…ten times the effort to fix a single issue in Stacker that it's going to take Sam. And the odds are that even that is not enough to appreciate the internal coherency of the system, which means that the fix is likely to be a butcher's job, and Sam will have to rewrite it afterwards anyway.

When Sam saw these requests he was very perplexed, because his app doesn't make any AJAX requests. Where are these requests coming from? If you search for some of the listed domains, you'll find that many of them are, or are suspected of, being malware-related. Our best guess is that these AJAX requests are made by malware extensions in the visiting users' browsers.

You may notice as well that the throughput in requests per minute (rpm) is very small — much smaller than …

…an anniversary announcement. Like Jeff celebrating 6 years this month, Sam celebrating 8 years and Ann 3 years last month.

We ultimately want 37signals to have the potential of being the last job our people ever need. When you think about what it'll take to keep someone happy and fulfilled for 10, 20, 30 years into the future, you adopt a very different vantage point from our industry norm.

Sam Stephenson back in early July for our first walkthrough of phone verification. Hearing Sam talk about "creating a verification profile" or "completing a verification challenge" familiarized me with the terminology and flows that would be helpful descriptors in my bug reports. Here's what the notes look like from that first conversation with Sam.

Step 2. After the introduction I'll dive right into clicking around in a staging or beta environment to …
