10/14/11 Gil's LotD: Software complexity A rant on the desire to create "lightweight" open source software replacements.

9/30/11 Gil's LotD: ResExcellence The long-defunct Mac website ResExcellence has returned with its old content.

It certainly set me on the path that led me to learning everything I know about software.
