jQuery

Michael Mitchell presents his One-Click Upload – A jQuery Plugin

replaces the standard file input element, allowing you to use any link, image or element to be used for the purpose of bringing up the ?file browse? dialogue. It completes the upload behind the scenes without refreshing the page, making it less obtrusive and easier to style than a standard upload form

Desklight
Josh Smith shows us how to Add checkboxes to record selectors in XamDataGrid
Mike Snow shows us how to implement full screen mode. I could not get this to work in FF 3, IE 8 Beta 2 was fine though. After a little digging, I found that to get full screen mode to work in Firefox 3, you need to rename C:\Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight\2.0.30523.8\npctrl.1.0.30401.0.DLL to .OLD (or delete it) and restart firefox. This is a known Silverlight 2 Beta 2 bug (see here for more details)
