Direct Link and Mirrored Here, from March 25, 2011: The key point to remember is that in order to ensure that an operation / implementation is RESTful, these methods must be used as they were defined in RFC 2616, the HTTP 1.1 specification.

The caps on these newly designed keys are different than previous generations and MacBooks, so before you break out your splunger and start popping and caps-locking, you’ll want to read the following […]Read more "Keyboard 2: Dvorak Bugaloo"
The WP Chosen plugin tames the power of WordPress’s filters, settings, and options with the simplicity and versatility of the Chosen jQuery library.
