- CryoPID — out-of-the-box, no special set up, no special privs, no root account requirement process serialization to file under Linux. Potentially seriously cool for any number of applications.

- Why you should be using disambiguated URLs — good arguments for doing this, but there’s also a significant legacy support issue as well as some cost/benefit analysis.
