Taking Interior HDR Vertorama Shots - HDR Cookbook by farbspiel
I see lots of cool photos of interiors that are excruciatingly detailed. I guess these are called "vertoramas" since they are vertical space panoramas. Anyway, this is a neat page about making HDR vertoramas. For whatever that is worth.

Equirectangular Panorama with AutoPano Giga | Shutter Experiments
A short tutorial on creating 360° panoramas using a DSLR hand held. I have been interested in getting something like a Sigma 8mm precisely for its 180° FoV; however, this tutorial makes it seem like with a little extra work I could get similar results without another lens, which is appealing to me.

Photo Funnel: Drag-and-Drop Photo Copying Tool For Linux – Medium
Bash script for drag and drop upload of photos on Linux. Uses YAD and exiftool to import a whole bunch of photos. Now that rapid photo downloader has started to be unusable for me, I am just using a dumb bash script. This seems like a different paradigm than what I'm looking for, but I'd like to keep it around for ideas.

How to Write a Git Commit Message
Great article with git commit message tips:

1. Separate subject from body with a blank line
2. Limit the subject line to 50 characters
3. Capitalize the subject line
4. Do not end the subject line with a period
5. Use the imperative mood in the subject line
6. Wrap the body at 72 characters
7. Use the body to explain what and why vs. how

Most of this summarizes to: use the imperative in the subject line, use vim to make sure of formatting, and use the body to explain WHY!!!! So much explain Why.
