    My Rails Toolbox 13 Nov '13, 5am

    is an incredible tool for managing Rails plugins. We had troubles when deploying with svn:externals: our server would try to make too many connections to the external SVN server too quickly. As a result, the connections would die and the deploy would fail. Piston solved this issue: we...

  • Cheat! 24 Oct '13, 12pm

    I like to work at both the command line and in my text editor (JEdit). If you are using JEdit and want to access these cheat sheets right from your text editor I put together the following BeanShell script. It will execute the cheat command with the name you give it and put the output...

  • Nginx Config Like Whoa — err.the_blog 01 Mar '12, 7am

    I’ve been using Nginx (engine-x) for some time now and really digg it. So much simpler and nicer than Apache. Ezra apparently discovered the thing, a hidden Russian gem in the endless desert of HTTP servers, sometime last year. The problem I’ve been having is managing my vhosts. There...

    irb Mix Tape — err.the_blog 07 Apr '12, 9pm

    I used to make mix tapes (CDs) back in high school all the time. There’s nothing quite like spending hours upon hours picking 75 minutes worth of songs that fit together, flow nicely, and make you look cool to girls. Different types, too. Like a ‘slow song’ mix tape or a ‘punk rock’ m...
