Dev Bytes for 11/2/2009

The Dev Bytes are a collection of links that I’ve been sending out internally at my current employer.  There have been a few requests to make these public so I’m going to be posting these on a weekly basis.

There are just links to topics that I find interesting and hope that others will gain some value out of.  I can’t say that I read everyone but it’s something that I’ve got saved to read later when I come across a problem or issue.
