the Best of secretGeek
Inspired by that wacky usability guru jakob nielsen, I've put up a list of the most popular pages at secretGeek. I'm going to make this list available from the menu on the right. So come with me now as we self-indulgently dip into the archives...
- Award for the Silliest User Interface: Windows Search
As seen in an actual book!
- How to be depressed
Harness the power of cognitive distortion to help you get less out of life.
- You are NOT inadequate.
You're not. And if you've missed out on making your fortune from Web 2.0, just forgive yourself now. Maybe Web 5.0 will be your turn.
- Refactoring With Whidbey
A silly joke, as timeless as the rivalry between C# and VB.
A real tool that I recommend you use every day. (I used it to write this list!)
- Sexy New Development Methodology!
TODO Driven Development. What started out as a joke has inspired a multi million dollar web 2.0 company. Probably.
- Excel-Lite: Hey coder! This spreadsheet's for you!
The programmer's spreadsheet that lets you crank out twice the code in a tenth of the time.
- How to write a novel
Everything you shouldn't do, but will do, when you try to write a novel.
- Writer's Block, Geek-Block, and Procrastination
A technique for overcoming Geek Block
- Gradient Maker
Image generator that helps you blend colours.
