    Question My personal dev blog

    Hey all!

    Well, over the past week I have been setting up a site dedicated to programming. It is early days yet, but will contain tutorials, reviews and articles on all sorts of programming.

    Here it is: http://www.dev.harrynorthover.co.uk

    In the near future, this will be moved to it's own domain and become my main blog.

    Please give me any feedback (design, articles, style of writing, etc...) or advice.

    Thanks,
    Harry!

    That's not the point of this post. The blog is about everything I know about programming and I want to write about it.

    Think about it....

    This is a totally different site to my blog...

    Harry.

    Not a fan of blogs, and not a fan of "personal websites dedicated to programming". So I voted probably not.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Depends on the blogger really. If it's a blog for an already established programming community It probably will be more helpful for me than just one person's blog. Or if the blog was geared more towards tutorial based information rather than random opinions then yes.

    I aim to post tutorials on programming (C#, C, C++).

    Thanks for the advice.

    What sort of material will you be tutoring?

    If you're going to do yet another one of these, I personally don't see the value beyond what gratification you get from writing it. The point of writing a manual is that people will read it and you're going to have to pimp the hell out of your blog to get an audience.

    After a successful try, you'll be attacked by help vampires and script kiddies who want to burn down their school because they didn't turn in their homework. Down with "the man"!

    Again though, convince yourself there is a point to what you're doing.

    I intend to write tutorials on what I feel passionate about, and also topics that aren't covered very well elsewhere. As you say, there isn't much point in writing tutorials on something that has already been covered 1000's of times...

    I waited about 15 seconds for the page to load. Nothing happened. Then I got bored and closed the tab.

    Well, Microsoft didn’t want this to happen again, so with Windows 7, they are stripping the kernel down to the bare minim. This means that the code is a lot less cluttered and that the features that have been held back by backward compatibility will make an appearance in 7.
    I don't mind a blog, but if you do one, keep it accurate.
    Microsoft will not be stripping down the kernel for Windows 7. This much is confirmed.
    And will they drop backwards compability? Again, we have no proof. Just speculation.

    Actually, they are:

    http://windows7news.com/2008/05/27/m...windows-7-yet/
    Microsoft is not creating a new kernel for Windows 7. Rather, we are refining the kernel architecture and componentization model introduced in Windows Vista
    As for backward compatibility:

    However, with Windows 7 Microsoft are approaching backwards compatibility differently, and Windows 7 will not be binary compatible with older versions
    Virtualisation will be used instead...

    It only says they are making changes to the kernel.
    They're evolving Vista's kernel for Windows 7, not stripping it down, contrary to many rumors about how Microsoft's little mini-kernel would make it into Windows 7.

    Virtualisation will be used instead...
    Oh yeah, I missed that one. Sorry about that.
    Although perhaps your blog can be a little mode detailed about that, because it simply says it won't be backwards compatible, but in truth it is, although via virtualization.

    Yes, i agree that it does need to be more detailed. I have updated it here:
