Perhaps next time I'm writing a presentation, I'll give reveal.js a try. Some of the examples looks pretty good.

git-up seems to be the Git tool I had been missing - fetch, stash, rebase, unstash for all branches.

In the wake of password-hacking-month (Linkedin, Last.fm, Yahoo, etc) Jeremy Spilman talks about an interesting idea for increasing the cost to stealing password databases, rather than just the hashing: part 1, part 2

If your application uses getaddrinfo instead of gethostbyname (for IPv6), DNS round robin will not work. Urgh. Recently found this as the cause of our Java app only connecting to half of the hosts in our AWS ELB.

Javelin JS is full of interesting little things - always fun to find out what compormises other teams make to allow their particular development model to scale. The css classes vs sigils part makes a lot of sense.
