Dear Microsoft, add Notes and comments in MS Help files (chm)
Here's a feature I always wanted in help, the ability to add comments, notes, hyperlinks, FAQ. Many times, hitting F1 in an app brings me to the right context, but the information I'm “looking for” is in another subject/help chapter. And, in many occasions, I have to spend 15 minutes figuring out where that information is. Adding the help page in the Favorites is nice if you don't forget to bring thoses Favorites to your other job :) SyncIt now takes care of this Favorites synchronization ......

When it comes to building web apps or Windows apps with great look and feel, what article or book do you use as a muse/reference?

I'm a “back end” dev.  If I have to build a front end app, I would like to build something that doesn't look like, well, a back end app!

Mesh my home automation

I get up when the kids wake me up. I get my coffee fresh, once at work. Automatic coffee machine, now that's funny. Ho, and your coffee is freshly brewed every morning? The filter is changed? Water is filled up? Container is cleaned. Wow, now that's automation. At work, we use an Avalon Quad. Fresh everytime! ......

Excellent Nant article

I'm probably the last person on earth to have read this excellent Nant article, but it's just what the doctor ordered.

What a nice article!
