Interesting Finds (a la Jason Haley)

I enjoy the frequent 'Interesting Finds' posts on Jason Haley's blog,
and so am putting up some of mine.

Keith Brown - Microsoft's fragmented Kerberos story
How Constant Are Your Constants in .NET found link through

Sahil Malik - 21st Century Slave Labor - in the United States of America on the H1B program

Jason also is moving to run non-admin, and has done a series of posts on keyboard shortcuts in Visual Studio. I wonder how many will break in Whidbey?
Days 21-25
Days 16-20
Days 11-15

He also asked about a Hex editor. I like the following free one: Freeware Hex Editor XVI32
It was written in Delphi by Christian Maas. It has not been updated since 2003 but still works great. He has including a scripting facility for macro and other neat features. It does write to an INI config file, that you as user need rights to. Since I run as non-admin, I had to make an adjustment for that.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
