In this fifth part of the free font series about the various categories of typefaces, we’ll now be featuring the Monospaced Typefaces. Monospaced fonts, which are fonts whose characters have equal horizontal widths, are suitable for programming because they make source code easier to read.
More than 15 years ago Russian scientist Kirill Yeskov tried to settle certain geographical problems in Tolkien's fantasy world. One thing led to another, and he tackled a bigger project - what if we assumed that it's no less real than our world? His conclusion was that in such a case, the story of the Ring of Power is most likely a much-altered heroic retelling of a major war - but what was that war really about?
I was impressed enough by this work to spend a few dozen lunch hours translating it to English. [...] I now offer this work for your perusal.
For now Vollkorn supports English, German, Spanish, French, Scandinavian, Italian and more languages. It comes in two weights Normal and Bold (in fact, it’s a bit bolder!), each in Antiqua and Italic.
Very nice free font, available for download or for use via Google's Font API.
On Lisp is a comprehensive study of advanced Lisp techniques, with bottom-up programming as the unifying theme. It gives the first complete description of macros and macro applications. The book also covers important subjects related to bottom-up programming, including functional programming, rapid prototyping, interactive development, and embedded languages. The final chapter takes a deeper look at object-oriented programming than previous Lisp books, showing the step-by-step construction of a working model of the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS).
As well as an indispensable reference, On Lisp is a source of software. Its examples form a library of functions and macros that readers will be able to use in their own Lisp programs.

mod_pagespeed is an open-source Apache module that automatically optimizes web pages and resources on them. It does this by rewriting the resources using filters that implement web performance best practices. Webmasters and web developers can use mod_pagespeed to improve the performance of their web pages when serving content with the Apache HTTP Server.
RES provides several addons to enhance your browsing experience - each of which is configurable.
You can enable/disable any of the modules, and most of them have their own options that can also be personalized.
HTML5 Boilerplate is the professional badass's base HTML/CSS/JS template for a fast, robust and future-proof site.
After more than two years in iterative development, you get the best of the best practices baked in: cross-browser normalization, performance optimizations, even optional features like cross-domain ajax and flash. A starter apache .htaccess config file hooks you the eff up with caching rules and preps your site to serve HTML5 video, use @font-face, and get your gzip zipple on.
Boilerplate is not a framework, nor does it prescribe any philosophy of development, it's just got some tricks to get your project off the ground quickly and right-footed.
