I am alive! Hoping to return to a daily find next week. Stay tuned.
http://www.datejs.com/ – Gives you RTM type of date handling
Masked Input Plugin – Jquery plugin to mask data input, very nice.
Asp.Net Control Panel Control – Great idea
Charles – Http watcher similar to Fiddler
AMY Editor – online source code editor based off of textmate, very cool
Mozilla Bespin – Online code editor
Microsoft offers $250K for Conficker virus creator – Was it you? Email me if so
In honor of Steve Jobs stepping down, I’ll call this the Mac OS X Server edition.
Optimizing an Xserve for Web Hosting – Been there done that.
Macos-x-server.com – wiki full of info not found many other places.
Apple Server Discussion Group – If you must ask a question
Mac OS X Manual Pages – Boy do I wish I would have found this resource earlier
Learn MVC – Accomplished. I started down the asp.net mvc route but after a short bit realized I didn’t want to learn beta technology that would be a moving target on top of learning mvc. I then went down the ruby on rails route but again I was learning 2 things at once and ended up settling on CodeIgniter MVC framework for PHP. I really enjoyed learning CI and mvc and made doing PHP much more bearable and actually enjoyable again! I can’t imagine writing PHP without a mvc framework and hopefully it will make learning asp.net mvc or ruby on rails that much easier since I now understand the mvc concept pretty well.
Get Microsoft Certified – Accomplished. Passed the MCTS 70-536 exam test. Learned/memorized some new things but frankly I think I’ve already forgotten alot of it. It was worth it though.
Actively Post to this Blog – Accomplished. I’m going to say “mission accomplished”. The daily find never was daily and really was never meant to be. It’s just a name and besides I do have real work to do besides finding the best web stuff for my readers, the 2 of you
Learn LINQ – Accomplished. Big fan of linq and grudge when I’m working on an older application that uses plain sql strings.
Learn Ruby – Fail. Really epic fail. Just never got to it. This is one of my top goals for 2009.
Learn Silverlight – Fail. This I don’t feel that bad about. I’ve never been keen on Flash development and silverlight falls under this category for me. I’m not a great designer so my UI will never be sweet and I don’t see myself using this professionally so, eh… off my list.
Zero Inbox – Fail. Instead I now depend on search, either in Gmail or outlook 2007 (which is actually not bad). It’s been working good for me. Off my list.
5 out of 8 is one heck of a batting average in baseball and I’ll take it.
QA Wizard Pro 2009 released – Really nice automated tester for Web, Windows, and Java Applications
Oxite – Microsoft online standards web 2.0 site or something like that
Android Dev Phone Released – Unlocked Android phone for $399
