I am putting together a list of basic programming concepts.  Things that any programmer should know. Is there anything else you would add to this list?
Variables & Constants
Data Types
Numbers & Math Operators
Input/Output
Logical Operators & Conditionals (IF, switch, etc.)
Loops (For, While)
Arrays/Lists
Functions

DEV Tools  - 
 
I just installed +The Welkin Suite. In my opinion, it is the best development environment I have seen for Salesforce.

I am really looking forward to the mac version so I can have it on my main dev machine.
The Welkin Suite is a new Force.com IDE providing powerful features for increased development productivity and comfort. Start using it today for free!

Had some fun today. Lightning blew out my internet at home. That's after going through the surge protecter (which obviously didn't work)

During summer the lightning frequently hit either the telephone Lines, or the Little spot är grass right next to the well. Om any of this tel cases, adsl and in some cases even the router gets fried. However, since summer is thunder season, use theese modem BBQ:s as a Good reason to modernize my hardware. Since it occures mostly only once or twice every year. if life gives you grapes..

I am allergic to beans and recently found out I can have lentils. I am looking for good recipes you would be willing to share.

Coming to a theater near you...
 
Developed by scientists from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), in collaboration with Israel-based Weizmann Institute of Science, the prototype display relies on a combination of lenses and mirrors for an excellent 3D viewing experience anywhere in the movie theater.
A team of researchers has come up with an innovative display technology that could soon allow filmgoers to enjoy glass-free 3D experience.

24v vs 48v solar system? My local solar supplier said I should upgrade from my current 24v to a 48v system. He says it would be more efficient. I would be interested to know some of your thoughts on this.

Background: My current system was fried by lightning. So I am replacing the charge controller and Inverter anyway. Wondering if 48v is worth it.

Well, Volts, ohms, conductors & all that is one way of looking @ this - my perception of this situation is simple

["More Power = More Power" - who cares how it's measured ? Get More Power & Use It]

& that's the name of the game

Took this awhile ago. It was at a hotel I was staying at. Even flight status boards are being used to push Windows 10.

I saw someone wearing a t-shirt today that simply stated "Leave me alone!" I thought that is a shirt I have often needed.
