  1. What is mathematics? (math geekery for amateurs like me):
  2. The postgres guide!  (non-official):
  3. Rowhammer (A nontechnical security article) —
  4. Malware Analysis; a much more technical article on cdorked:
  5. Scaling LinkedIn; a really nice progression (including graphics) showing a few different popular infrastructures for serving web applications:
  6. Yay videogame music (from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic — I occasionally listen to this while working):
