This and that 2005-07-29

July in Sweden is a month when almost everyone (except me) is on vacation and Sweden takes a break for a while. However working during this period is actually pretty sweet. I get time to do things I been putting off all year, all those low priority issues.

OK, so it’s quite depressing to when all your friends are on holiday. Anyway started writing a blog post about a TDD revelation I had a while ago, but me and w.bloggar did not see eye to eye on when a save should occur so I lost it :(. So I’ll have to start over. Meanwhile here’s a few things that crossed my path in the last few weeks.

  • OfficeGuns.com – hilarious site on how to build your own pen gun with laser sight out of stuff laying around the office.
  • Testing Feasibility Matrix – Roy Osherove wrote this post on different approaches for getting legacy code under tests. Interesting! Personally I think the ”Dependency Oriented Incentive” approach is the best. But I got to say I usually chicken out because of the massive initial work effort and start with the easy parts.
  • EAP for ReSharper 2.0 started – grab your copy here! - Konfabulator is now free!
  • Nini Configuration Framework – released in version 1.0. Haven’t tried it yet but it seems pretty nifty.
