    Hmmm, what other book do we know from that pile?

    ;)

    The Old New Thing: Practical Development blah blah blah Windows?

    Yay!  Non-geek content.  Knitting content. Even better.  Now if I could just get you to pick up the needles again…

    i’m not sure you can ruin a joke that’s already been told.

    If celebrity knitters "Knit 2 Together"  what do celebrity coders do?  …Code 4 Compilation…

  6. squidbot says:

    Do knitting programmers code in Purl?

  7. Sven Groot says:

    Is knowledge of knitting also one of the implicit prerequisites of this blog? ;)

  8. Jules says:

    What I want to know is has anyone published a pattern language catalogue for knitting yet?

  9. George Jansen says:

    The only celebrity knitter I can think of is J. Pierpont Finch in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

WHY DID I DUPLICATE THIS CONTENT HERE? Let me first say this site has never had anything to sell and has never shown ads of any kind. I have nothing monetarily to gain by duplicating content here. Because I had made my own local copy of this content throughout the years, for ease of using tools like grep, I decided to put it online after I discovered some of the original content previously and publicly available, had disappeared approximately early to mid 2019. At the same time, I present the content in an easily accessible theme-agnostic way.

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.
