…zoom in and see the chart in detail. I think the two biggest spikes came from appearances in Peter Cooper's Ruby Weekly e-mail newsletters, and I think the spike on Dec 31 came from a tweet by Michael Feathers, despite the fact that he didn't even mention my book:

This is all just conjecture; I never even set up Google Analytics for this product. If you know anything about selling information products online at all, you'll also notice there's no email …

With this product, I wrote Peter Cooper a brief email, telling him I'd written an ebook -- but not what it was about, or even what it was called -- and did nothing else to promote the book except offer free copies to people who I had quoted in the book, and retweet people who praised the book. Peter included a link to the book in his newsletter Ruby Weekly , but since I hadn't actually told him anything about it, or given him a review copy (something I've since rectified), …

…committed to the main trunk of MRI, which is now available in 1.9.3, by Masaya Tarui. Peter Cooper reported that there are some performance differences between Masaya's patch and Xavier's for larger apps, so we can expect that battle for faster performance to continue in the 2.0.0 work!

Another production performance improvement to 1.9.3 is the change of the Garbage Collector to lazy sweep (see InfoQ interview ). The focus is improved management of short lived objects. …

A report on Ruby usage among New Relic Customers

We saw recently that our friend Peter Cooper has created a nice tutorial on moving to Ruby 1.9 called The Ruby 1.9 Walkthrough: How to Go From Ruby 1.8.7 to 1.9.2 and 1.9.3. We started to wonder how many of our customers are on 1.8 versus 1.9, then quickly (and embarrassingly) realized we hadn't published a Ruby on Rails State of the Stack Report in quite some time. Read the (overdue) report below.

Outdated, but worth a shot since it's just a one liner.

[07:00] File uploads working via curl. Now time to integrate the phase 1 code into my sinata app.

[07:06] Have something I think should work but now messing with some unexpected bugs. Drat!

[07:08] Oh, apparently I just don't know how to use curl, working now! (albiet with a little echo …
