I liked Henry's post (security things interest me) and more in that series might be interesting :D Alternatively, more personal things like the Developer's personal setups, methodology (e.g. how you approach fixing things, adding things, etc.) might be kind of interesting. Getting into all of your heads a bit, in general ;)

I like the article on suggesting to PM each new user for a more welcoming feel. I'm going to start doing that now and hopefully it will return good results.

  4. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) - The great misconception.
  5. Designing your MOD :: Introduction to MODing for phpBB3.
  6. Designing your MOD :: Creating Scaleable MODs.
  7. Designing your MOD :: Creating Secure MODs
  8. Designing your MOD :: Improve your MOD’s performance
  9. How to get your MOD approved to the MOD DB faster.
  10. Why MODs don’t make it into phpBB3 Core.
  11. Optimising your SQL Queries.
  12. Installing MODs :: How do I decide what MODs to install?
  13. Installing MODs :: What to watch out for in MODs.
  14. Utilising the phpBB3 Framework to build your site. -- (will not write until after Londonvasion).
  15. 10 ways phpBB can benefit your job (for Software Engineers)
  16. Why watching phpBB 3 development is beneficial
I’ll stop there, since those are the ones that immediately came to mind.

Totally. Maybe not posted all at once, but that's why you can schedule future posts on blogs. ;)

I'm lazy and don't check my MOD support threads very often. If you need help and I'm not replying in the thread, PM me and yell.
