I’ve been using Furl for almost a year now. In fact it was Jul 23, 2004 at 23:13:58 GMT that I ‘furled’ my very first furl: Furl – How to Save. Using it on a daily basis, I collected some 500+ interesting, funny, need-to-know, nice-to-know or what-else public links. Not much compared to others, but still a respectable number nonetheless. 🙂
So what have I been hamstering this past year? Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.
What are my most popular items? Oddly enough not very WebDev stuff. Here’s a top 3:
- www.par2.net – Par 2.x Specification with 144 views.
Parity Volume Set Specification 2.0. A specification for a system to repair files based on Reed-Solomon coding. Effectively creating redunancy to recreate damaged (digital) files.
- Windows PE – Stuff with 118 views.
An excellent PE-builder plugin resource. PE-builder is a rescue disk that saved my ass a couple of times. Go get it!
- adaptive path Â» ajax: a new approach to web applications with 84 views.
One of my first furls about (S)AJAX and XMLHttpRequests. So this one counts as WebDev.
On the other hand there are the items nobody found interesting. Except me. Again a top 3:
- Tables Vs. CSS – A Fight to the Death [CSS Tutorials] with no views.
A tutorial on Sitepoint.com about CSS vs Tables. Pretty much WebDev.
- ASP Web Based EMail Using Microsoft’s CDONTS Tutorial with no views.
A small tutorial on using CDONTS to send mail from IIS/ASP. Nowadays you’ll probably use CDOSYS.
- COLOR IN MOTION with no views.
A very well done Flash movie about: ‘An animated and interactive experience of color communication and color symbolism’.
If you want to know more, but still don’t know where to find my Furl: here it is or take the RSS.
