Multiple websites on Windows XP – links to IISAdmin. It doesn’t seem to work 100%, so caveat emptor.
Google apologizes for the Japan fiasco – in big company it is hard to enforce standards across the board, but it is nice to see the swiftness and openness of their reaction (the gist of the story is: Google came out against paid posts, but Google Japan used them to market itself) – see also Matt Cutts post about the issue.
Via slashdot: How to write a Linux virus in 5 easy steps (also the followup) – it is an low-tech high-impact type of situation, similar to the social engineering scams we see a lot of on the Windows side.
An other one from slashdot: Static analysis of the SHA3 submission’s reference implementation. Interesting read. Also, the submission Bruce Schneier contributes to had no bugs 🙂

From Abstruse Goose:
Caching Tutorial for Web Authors and Webmasters – a well written and comprehensive guide about caching on the web.

This means that you don’t have to write kernel-mode drivers anymore to support a new filesystem. It also provides an implementation for SSHFS.
Top Ten Web Hacking Techniques of 2008 – from Jeremiah Grossman’s blog. Interesting and worth checking out, because it is very probable that you’ll find some you didn’t know about.
An epic Bill Gates e-mail rant (related: No BS: A glimpse of the real Bill Gates) – the nice part about this is that the “big boss” not only understands but actually uses the product which is being made. A lot more companies could benefit from this approach!
Write in C – a funny video:
A classic piece from Charles Petzold about pregenerated code: Does Visual Studio Rot the Mind?
