    Wow, what an amazing compilation of cheat sheets! I’m not familiar with half of the stuff (eg MySQL and Expression Engine’s), but the WordPress, CSS, jQuery, Prototype and Scriptaculous cheat sheets are really of great use to me. I no longer have to google like a madman for simple tutorials :) thanks!

    The Rails cheatsheets are three years/two major revisions out of date. Using them as references will cause you a lot of heartache.
