.
- UDASSS (Unobtrusive Degradable Ajax Style Sheet Switcher) Official Documentation
This was an excellent article that debuted on 24ways, and it is great to read some further documentation.
- Everyone is Joining the Data Portability Working Group
Google, Facebook, Six Apart, Flickr, LinkedIn, and others all joined the Data Portability Working Group. This is awesome news. Imagine being able to manage all of those accounts with one login? Or by going Facebook and being able to access data from your Google account. This is a great step towards that.
