…else. Instead of using your caps lock for evil and commenting " STILL NOT FIXED TOM . please reassign to me when it's FIXED AND READY FOR VERIFICATION . (read: do your job)" why not be nice? Why not say " Hmm...This seems to be a tricky one. I did a cache clear, reboot, and tried on 3 different computers, but I get the same error every time. These are the steps I take:" and then re-list each step you take, re-word what you did before, but add any details you think …

…"enlightened" Ruby developers, we realize how stodgy that world must have been for Tom. So when he discovered Grails, and eventually Ruby and Rails, he did what most of us would expect any Ruby neophyte to do: he went to his ( Java) development team and proselytized. "I was never able to rally enough support in the development team which was composed of all Java developers. No one wanted to learn a new language. So I ended up learning and playing with Rails on the …

Tom: How did you come up with the initial idea for this series on InnoDB for Percona Live?

Jeremy: Basically out of necessity. We did so much original research on InnoDB to build our understanding that we had to share it.

Davi: Exposing these topics to a wider audience can yield huge benefits to the community, and as the saying goes "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow".

Tom: How did you both come together on these sessions?

Jeremy: Davi and I worked together …

…enhancements or fixes and, although other folks chipped in where they could, that left mostly just Tom to handle issues.

And so, RubyForge will close down this year, having hosted over 9,600 projects with over 100,000 registered users. But more than that, I believe that RubyForge was responsible for helping to popularize a relatively young language and for bringing together Ruby programmers together in the spirit of cooperation. It was, in my opinion, the first "social programming" …

Today, we're announcing the release of a key part of our authentication infrastructure - id.heroku.com - under the MIT license. This is the service that accepts passwords on login and manages all things OAuth for our API. The repo is now world-readable at https://github.com/heroku/identity . Pull requests welcome.

While OAuth was originally designed to allow service providers to delegate some access on behalf of a customer to a third party, and we do use it that way too, …

Heroku is now using Extended Validation SSL Certificates for most of our Heroku-owned applications. This allows you to tell at a glance if an URL belongs to Heroku itself, or is merely hosted on us.

Applications in our legacy " Bamboo" stack are hosted under the heroku.com DNS domain, which has historically made it difficult for people to differentiate between Heroku-owned apps (e.g., id.heroku.com, dashboard.heroku.com) and customer applications. We believe the extra UI indication will prove useful in solving this problem.
