Hg-Git Mercurial Plugin

How awesome is this?! It was bound to happen sooner or later. Interoperability between Git and Hg (Mercurial) should be an obvious thing as they support quite similar features.

Hg-Git Mercurial Plugin: "This is the Hg-Git plugin for Mercurial, adding the ability to push to and pull from a Git server repository from Mercurial. This means you can collaborate on Git based projects from Mercurial, or use a Git server as a collaboration point for a team with developers using both Git and Mercurial."

If using TortoiseHg, the instructions on enabling the plugin are here. As dulwich is already installed with TortoiseHg, all you need to do is clone the hg-git repository and enable the extension in your mercurial.ini.

An important feature this plugin brings is the sharing of bookmarks, similar to Git branches.

"It is intended that Hg users may wish to use this to collaborate even if no Git users are involved in the project, as it may provide some advantages if you're using Bookmarks (it will transfer bookmarks on push, which Mercurial doesn't do)."

OpenWrap – A Package Management System for .NET

OpenWrap – A Package Management System for .NET

Interesting discussions going on about Open Source projects in .NET arena. Open Wrap, apart from being one of those, is an interesting idea. It is also a missing piece for .NET platform. Something Linux users are very accustomed to by now. Version management for different components (or DLL hell) is back with .NET and package managers like OpenWrap are here to ease the pain.

The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet | Magazine

Aside from an interesting opinion on the topic of WWW, the top of the page contains a chart displaying the proportion of total US internet traffic broken down by largest uses/protocols. It is obvious that the web is getting rapidly less used since the year 2000. FTP, newsgroups, email and similar rarities today resemble dinosaurs.
