Caffeinated Coder A Grande, Triple Shot, Non-Fat Core Dump by Russell Ball Caffeinated Codeys
Rory's Minions Rout Canucks in a Landslide
]]> The 2007 Caffeinated Codey Showdown is officially over and the votes have been tallied. Despite an early lead by the Canadian contingent (Justice Gray and D'Arcy Lussier), Rory Blyth rallied the troops and surged ahead to win both the Best Blog Humor and Most Fun with Multimedia categories in a landslide. Justice still dominated in the Best Post Title category and the anonymous ALT.NET Pursefight blogger edged out Fake Steve Jobs to claim the title for Best Technical Satire. Congratulations to ......

2007 Caffeinated Codey Final Showdown
The regular panel of judges used to select the monthly Caffeinated Codey winners are all far too hung over to competently decide the overall winners for the year, so I've decided to let the nominees fight it out pollDaddy style and then actually award the survivors real prizes for a change. Rules I have selected 4 categories with 5 nominees per category. All the nominees were either previous Caffeinated Codey winners or else featured in one of my review posts this year. For now, all of the categories ......

The August 2007 Caffeinated Codey Winners are...
Welcome to the 2nd installment of the monthly Caffeinated Codey awards. As I mentioned in the first installment, the lucky winners will receive a caffeinated or alcoholic beverage of their choice if we should ever meet. Of course, when when I first made the offer I assumed this was mostly an empty threat, however it looks like this opportunity could present itself next month for at least five of the winners since Ayende Rahien, Justice Gray, Scott Bellware, David Laribee, and Jeremy Miller are all ......

The July 2007 Caffeinated Codey Winners are...
It occurred to me today that the techie blogosphere will never truly be mainstream until it has it's own version of Oscars and Emmies that recognizes the truly memorable blog posts. In the spirit of blogo-democracy, I thought I would just kick-start things myself by creating my own award which I will call the 'Caffeinated Codey" (it's my award so I get to pick...). The lucky recipients of these awards will not only be rocketed into certain geek stardom by the increased exposure that I provide through ......
