  • Google Groups 2 Beta - New interface, Yahoo Groups style mailing lists and more…

  • Double Check Locking Pattern in .NET&nbsp_place_holder;- Brad Abrams has a new way to do it… but he’s not sure if you should or not.

  • WTL Released to SourceForge - Another MS codebase released to open source. Keep it coming.

  • BASIC Computer Games - I can’t believe I typed all these damn things in back when I was a kid. I can’t even read the code now… no whitespace, terrble readability. Oh those were the days. I’m still convinced that I learned to debug dealing with this stuff. [via The Daily Grind 372]
