OSWD: Two Designs

Open Source Web Design
If you're mainly a programmer, but would love to turn out sites with a bit more fit and finish, this site is for you. They provide packaged “site designs” which include sample HTML, css and images in a ready-to-download zip file. Lots of styles to choose from, and frequent new additions make it very helpful.

MySQL Performance Blog
This is one of those sites/blogs that you find while researching one topic, and then just keep reading and reading. Tons of well written, informative and helpful entries. Great discussion in the comments and on the attached forums.

The post that first sucked me in was Why MySQL could be slow with large tables ?

Benchmarking [php] magic
A great entry that considers the cost of many of the new features in the PHP5 object model. Also situated on another great blog that's worth adding to your feed collection.

Amazon SimpleDB
A very interesting addition to their much talked about Web Service suite, SimpleDB provides a database (or directory service) in their computing cloud, along side S3, EC2 and others. With a pay-as-you-go model and some interesting features, this is the kind of environment that is sure to foster some awesome new projects.

Brady Forrest provides a great overview of the product and pricing on O'Reilly Radar.
