programming without design!

hi all,

a while back there was a post that had links to programming without lots of upfront design or being slave to particular approaches.  if somebody could post those links again that would be helpful.  the post had this link but others too:

Is it just me or is that yellow / left side of the screen thing hard to concentrate on?

I know Don Norman works with Jakob Nielsen, but does he have to design his site like him too?

nope not this.  it was written by a 'mere' programmer, very easy to follow and you came away with a sense of power after reading it.  damn! i cant remember what he said too!  hate myself for not bookmarking it!  anybody else.

thanks for these links though.  isnt this a nice way to get more and more info on what u r looking for? :)

sleightly off topic but isys makes a search engine that indexes your cache. Maybe you can turn it up in there. It's called "Isys Hindsite." I know it's saved my ass a few times.

Or maybe just searching your Temporary Internet Files folder or browsing your history...
