Here are a few of my favorite things. They make my life easier and more enjoyable, and I’m thankful they’re there:
- MTR - Matt’s Traceroute
is a beautiful combination of ping and traceroute that
makes pinpointing network chokepoints a breeze.
- Vim, my one true editor. Steve Oualline’s
IMproved (Vim) is chock full of instructive goodness.
- The folks who contribute to
All I do is shepherd the patches. Most of the real work is done by
people sending me code.
- CVS, without which I could
never do any real work. It’s more than just a way to keep
source code. It’s become a document distribution system for me.
Essential CVS by
Jennifer Vespermann is the best CVS book out now.
- SourceForge, for being my CVS
repository for public projects
- Mac OS X, which has
allowed me to have a solid Unix on my desktop, with a usable GUI with
support for the applications I need.
which is a godsend in desktop management.
Jesse Vincent’s great ticket-tracking system, and
rt.cpan.org, the bug-tracking system
for the CPAN.
What are you thankful for?
