Who needs Ruby 2.0 right now? Not a lot.
But if for some odd reason, you need really it and have encountered some issues, I hope this helps you move on and get beyond this gibberish stuff.
There are a lot of guides written. Those may work. But if you get something like this:Continue reading »
After reading the book RabbitMQ in Action, I still found myself googling for more examples. It's a very good book in the sense that it covers managing RabbitMQ and a lot of linux system admin examples that developers should know if they will use RabbitMQ in production for their apps.Continue reading »
This is only for those who encounter the same issues. Sometimes we're not so lucky with mysql and I worked with an Australian developer who said he never got mysql installation right the first time regardless of whether he was using a Mac or Windows. I never had the same problems before until now. I am using OS X 10.6.6 and MySQL 5.5. I now feel his pain. Why is it so effin' difficult to get it "working"?Continue reading »
Why bother remembering very long commands?
There is a shell script for automatically starting, stopping and restarting PostgreSQL if you have installed PostgreSQL on /usr/local. In fact there is a shell script for nearly every redundant task for developers and Linux system administrators (even spammers).Continue reading »
I got a Peepcode unlimited last year which came with a nice video about the command line. Check it out.

I spent about 4 hours yesterday trying to get back to basic finance and tracking my own cash flows. Itâ€™s trite to do these kind of things but itâ€™s necessary. I once handled book of accounts of our business and it was frustrating in several different ways. However it was simple - it was a spreadsheet that showed cash inflows and outflows and a record of all our inventory. I have reason to believe that spreadsheet applications (Excel or its open source alternatives) are better than using â€œsimply inefficientâ€ applications that never seem to meet your needs.Continue reading »
This is a continuation of my post on installing Ruby version manager or multiple versions of Ruby for Unix. This time it's about OS X 10.6.1 or the Snow Leopard.
Snow Leopard includes Ruby and Rails by default if you install XCode. The version is 1.8.7 and 2.2.2 for each, respectively. This would not suffice for most developers because we need to start porting to Ruby 1.9 and start experimenting with Rails 3. The goal is to just keep moving forward and use the best version that exists.Continue reading »
