Microsoft Windows 1.03 and other tools, 1985
The following is the installation and boot-up sequence for the first release version of perhaps the most important software currently in the world: Microsoft Windows.
I wish I could say I was interested in computers back then, …but you know, I was ….2.
SEOmoz’s Web 2.0 Awards

10 Science stuff you got wrong at School
I admit, I was a guilty of a few of these…
The Piracy Calculator
What’s your illegal hoard worth? What’s the street value of all your pirated MP3s and movies? How much would the RI/MPAA demand – minimum – if they sued you? Find out!
The explanation says it all…I won’t tell you my number
Site design using Prototype
The internet is full of tutorials explaining those little tricks about AJAX, how to handle XHRequests and all that low level stuff, but nobody tells you how to design the entire application, nobody gives you the overview on how all these things should work together. What good is knowing all those fragments if the developer is unable to put them together to a real use?
He’s has quite a valid point. It’s difficult to take the bits and piece one has learned and really figure out how to go about putting them together into a useful web application. A great read.
Making anti-aliased rounded corners with CSS
As my girl and I have discovered, he is kind of lying when ge says “simple”, but this only matters if you really get down into the code. For most people, just use his site to set the values and off you go…simple and yet very attractive.

Cool stuff, if only I had a clue how to do stuff like this…
Passclicks is a new way to login to websites without users having to remember thir old style textual password. Studies have revealed that humans are way better in remembering visual things than textual things. With passclicks your normal textual passwords are replaced with a sequence of clicks on an image.
I can’t decide how I feel about this. It’s a very cool idea, but I think it would be just as difficult if not more so to remember the order of clicks as it is now to remeber one’s password. Granted, it would be quite difficult for bots to solve this type of human verification challenge which may be a more likely application. Still, quite cool.
