Microsoft IIS vs Apache / Who Serves More?

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

According to a study done by Port80.com in August 2006 they found that “Microsoft IIS serves 54.9% of Fortune 1000 web sites.” I’ll be honest, I would have lost money on that; my money would have been on Apache.

Does this surprise anyone else?

The Lazy Programmer – Open Source and You

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Larry Wall (of Perl fame) once wrote in the “Camel Book” that the three virtues of a great programmer are laziness, impatience, and hubris. Out of these three, laziness is my favorite. Wall defines this as “The quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labor-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document what you wrote so you don’t have to answer so many questions about it. Hence, the first great virtue of a programmer.”

He goes on to talk about coding and documenting in such a way so as to not create more work for yourself down the road, but he never addresses how to make the initial effort easier. I want to give a few pointers as to how you might get off on a good start.
