Can't recall if this has been linked before: it's a good discussion of the strengths of FPGAs.

Couple things though: the perspective is a little weird to my eyes, but I think that's because the author has a strong CPU ASIC background.

Also, he depicts the fabric as a flat mesh of LUT+FF (island-style) but modern FPGAs use a mesh of blocks of LUT+FF internally connected with a crossbar.

I can't even begin to tell you how invaluable this advise is!

Solved a WiFi problem by switching router to channel 11. Wife replies with a grin: "You fixed it by turning it up to 11!?". I love my wife. :)
