trms links #3

  • Music for Programming – a nice collection of tunes to program, study, or write to. I’ve found a small number of them to be sort of distracting, but overall great collection. They also provide a torrent file to download them for offline consumption.
  • OneTab Browser Extension – I don’t know how this extension didn’t come under my radar before. It takes all of your open tabs and makes a list of links, this list being in a tab itself. You can then reorganize these lists and even share them with people. Totally recommended.
  • Wikipedia – Random Featured Article – Wikipedia’s ‘random’ function is great to discover novelties, but most of the times you’ll just get a maybe paragraph-long, underdeveloped article. With this link, you make sure your random query only picks from featured articles. Here’s also a link for good articles.
  • David Seah’s Compact Calendar – I’ve been using this calendar for four years. As the new year comes around, you need a calendar. And sure, the one on our computers is great for day-to-day business, but you also need (I think) a holistic view of the year to come. This is where this calendar comes into play. It fits in a letter-size/A4 piece of paper, and it’s a great way to take a look at the year as a whole.
