Good guides for those that need a quick dive:
Wikipedia: CIDR notation. Terse. Without understanding of IP addressing and subnets worthless. So the following give a better big picture:
Cisco: IP Addressing and Subnetting for New Users
MediaWiki’s guide to blocking ranges: Help:Range blocks
Yahoo! Small Business Help: What is CIDR?
Microsoft: Understanding TCP/IP addressing and subnetting basics

Past few weeks I’ve been getting to my garage and plugging in here and there. Becoming re-acquainted with an old friend.
Speaking of that, I’ve been spending the past day transferring old recordings of myself jamming with friends and bands from long ago from cassette to my computer.

Breaking down to individual songs will take a bit.
At work props go to Michael Bevilacqua-Linn and his great brown bag on Clojure. I think it helped a few of us not only get exposed to Clojure, but Lisp as well.
Here are some great starting points for the procedural-biased:
defmacro: The Nature of Lisp – absolutely fantastic. Uses Java and XML examples to help bridge the conceptual divide.
Ward Cunningham’s WikiWikiWeb: LispUsersAreArrogant entry.
Steve Yegge’s Lisp is not an acceptable Lisp
Stuart Sierra: Clojure is a Lisp worth talking about
News and Blog: Getting it
Steve Yegge: Emergency Elisp
Me? I have a lot of practice ahead of me to become proficient, but since Emacs is my editor, it comes naturally.
hetland.org: Instant Hacking – very fast introduction to the language and even programming in general.

The Official Python Tutorial – more thorough starter – take a day or so to go thru it and absorb.
Code Like a Pythonista: Idiomatic Python – a must read sooner or later.
Yahoo!’s Python Developer Center – full of info and good links.
