Creating SVG vector graphics for maximum browser compatibility
Pixel density is now a thing and SVG is well supported in all major browsers. Give SVG a chance. http://voormedia.com/blog/2012/10/creating-svg-vector-graphics-for-maximum-browser-compatibility

Matt P has found something questionable over on MSDN
Ever heard of a tri-state boolean with 5 possible values, 3 of which are unsupported? I hadn't until a few minutes ago. Details located at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa432714(office.12).aspx. Another one to file under the sick-and-wrong category.
Here's another link - this time one to file under the "impressive" folder:

Renaming indexes in ActiveRecord:
One of the things I found which is available from Rails 3 is the rename_index method.
So if you have changed a column name which you are indexing on simply add the following to your migration
rename_index :table_name, 'old_name', 'new_name'
Please note: this may also work with symbols! I haven't a clue!
