Fresh from the clogged tubes of teh intarwubs…

  1. Get Started With Prototype

    "In this tutorial, I'll provide an introduction to the Prototype way of writing JavaScript. We'll find objects on the page in various ways and manipulate them. You'll still be writing JavaScript, but in an abbreviated form using Prototype shorthand. The best part is the stuff that caused the headaches–like the differences in browser implementations–is taken care of for you."

  2. Redirection – Manage 301 redirections without modifying Apache

    "Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections, keep track of 404 errors, and generally tidy up any loose ends your site may have. This is particularly useful if you are migrating pages from an old website, or are changing the directory of your WordPress installation."

  3. WordPress Plugin: Update URLs”

    "One common problem with moving WordPress to a new domain or directory is that updating the settings does not update the permalinks or urls embedded in the content. This means that images and other uploaded content will not show up! This plugin fixes that problem. It updates all urls and content links in your website to reflect the move to the new domain or directory."

  4. The bumpy ride hits toytown

    "We've never actually seen a true global recession in a Web 2.0 world. What's it going to look like? How is it going to differ from a recession in a pre-internet world? Is it going to accelerate the hollowing-out of the retail high street as economy-conscious shoppers increasingly move to online shopping and comparison systems like Froogle? Are we going to see homeless folks not only living in their cars but telecommuting from them, using pay-as-you-go 3G cellular modems, cheap-ass Netbooks, and rented phone numbers to give the appearance of still having a meatspace office? Is the increasing performance curve of consumer electronics going to give way to a deflationary price war as embattled producers try to hold on to market share as Moore's Law cuts the ground away from beneath their feet?"

  5. Long-Run vs. Long-Lag

    "With long-lag problems, you simply can't wait until the problem is imminent before you act. You have to act long in advance in order to solve the problem. In other words, the solution window closes long before the problem hits."
