Hanselman's Newsletter of Wonderful Things: February 26th, 2013
I have a "whenever I get around to doing it" Newsletter of Wonderful Things. Why a newsletter? I dunno. It seems more personal somehow. Fight me.
Still, it's one more site to check and it's a hassle for some of you Dear Readers. Therefore, I will still do the newsletter, but I'll post each newsletter to the blog some weeks later.
You can view all the previous newsletters here. You can sign up here Newsletter of Wonderful Things or just wait and get them later on the blog, which hopefully you have subscribed to.
Here's the LAST newsletter, delay-posted as I do.
Thanks again for signing up for this experiment. Here's some interesting things I've come upon this week. If you forwarded this (or if it was forwarded to you) a reminder, you signed up at http://hanselman.com/newsletter and the archive of all previous Newsletters is here.
