GNU Screen is a UNIX tool that allows multiple console applications to be run, each in its own “window”, from the same terminal. In a single Screen session, you can run interactive shells, mail programs, SSH sessions, and other console based applications, and you can easily switch between these using hotkeys. You can even split up the Screen display so that multiple Screen windows can be viewed at the same time.
TMux is the shit. Use it more. alternative to SCREEN though I'm not sure for better or worse. I like that tmux splits screens horizontally and vertically and into quadrants.

Flowplayer allows you to easily play FLV videos from your website.
Download. Extract to remote server. Have your scripts referencing the correct paths to assets.

Chrome extensions I find useful.

Using jQuery validation package to handle email validation with checking against an existing database in just one function.
One of my developers shared this article via Twitter. That was about a week ago. Just finally getting caught up today on my readings. I'm glad I didn't pass this one along.
My initially impressions after the first three paragraphs: This is spot on! How coincidental that this is also playing along in the background, perfectly accommodating the epiphany?!
Every so often, I foobar something in git and accidentally add a bunch of crap to the repo. Traditionally and ignorantly, I've just done a
git reset --hard and lose my work, which was OK. However, I came to a point where I could NOT lose my work. Solution:
git reset --soft HEAD^
The above command basically undoes your previous commit and puts everything back onto staging. Particularly, HEAD^ is the identifier of that state prior to the commit.
Recently decided on converting to a standing desk. Trying to cheaply convert the one that I have.
More images and description to come when I've finalized it. Excited to use my swing arms again.
Great part about the standing desk is that the desk's footprint is smaller without a chair, so this'll open up a small room some more. And with good music on, you're bound to also move them hips a bit and burn even more calories.
Looking for a solutions to running popular CMS's on MSSQL. Here's some for Wordpress.
Apparently Microsoft is pushing for this.
Here's a list of several modules I've been playing with to no avail. Awhile ago, I had (still do) the need to have parts of a particular Drupal site change themes.
The following is a list of tabs I have opened in Chrome. Eventually when I figure it out, I suppose I will also update it here, recursively linking to myself, so to speak.
I've bashed on Lion in the past but it's getting better. I'm getting used to the gestures for lack of the old methods I'm used to. Still wished it was an option, as the glitches appear to remain, but I'm getting used to Mission Control now, what was once called Spaces.
I've been looking for a suitable Expose and Spaces alternatives for Windows 7. The following is a list I've compiled.
