Yup. It certainly does not like that.

Let's create a very real-world, enterprise-level, business-critical test case:

invalid_byte_spec.rb require 'rspec'

def replace_name(body, name) body.gsub(/joel/, name) end

describe 'replace_name' do it 'removes my name' do body = "hello joel"

replace_name(body, 'hank').should eq "hello hank" end

it 'clears out invalid UTF-8 bytes' do body = "hello …

The Video

Earlier this month, I pointed to TshirtOS, the smart t-shirt designed by CuteCircuit and sponsored by Ballantine's ( yup, the whiskey company) and included a video of the shirt in action. They've posted a new video which takes a little dramatic licence in order to remind us that in the right hands — or the very, very wrong ones — technology can be a gateway to adventure:

The only news for capybara-webkit this week is that Joe Ferris ( jferris , a.k.a. JƒF) does not want bug reports about system-specific compilation issues ( 6b724ef ). We simply can't fix them.

- GoToMeeting & WebX & Join.me. GoToMeeting works great for our Basecamp classes . They're all great if we have one speaker.

Yup. But I merely simplified a real world problem. As I mentioned earlier, you can see the awkwardness of this API in rack .

But now that we know about this problem, we can identify middleware that will break streaming responses. For example, Rails defines a middleware that checks connections back in to the connection pool . If our ERb in Rails was streaming, we would lose the database connection during ERb render. The same is true with the query cache in …
