Data is more important than graphs
Easily-extensible, in case we want to measure more things
This is a really interesting tech read by our friend Julien from Superfeedr.
We've been experimenting within-house …

Ruby Bestis a book I wish I had been able to read back in 2005 and 2006, when I started learning the language. Ruby gives you near-absolute freedom; with all those options, finding your feet can take some time. "Best practices" might carry a corporate overtone in some ears, but this book comes straight from the heart of the community (unlike some of O'Reilly's other Ruby books).
Here's a Duesenberg:
Here's an ocelot:
Here's silver nail polish:
And here's a memory of Chicago in summertime 1938:
I climbed into the chair. The dwarf was slapping polish on my Stepsons. A thin stud with at least a half a grand in threads on his back took the other chair. He was wearing silver nail polish. He was reeking with perfume.
A gleaming black custom Duesenberg eased into the curb in front of me. The top was down. My peepers did a triple take.
In February 2008 we released a Visual Studio IDE for Microsoft's IronRuby. This has code colouring, code folding, a drag-and-drop form designer, integration with the Property and Events panels, the Solution Explorer and so on. We released this in the very early days of Microsoft's development of its implementation of the Ruby language for the dynamic language runtime under .NET. Initially we had anticipated a strong demand among .NET users for IronRuby which would have driven (...)
or How I simplified database.yml to avoid storing sensitive passwords in plain-text
Nobody likes putting important passwords in a plain text config file. So what are your options?
1) Use a one-time, throw-away password
I typically do this for most Rails projects that I work on (e.g. user: "acme", pass: "acme")
2) Prompt for the password
Unfortunately there are times when access is tied to a real password. On my current project, the DB password is the same as …
Physics is unimpressed by your bravado, intolerant of your negligence, and unaware of your time schedule.
Perhaps my favorite show on TV is " Modern Marvels". I particularly enjoy their series on Engineering Disasters . I'm not a real engineer, but from what I can tell, engineering is really about understanding failure points and how to avoid them. For instance, an engineer can tell you all about how much weight a block of concrete can withstand before crumbling …
Coding incan be frustrating. A lot of libraries lack the polish you might find in a solid open source library. Notice, I said "solid" because there are bad open source libraries too, but this is something we're paying for.
Here's an example from the ActionScript documentation that I find particularly funny: ActionScript 2.0
This manual describes the syntax and usage of all elements in the …
One thing that has always annoyed me very deeply is the absence of detailed analysis of astrology. There are two extremes: people who believe it without evidence, and people who dismiss it without evidence. Neither of these extremes makes use of any evidence in their process, except for anecdotal evidence. Neither of those extremes represent a scientific mindset, despite the fact that one of the extremes contains people who will laugh at astrology as unscientific. It drives me nuts, people who …
