Just bumped into this Big Ball of Mud article by (another) Jeroen on software (this Jeroen is Jeroen De Dauw).
It is a very nice article with annotations on the (very old, but still very prevalent Big Ball of Mud design pattern of which a lot of software projects suffer).
I didn’t know about the design pattern yet, but have seen it in so many places, and even helped quite a few of them to become less big, and contain less mud. If the article and paper are tool long, you can read a WikiPedia BBM abstract.
I’m glad that the .NET/Delphi based suite of projects I landed on recently – though containing quite a bit of legacy – is different. Still a lot of improvements to be made, but it is very manageable.

Found a while ago that Brian Long wrote a few nice pages and posts on Windows keyboard shortcuts:
