Recent stuff, some technical, some musical.

How to be a programmer. The inimitable Leon provides a handy flowchart of how to program. Now with animation!

ASP.NET MessageBox. A MessageBox class you can call in ASP.NET code that shows a javascript alert box.[1]

How to Write a Fugue. Danielpi's video turns Britney Spears into Bach. (Sort of.) Dig the bowtie(s).

On a similar musical note (haha), Pachelbel's Canon, power-rock style. Version by arranger here. If this is your kind of thing, try searching YouTube, omg.

And another: Rollerblade bottle tune guy. Mozart on wheels.
