Make Other Web Sites Drive Up Yours: Do-it right!
by Wes Peterson

Having lots of other web sites host links to your site is a great way to make search engines regard your site as important, or relevant.  It helps ensure high visibility for your site when Internet visitors use search providers to find content related to your site.

There are several ways to accomplish this, but you must tread carefully: The wrong techniques can backfire - with serious consequences.

IT Water-Cooler for Power-Users topic (classic post):
Work Ethic v2: Attention Control
by Wes Peterson

Work Ethic v1 was about working hard, and working long. Straw-boss managers tried to boost productivity by cracking the whip. And it worked, up to a point, in certain sectors.

In recent years, the concept of "working smarter, not harder" has gained acceptance. It is, howver, just the harbinger of Work Ethic v2.

Work Ethic v2 is about an always "on" work force: People that have mastered control of attention, and are gratified by being in "the now."

Here we talk about how to get there.

FAQ of the Month: VBScript
Question: What does VBScript stand for?

Answer: VBScript is short for Visual Basic Scripting. VBScript brings scripting to a wide variety of environments, including Web client scripting in Microsoft Internet Explorer and Web server scripting in Microsoft Internet Information Service. It is used in Visual Basic, Access, Word, Excel, ASP, etc.
Language Basics Topic:
Tip of the Month

Short-circuit evaluation is a feature of most languages where once an evaluation evaluates to False, the compiler evaluates the whole expression to False, exits and moves on to the next code execution line. The ASP Classic if statement does not support short-circuit evaluation but you can mimic it. Use either an if..else if..else if statement or nested if statements. ASP code that makes use of this technique is frequenlty clearer and easier to maintain than the short-circuit equivalent.

Editor's Final Word

Quote from Shaw

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
