Be sure to check out the stuff under "Public Resources"--lots of content there.
Hamsters and rangers everywhere, rejoice!
Taking the idea of shipping a program compiled with all the required libraries to a whole new level.
It sometimes makes me wonder how history will judge us.
A valuable linux resource even if you're not using Gentoo.
Ancient, pretentious, and far from comprehensive, but still quite entertaining. :)
Really good idea; I know I've wished for something like this before. Sadly, all the stupid query questions would be infinitely more tolerable if the same people didn't suffer from an inability to pose intelligent english queries.
Government standards for computer security, replacing the orange book and similar.
Alas, and here I thought I had a semi-original idea...
>>> import filesystem
>>> fs = filesystem.Filesystem()
>>> home = fs.home.kragen
Well, you get the idea. Throw in transparent support for sockets, pickled-object files, object-ized representations of XML files, and all that stuff, and you've got something bearing resemblance to the orthagonal persistence from Unununium.
Besides a few interesting blogs, MSDN blog searches are often more fruitful than trying to search the entire MSDN.

Whoa. Whoa. People are reading way too much into the utility of this site. I suspect it's popular for the same reason that the entirely useless Automatic complaint-letter generator and English-to-Pirate translator are popular.
Smart pirates run mathamatical calculations on their setup to squeeze the best out of every aspect of their ship. Capacitor recharge rate, shield regeneration rate, damage per second compared to burst damage per minute. Module comparisons, out-of-box planning, instincts, and continual testing eventualy mold soft pilots into ruthless pirates. However far too many pirates forget a common and important attribute of their trade: Fear.
Fear is what makes the victim's heart skip a beat, hesitating slightly.
Fear is what brings the victim's mind to a sudden sprint, frantically processing the information in a blur of confusion.
Fear is what buys a pirate a second here, a second there, in order to turn a close-call fight into an overwhealming display of tactical superiority.
Didn't perform so hot in my tests (feed it at least a paragraph). Such a tool can be really handy though and I can't think of any better alternatives.
The ideal way of resolving the two views [procedural and OO] would be to have a language that provides a set of simple primitives from which all good programming styles can be efficiently supported. This has been repeatedly tried but not-in my opinion-achieved.
Blah, blah. Uninspired. See How to 0wn the Internet in Your Spare Time instead.
Where's the unicode love?
Interesting lists but where are the etymologies?!?
This would be cool if it worked better (although the fault could lie with my school interfering). I'll have to try robertb's suggestion of accessing it through my own DNS server (which I was meaning to set up anyway thanks to said school's flaky DNS servers). Neat how it got started from a kuro5hin.org article though.
I passed up on the complete TA collection for $6 once. Worst buying decision ever. Fortunately there are friends and daemon-tools.
