I got a new development machine at work – a 24" iMac. Since I am not an OSX fan at all, I immediately installed Windows 7 x64 on it and initiated a search for a fitting background image.
And then I found it:
And that's how you set up your iMac people.

This is a quick recipe that I found pretty interesting and relatively unknown.
Everyone who uses SVN knows that most repositories are set up to allow viewing of their contents via a web browser. For example, here's the trunk of WP Plugins SVN: http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/ and here is the current trunk version of a specific file, let's say http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/stats/trunk/readme.txt.
However, what if you wanted to view a specific revision of a file or directory in your browser?
Let's say I wanted revision 100,000 of http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/stats/trunk/readme.txt
Normally, on a command line, you'd do something like
svn co http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/stats/trunk/readme.txt stats cd stats; svn up -r100000 readme.txt
svn export -r100000 http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/stats/trunk/readme.txt
However, how would you do this in …
My Hands-On Review Of 2010 thirtytwo Focus Boa Snowboard Boots. Are These The Best Snowboard Boots… Ever?

In this review I'm going to take a look at a pair of 2010 thirtytwo Focus Boa snowboard boots that I picked up a few weeks ago, after spending a day demoing them in the snow at a resort in Tahoe.
Even though I am an avid snowboarder (I try to go to the snow almost every weekend during the winter), I haven't evaluated my gear in years. This season, however, I decided to take a look at my options with the snowboard boots.
It was only after the shoelace on one of my 5 year old Salomon Dialogue boots snapped that I even considered checking out other boots. I was always *kind of* happy with …
How *Not* To Implement A Web Application That Handles External Authentication, Using BeTwittered.com As An Example
Today I'm going to look at how not to handle user authentication in a web application, taking BeTwittered.com authenticating with Twitter as an example (sorry, guys).
BeTwittered is a simple and comfortable gadget that you can add to your site, such as your iGoogle homepage.
Since BeTwittered is just a bridge between you and Twitter, it has to first log you into your account. Here is where things go horribly, horribly wrong.
1. BeTwittered does not use SSL to secure requests to its servers
All authentication information is transmitted to BeTwittered servers in plain text and is easily sniffable by an attacker, both on your own network and outside of it. You can read more about SSL encryption here….
