I'm obsessed with simplicity and I'm making Browserling​ as simple to use as possible. I just added the simplest possible way to link to a website and load it in Browserling:

http://www.browserling.com/b/URL

For example:

http://www.browserling.com/b/http://www.digg.com

This loads digg.com in a Browserling session immediately.

Many other usability and user interface improvements coming soon!

I just added Imgur support to Browserling's Bug Hunter tool.

What is bug hunter? Bug hunter is the quickest tool to report issues on someone's website. Just load the website in Browserling, click bug hunter, add annotations and upload the screenshot to imgur or send it by email. It's awesome. Try it out at! www.browserling.com

I've found the perfect headphones for programming and concentration. Bose QuietComfort 25. I'll be sticking with these headphones for years now. I just wrote a quick blog post about them, if you're interested in hearing more:

My white kitty also approves my QC25s. She says they help her at her work at catching mice too. (When I'm not using them.)

I just added a tiny new feature to Browserling​ (www.browserling.com). You can now easily create and share a link to your browser. The new feature is available for free and paying users and is located in Tools - Share URL.

My blog catonmat.net just turned 8 years old. When I started all I had was a dream to build a popular programming blog. I worked hard and now my blog gets a ton of visitors. Hard work pays off and dreams come true.

I just published a blog post that summarizes last year at catonmat:

http://www.catonmat.net/blog/eight-years-of-blogging/

Quick summary: During the last 12 months catonmat had 1.3 million visitors and 1.6 million page views.

Happy birthday catonmat!

I just added a new feature called Bug Hunter to Browserling (www.browserling.com).

Bug Hunter lets you quickly pinpoint and report design issues on your website. It's the quickest way ever to tell someone their site is broken.

Click the bug icon in Browserling to try it out!

A little less than a month left until The Little Prover will be released. I haven't been this excited about a book for a long time. I've a feeling this book will make it to the top of my favorite books. I love the Little Schemer series. I pre-ordered my copy a month ago. Get yours too!

I just published the 2nd part in my top 100 programming books article series!

http://www.catonmat.net/blog/top-100-books-part-two/

Focusing on practical and theoretical books this time because as Knuth says. "The best theory is inspired by practice; The best practice is inspired by theory."

If you haven't yet, share your favorite programming, science and computer books in the comments. Let's see if our lists match.
Second part of my top 100 programming, software development, science, physics, mathematics and computer books. Knuth's Selected Papers on Computer Science, To Mock a Mockingbird, The Seasoned Schemer, Expert C Programming, Lovasz's Combinatorial Problems and Exercises.

Attempting to overclock my Intel i7 4790k to 5Ghz. Trying out several top thermal pastes:

Phanteks PH-NDC (8.2 W/(m·K)))
Noctua NT-H1 (8.4 W/(m·K))
Prolimatech PK3 (11.2 W/(m·K))
Liquid metal Indigo XS Xtreme (40 W/(m·K))

Not sure which will do best. Liquid metal is pita to apply and clean up. Will start with that and see what the temps are.

Got my tools ready too - lint free wipes, Arcticlean thermal material remover & surface purifier, and 99% Isopropyl.
