  1. Twenty-four small drawers

    Re-organised and labelled for the first time in more than twenty years.



  1. Hg Init: a Mercurial tutorial by Joel Spolsky

    I also finally finished this, and it was the least scary thing about version control systems I’ve ever read. Is there something as un-scary for git/github?

  2. Ten rules for writing fiction | Books |

    Finally got round to reading this. Is good and interesting like everyone said in February.

  3. Flash Crash | Beyond The Beyond
