Adding RSS to Jekyll

Search - I added a quick and dirty Google search to the footer

Contact form - I removed the contact form and am making do with an email link

So far so good

I've been using this new setup for a few weeks now and very happy. I've found my website to be much faster and I'm paying less money. I still use Dreamhost's shared hosting for some sites and quite like their service for registering domains and managing DNS.

This was a great …

Over a year ago I ditched RSS; Techcrunch, Mashable, Smashing Mag, PSD tutorial sites, designer blogs, developer blogs... it was too much to keep up with on a daily basis, which ended up in 1,000s of unread articles.

Now there are a handful of websites I check every other day. It's much easier to keep on top of and I don't feel like I've missed out on much.

This also useful when you want to check how much virtual( VSZ) and real memory ( RSS) is used by mysqld. You can either simply run some bash script for monitoring it like

while true do date >> ps.log ps aux | grep mysqld >> ps.log sleep 60 done

Just a quick note to mention that I'm dropping the Feedburner RSS feed in favor of a regular RSS feed. I'll leave it around for some undecided amount of time, but you'll want to update your RSS readers to point to http://debu.gs/blog/feed.rss when you can. The URL has been fixed in the nav bar and in the rel="alternate" link in the head tag.

…finish line for our respective new apps. In Jared's case, he is working on a new RSS client for iOS 7 called Unread and was mentioning how his biggest hurdle remaining was integrating a variety of sharing services for the posts in a user's RSS feeds.

Luck would have it that I had been working on a similar feature already for my new app, so we decided to collaborate on something that would hopefully eliminate the need for anyone to write the same sharing code over and …

…Ember uses iCloud to sync your snapshot library between Macs, which is great. The RSS subscriptions feature is great too for tracking design trends on Dribbble . I keep feeds for each mobile and desktop platform.

FogBugz - I have been using FogBugz to manage Second Gear's support inbox and bug database for almost five years. People complain that it is an unattractive app. I disagree. It's not flashy and instead just disappears so that I can actually focus on …

Google Plus. So, if you are one of the two or three people that still follow this blog via RSS, you'll want to move to the feed at http://greg.nokes.name/feed instead of any other. I will not be shutting off the feedburner anytime soon but that day is coming.
