Pretend that you’ve opened this book … just to find a huge onion right in...– why’s (poignant) guide to ruby I’ll try not to quote too much from this book as I make it through. No promises.
Either people get better at using twitter or...
Twitter clients officially need better muting/hiding/filtering support. For example, I enjoy reading some of what @gilesgoatboy and @zedshaw have to say, but I can’t stand it when they use it as instant messenger all day. This type of thing happens all of the time, why aren’t there twitter clients that can handle it? People always say “make a list of people” or...
It’s a super nice day out, so naturally, I’m inside playing with hadoop… at least until the baby wakes up. It’s a lot of fun aside from the fact that the “default” hadoop images on ec2 (that is, the ones used by the ec2 tools) all create Fedora instances. I can’t imagine something more irritating than that, so good one, whoever made that call. Well, aside from having to use “yum,” and all of...
Help me test something?
I’m looking for Python (or perhaps Java) programmers to help me test something: Sweet Christ, sorry about the formatting. Posterous handles code samples much better: See this post over there.
I love that in the final blog post to joelonsoftware.com, Joel goes out on a limb to proclaim that the technology powering is latest product is, in fact, a good thing.
For work, I’m looking through some code that has been abandoned by it’s original maintainer. The only documentation is a Microsoft Word file. None of this software would run comfortably on Windows.
ack: a grep for programmers →
Pretty nice grep-like tool. Especially if you feel that grep is somehow not tailored enough for a programmers. Among it’s touted features: Command name is 25% fewer characters to type!
Hairball just got this:
git push origin master
@41414141 on the 6 stages of debugging: 1) can’t happen 2) doesn’t repro 3) shouldn’t happen 4) why is that happening? 5) I see! 6) How did that ever work? Originally Ted Roden | Comment »
These days, when I see a list of features that are coming soon, I see a list of features that don’t exist yet. So instead of “look at all this awesome stuff that’s coming,” I see, “look at all this awesome stuff you can’t do.” (Same applies for my projects). Originally Ted Roden | Comment »

First and foremost, up to this point, Hairball has been written to exist. Not to be fast or feature-rich or serve a specific purpose. It’s just intended to be something amusing that I can build. However, I’ve recently become curious about how it stacks up to other HTTP servers when it comes to performance. To figure this out, I decided to test it against the very same framework...
I Quit, or It's Open Source from now on!
Some of the formatting on this post is totally broken on the dashboard. Click through to view it as I intended. I’ve got a ton of ideas for new things to build and, having more or less just finished a large project, I’ve suddenly got a lot of energy and some time to work on these ideas. Some of them are ideas that have been building up for years and some are just simple notions that I...
PostScript printing is a good thing, it’s as old as time itself.– It’s good to have jstn back around.
I think that I was just unsuccessful at convincing someone I was a real person and not a bot.I don’t know if I should be offended because it reflects a terribly boring personality, or honored that this person thought I could create a bot that talks just like me. Originally Ted Roden | Comment »
After finishing the first draft of my book on the realtime web, I wanted to take a break and build something different. So I spun my wheels for about a week before deciding on a new project.Then it hit me, “I should write an HTTP server and simple web framework… and I should write it using… wait for it… common lisp.” It’s Hairball! It supports long polling...
