It's been a good run, but my thrill for blogging has ebbed. Most of my online conversation occurs on Twitter these days, and my Buckblog has ...

  • Web services, Rails-style

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 12 Jul '14, 11pm

    Jamis, can this REST support (as well as ActionWebService::Client::XmlRpc as documented http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionWebService/Client/XmlRpc.html) be used for outbound client apps, such as allowing my Rails app to interact with other web services (like eBay, Amazon, Googl...

  • RubyConf: Day Two

    RubyConf: Day Two Posted by Jamis on October 02, 2004 @ 01:49 PM This morning started equally bleary-eyed. I just can’t seem to shake this jet lag. At any rate, I managed to shower and stumble downstairs for another exciting continental breakfast, followed by… Morning Panel Patrick Ma...

  • Inside Capistrano: the Gateway implementation

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 14 Jan '14, 6pm

    The gateway code is a bare 100 lines long, including comments. Basically, all it does is establish a connection to the gateway machine, and then for every connection established via the gateway, it forwards a port from the local host to the requested server. Then, it establishes a con...

  • Maze Generation: More weave mazes

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 03 Oct '13, 5pm

    @Jamis Don’t be sorry! I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t like puzzlers. Why do you think the twisty mazes appeal to me? :-) I did wonder about doing something like what you describe, but it seemed likely to get complicated pretty quickly. But there does seem to be a reasonably simple sol...

  • perils of programming while sick

    The perils of programming while sick Posted by Jamis on March 08, 2005 @ 01:29 PM So, I knew my turn was coming. My one-year-old daughter was quite sick about a week and a half ago, running a temperature of 106F. We even took her to the emergency room for that one, though her fever wa...

  • SwitchTower: Renamed

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 10 Apr '13, 12am

    Ryan, regarding "caving so soon and so fast," it wasn't a casual decision. We consulted an attorney, and their professional opinion was that we not fight it. True, we could have looked for a second opinion, but given that the prospect was not exactly sunny, it would have just been (IM...

  • Maze Generation: Wilson's algorithm

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 15 May '14, 10pm

    Then, we pick another unvisited cell at random and do a random walk until we encounter that first cell. Note that this random walk has a few constraints: although it can cross cells it has already walked (as long as they are not already in the maze), we don’t want to allow the final p...

  • Maze Generation: Recursive Backtracking

    weblog.jamisbuck.org 22 May '13, 11am

    Actually, once you understand this algorithm, I think the best place to go next would be to change it to a breadth-first traversal. The intuition here is that a maze is an undirected graph, and this algorithm constructs the maze by traversing that graph in depth-first order. This is d...
