Links from the Trenches #1
Ok everyone, its time for a new segment on this blog: Links from the Trenches. I thought it would be helpful for me to recap some sites I've been surfing during the week that reflect the DEVTRENCH MO. This is going to be a regular weekly think that I'm going to do to help myself and you stay connected with what's going on out there on the Net.
- Codesqueeze wrote a post about 101 Ways To Know Your Software Project Is Doomed and its great. In fact these are the kind of development scenarios that got me thinking that we work on the front lines in the first place. As some of you know I worked at a University for 3 years, and much of the activity that went on there is reflected in this list. This is a must read for any programmer. Oh yeah, and it's hilarious.
- Bearskinrug is the web site of illustrator Kevin Cornell. I'm not sure how I found this site, but I know I spent about an hour on it looking at all of the artwork there. This guy is simply an awesome illustrator and cartoonist. Particularly funny is the "The Bear" flash widget found on his portfolio page. Check it out.
- On the more technical side of things, I've been trying to figure out how to use Ethereal for quite some time and this website has the top ten Ethereal tips and tricks. It told me some stuff I didn't know so I thought I'd post it here in case I have any novice network security/packet sniffer people reading this blog. I've been interested in packet sniffing and network security more and more over the years, especially since I found out how insecure wireless networks are.
