the Best of secretGeek

Inspired by that wacky usability guru jakob nielsen, I've put up a list of the most popular pages at secretGeek. I'm going to make this list available from the menu on the right. So come with me now as we self-indulgently dip into the archives...

  1. Award for the Silliest User Interface: Windows Search

    As seen in an actual book!

  2. How to be depressed

    Harness the power of cognitive distortion to help you get less out of life.

  3. You are NOT inadequate.

    You're not. And if you've missed out on making your fortune from Web 2.0, just forgive yourself now. Maybe Web 5.0 will be your turn.

  4. Refactoring With Whidbey

    A silly joke, as timeless as the rivalry between C# and VB.

  5. The World's Simplest Code Generator (javascript edition)

    A real tool that I recommend you use every day. (I used it to write this list!)

  6. Sexy New Development Methodology!

    TODO Driven Development. What started out as a joke has inspired a multi million dollar web 2.0 company. Probably.

  7. Excel-Lite: Hey coder! This spreadsheet's for you!

    The programmer's spreadsheet that lets you crank out twice the code in a tenth of the time.

  8. How to write a novel

    Everything you shouldn't do, but will do, when you try to write a novel.

  9. Writer's Block, Geek-Block, and Procrastination

    A technique for overcoming Geek Block

  10. Gradient Maker

    Image generator that helps you blend colours.

If you're looking for something particular at secretGeek -- use the search box at right.

If, for some sick reason, you want to read every single post, you could start with the archive.
