  4. I used to tinker with hardware a lot. Over the years I have drifted away from it. However, recently I have been getting the itch to get back to it. Larry has posted some great tips and resources for those who want to smell the scent of hot solder and warm flux.

  5. Damon has a great article up for start-ups. He offers some ideas for making disclosure easier for those who might find problems with your site or product. Responsible disclosure is always easier if there is a clearly documented method for doing so.
