YUI 2.4 released
The YUI library from Yahoo sees another big release in its 2.4 release.
I'm looking forward to implementing this one on our sites. We have been using the calendar widget quite alot on our backend systems (building confference administration system requires quite alot of date entry stuff), but we have also implemented other parts.
I'm happy that the calendar widget now has a year selector, which was something that was making entering a date like 20/5/1976 hard; you'd have to click through 12*31something months...
For those who don't know YUI, or haven't looked at it, do it. The documentation of the YUI libraries is great; good api docs, nice cheatsheet pdfs and great videos with experts from Yahoo but also from outside Yahoo, like Peter Paul Koch (PPK).

Resetting local passwords on Windows
At work we had a problem with a pc where somehow the local administrator account was not accessible anymore, we didn't know the right password or something else was up.
Luckily I found this application: Offline NT password and registry editor, which is a very cool linux bootdisk which can edit your registry, either to reset passwords, or to make other changes.
When changing a user, it offers good documentation and nice menus, which in our case found that the admin account had been locked, and it offered to unlock it and to reset all counters for it, and some other nice automated tricks.
Be aware of the catch that encrypted files for that user are not readable after this trick, but other then that it's a very useful tool.

Conversations with the X/HTML 5 team
There is an interesting interview with the X/HTML 5 team overhere.
The things I'm most hoping for will end up in the final spec are the improved input elements and the datagrid, but that might be because for those two I can most clearly envision how they will improve my work as a webdeveloper (less client side scripting needed, hurray!). It would not surprise me that in the end the things that mean less to me now will change the web most, like the vague activex component some company from Redmond introduced for their Outlook webclient, which now is the foundation to AJAX.

Help; Can I see what rendering mode Internet Explorer uses?
I'm trying to build sites that will work in both Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and in more standards compliant browsers. It helps alot if Internet Explorer is not using Quirks mode for those sites, but I can't find where I can see what mode it uses, and thus I'm never really sure about the mode it has chosen to render.
Does anyone know how I could find that out?

Nice photography course for free
I've found this nice free photography course on digg. I've ran into another nice course, written more towards the digital slr's from Canon, but this is a good general course. (now where is that other course)
