Things that programmers don't know but should

(A book that I might eventually write!)

Gary Bernhardt

I imagine each of these chapters being about 2,000 words, making the whole book about the size of a small novel. For comparison, articles in large papers like the New York Times average about 1,200 words. Each topic gets whatever level of detail I can fit into that space. For simple topics, that's a lot of space: I can probably walk through a very basic, but working, implementation of the IP protocol.

Setup new Mac with OSX Lion from scratch

These commands are good as of 2011-07-27.

Install Xcode 4

The download/install takes a while so start it first. When it finishes downloading you will still need to run it to complete installation.

iTerm2

Really the nicest choice for a terminal on OSX right now, especially with Lion style full screen support.
