After three years of working with studio lights, I thought I knew a lot about the on-camera flash. Three weeks ago, I went to visit one very experienced strobist, who told and showed me so much that I immediately understood that I have to do.
I am going to give you a list of things where you can find something new for yourself. For example, it will explain how to use some photoflash features, and if at least you can find one feature useful for you, then I will consider that my task is done well. Please note that the material is related only to the Canon cameras and its flashes in the technical parts of the special features. For other brands the general idea of using is the same, but the specifics are slightly different.
Now a lot of people write about what would happen if a web-developer decides to become a freelancer. Also, they write about some challenges that the freelancer may encounter, namely, they are hunting for new orders at first, then dealing with the influx of work, and finally overcoming own laziness. However, I still have not seen any article about what would happen if the freelancer decides to stop freelancing work that consists of the orders, prepayments, hunt for new customers, and so on.
Do I have the right to write such an article, perhaps you will decide, but I have an excuse to say that after about a year or more working as the web-developer, I started working as the freelancer on the vast web-market and was working there nearly two and a half years.
I am sick of these topical articles on how to improve performance, motivation, and other nonsense. Why do people write them? To help those who are confused about yourself or for those who cannot concentrate. I do not think so.
The modern life dictates that everything should be done quickly, in order to achieve maximum efficiency. Certainly, you need to be very successful. You need to move to the goal every day, every hour, and every minute. Leaving all the unnecessary things behind and throwing all efforts to achieve a result. Otherwise there is no point in living.
In this article I will talk about how I made a tool for photomicrography from an old digital camera and CD-ROM lens.
Perhaps, this article may not present any new or fresh ideas, besides, I'm sure you have often read something like this somewhere else. This post even does not claim the fact to be true. Its content is the fruit of my own experience, mistakes, and the knowledge that I have gotten from my colleagues. I'm sure that many people will be able to find themselves in my article. Probably, the first stage is not very typical for the programmers who are not involved in the Olympic programming, but the following stages do not independent from this factor at all.
Here are seven tools that can significantly simplify the life of a web developer, coder or designer.
This is a tool for selecting fonts. Wordmark.it allows you to see how a sentence looks like with all the fonts installed on the computer. It downloads quickly and has convenient filters. Unfortunately, there is no way to set the background color and letters.
This article describes the advanced OpenSSH features, which can greatly simplify the lives of system administrators and programmers who would like to use Secure SHell. Unlike most manuals, which explain only keys and L/D/R options, I tried to gather all the interesting features, which SSH has to offer.
Warning: The article is very long, but I have decided not to cut it into the pieces.

To be honest, I don't know what the TPP project is intended for. As far as I understand, this is a set of tools to assist in research of proteins and their interaction in living organisms. However, that's not so much important. What is important is that their source codes are open. It means that I can check them with the PVS-Studio static analyzer. Which I'm very much fond of.
So, we have checked the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline (TPP) version 4.5.2 project. To learn more about the project, see the following links:
Today, I am going to talk about how you can hide the “spare" assembler commands in the regular code. This method is useful for complexity of disassembling the code, especially if the generation of "hidden" commands to automate. Tools: debugger - OllyDbg.
Today, I would like to talk about Firefox add-ons for the web development that can extend the browser’s core functionality, because I believe that these add-ons are very important for any web developer and web designer.
Many of these add-ons you already know!
Let's start with the most popular and powerful a wed development tool:
