TNT 1

I've titled this article TNT (Tips-n-Tricks) for a very good reason. Many times it's the small things that make the biggest difference. Usually when reading a new book or article you walk away with one good idea. This one idea could've been presented in a paragraph or two. So I got to thinking, why not just provide all those great ideas in a format that cuts out the BS? What you're left with is pure TNT, the stuff great explosions are made of.
