Cory Ondrejka talk on SecondLife (direct link into MSR Gaming Resource Kit)
A great talk given by the creators of SecondLife covering how it works and how it fits into the industry and society. A must-see talk, well worth the time. Extremely highly recommended!

Dave Remba's DirectX demo code
This is updated code that supercedes the managed C# demo code in the MSR Gaming Resource Kit by Deve Remba (DevelopMentor). This includes both VS.NET 2003 and VS.NET 2005 projects and more demos. Very nice demos of spining teapots, carousels, and rolloer coasters. Lousy OOP design though (Remba even admits as such).
