I5 11 9 12t's Friday and that means it's time for our weekly feature where we search the Web looking for 5 interesting, funny and poignant links for developers and IT Pros.

This designer offers developers a bit of advice and suggests stepping away from the screen and thinking about your design/development issue the old fashioned way. Maybe take pen to paper and storyboard your idea first before you ever write a line of code.

Cleaning Out The Turkey Coop: Life After Getting Rid of Incompetent Employee | HP I/O

When you let that incompetent employee go, it's easy to think your problems left when the door slammed against their butt on the way out, but an incompetent employee can leave behind issues that can linger long after you revoke their security credentials.
