What I'm doing to become a better developer ....
It's been a while since Justice tagged me in his How I am becoming a better developer, part 1 of infinity post. I've gone through some personal issues lately but now I feel ready to publicly post what I'm doing to make myself a better developer.

[reposted] I've only been reading Justice's blog for a few months now and I find both Grey's Matter and Rory's Neopoleon very entertaining.

Should retail web sites be as accessible as their actual stores?
[reposted] Retailer giant Target is facing a class-action lawsuit regarding the inaccessibility of their web site for users with disabilities.

Free icons for use in your apps
[reposted] D'Arcy posted about free old school gaming icons from the Icon factory for your desktop. I'm a gaming geek from the 80's so this brought back some extra special memories. I'm no artist so finding sources of icons is worth noting. Besides the Icon Factory the other site I've found with both free and commercial icons is GlyFx and both sites have great quality images. [UPDATE: Via The Daily Grind #965 Mike mentioned another site,, where they have a free set of core ......

Visual Studio 2003 Visual Basic.NET - start here with Compiler MessagesAnother option ......
