Friends, I'm finally looking into Code Signing Certificates - and the prices vary from as little as $185 USD - to as much as $499 USD / year. The question is: would you trust buying from a 'volume distributor' such as https://www.certs4less.com/ - or would you buy direct from Thawte or Verisign? or?...

Can anyone point me towards some cheap, but reliable VM hosting that would allow me to modify or customise the PHP configuration? I'm on shared hosting with Joyent and that isn't possible without upgrading to their Smart Accelerator product.

I love the 404 page on GitHub using CSS 'animation' (move your mouse anywhere on the page). I also like the Jedi mind trick reference, despite having never seen Star Wars.

This is the best Jedi mind trick I've seen documented: Derren Brown at Walthamstow Stadium racetrack

Flash on the Beach was such an amazing value this year - granted I did get an earlybird discount, but still - a free JetBrains IntelliJ Idea license (simply by posting a photo of yourself with the IntelliJ logo) - not to mention all the newfound knowledge and inspiration!

Also very nice to meet +Darscan Tyrell and +Neil Nand and catch up with +Paul Graham to form the winning Pub Quiz trivia team: Team Name.

Almost three years after its original publication, this post is making the rounds:

Key takeaway: Don't think in terms of making a slow piece of code run faster. Instead, think in terms of making it do less.

So apparently my first-generation iPod Nano is eligible for replacement from Apple. There isn't any information as to whether they'll replace it with another first-generation Nano, or one of the latest models.

As my Nano is in fine working order, I'm hesitant to replace it. It makes a fine addition to my iPod museum (four models, not counting the iPhone).

Mine too! I sent in the required repair report and they claim that they sent me a box to return it in.... BUT I have yet to see it in my mail. Hmmm. I am confused about this whole thing. Are we getting refurbished ipod's back? If so what kind?? The same Nano's or are they just fixing ours and sending them back to us?? I wish they were more clear.

So when I saw that a new German domain (com.de) was introduced this week, I thought they really missed a trick with the developer community by not also having 'co.de' domains.

Turns out some wise person registered 'co.de' a while back. Lots of great domain combinations still available.

Turns out that the co.de domains come with crappy hosting packages; doesn't seem that they'll delegate to third party name servers. Boo.

However in the resulting domain digging frenzy I ended up buying coru.co (no idea why - it's a word and it's short) and unes.co - which would be good for spam :)

I can't get any of them to run... I installed Flash 11 debug, but it shows as 10.something... Reckon there's been a cockup, somewhere.
