    Is there a single media outlet, professional or amateur, left that doesn’t get their content from Fark.com?

  2. This was on Fark?

    The fact that I might link to something that’s also linked to by Fark is just convergence. I don’t bother reposting Fark links since I figure everybody has seen them by now.

  3. James Schend says:

    I guess to be fair that almost everything’s on Fark anyway. It’s hard to beat a casual network of tens of thousands of newshounds.

    Knitting is so relaxing, it’s the perfect antidote to post-collision jitters!

    How is it that you always find the most interesting knitting news?

The information provided by Raymond's blog is, for all practical purposes, more authoritative on Windows Development than Microsoft's own MSDN documentation and should be considered supplemental reading to that documentation. The wealth of missing details provided by this blog that Microsoft could not or did not document about Windows over the years is vital enough, many would agree an online "backup" of these details is a necessary endeavor.
