Looking for placeholder text

Are you tired of the typical lorem ipsum placeholder nonsense? The you should check out Picksum Ipsum. It allows you to generate paragraphs of text from some of Hollywood’s best actors such as Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood and Jim Carrey.

Some of my favorite GitHub repos

I love Github and the concept of open source software. I find myself using these projects on a daily basis so I decided to compile a list and share them with you:

  • ServiceStack – Super fast .NET web services platform. 
  • RestSharp – One of the best .NET REST clients.
  • Ninject – .NET dependency injector.
  • GitIgnore – A compilation of default gitignore files based on frameworks, languages and IDEs
  • Twitter Bootstrap – In my opinion the best CSS framework.


Although these project aren’t located on GitHub, they should be mentioned:

  • ASP.NET Web Stack – Microsoft decided to open up the .NET framework to the open source community, although you might not contribute to this project, it does offer insight into whats coming in the next version of .NET.
