My favorite Windows utilities - Part I
One essential software I use, to speed up program launching and even document opening is - Find and Run Robot aka FARR.
      It is a extremely nifty software! The customizability and SDK availability for FARR allows you to introduce additional features catering your specific need. This was one of the reasons why i chose FARR over some others.

cambrainhouse.com - crowd-sourced software

mycaps Screenshot - 001 , 05_15_AM , Jul 13 2006_thumb.png
Calgary-based Cambrian House, which launched officially on June 28th, is generating a lot of buzz around its “crowd-sourced software” strategy. The company allows members to submit ideas that could succeed on the Internet, then vote for their favorites. You can also submit code to Cambrian House, much like an open-source project. What’s more, users are awarded Royalty Points for their contributions: if a product is launched commercially and starts making money, you’ll earn a cut.

interesting idea.. sounds tricky to pull off, but interesting.

A rant on programming language syntax and verbosity: Why Ruby is not for me

blog clipart
When looking at the new programming languages, sometimes i feel like i'm alone in the wilderness in advocating for verbosity and the value of longer and clearer code.

I've never understood the desire to find shorter and shorter ways of expressing code.  In fact one of the things i always try to hammer home when helping people learn to be better coders is that it's better to write 10 lines of understandable code than 2 lines of perfect concise incomprehensible hacks.  But perl seems to have mainstreamed this obfucation-contest flavored coding style, and now here comes Ruby..

Read about the section of the Ruby manual that is a deal breaker for me..
