In an effort to provide you ever more information about your servers, NewRelic now employs the researchers formerly associated with the CIA's 'remote viewing' program. Select customers will now see a 'clarvoyant eye' on their dashboard that will show them future events on their server so they can plan accordingly. Going to run out of disk space next June? Is the data center going to have a router failure next Saturday at 2:36 am? You can now plan ahead rather than being woken up by your pager. Well, maybe not, but it sure feels like it sometimes. NewRelic now offers three kinds of monitoring in one tool - Real User Monitoring, Application Monitoring, and Server monitoring. If there is a piece of data to collect someplace between the seek time of the hard drive and your user's chair, NewRelic can get it for you.
A couple of near misses this week - with asteroids and code alike. A big vulnerability was found in the dev branch of Ruby itself. It never made it into production, but understanding what happened is important and educational.
Google searches as a 'security circumvention device'? Maybe we should shut them down! This code shows how useless md5 hashes really are.
Have you ever done a major reorganization of a rails app, only to wonder if you now have dead routes in your routes file? traceroute can help.
Maktoub is a simple newsletter engine for rails. If you're comfortable dealing with your own mailer, and want to send newsletters to your users, this code can make it cheap and easy.
Thanks to friend-of-the-show John McCaffrey who wrote in to let us know the Windy City Rails videos have been posted and are available for your viewing pleasure. I laughed, I cried, they were better than Cats.
Tim Peyton's gem Absurdity is a great way to run a/b tests of content on your website.
Jose Valim tweeted yesterday that Devise 1.5 will be released this weekend. check out this changelog to see if you want to spend your weekend upgrading.
On December 3rd, Corey Haines is organizing a Global Day of Code Retreat - around the planet, volunteers are organizing and attend code retreats. Has anyone thought to see if the Guness Book of World Records wants to set a record for the number of 'Game of Life' implementations coded on any one day? And in a feat not attempted since 1985 when Phil Collins played in two venues for Live Aid, (or perhaps since Superman saved Lois Lane by making the Earth rotate backwards) Corey hopes to attend two code retreats at the beginning and end of the day, thanks to the time travel caused when travelling against the Earth's rotation and over the international Date Line.
Ruby5 is released Tuesday and Friday mornings. To stay informed about and active with this podcast, we encourage you to do one of the following:
In this episode we fail to conquer the most difficult name to pronounce EVER. All while discussing Bundler 1.1 (not out yet), Railsyard CMS, Cells, RSpec configuration, Likeable by Gowalla, and Email Validation.
Josh Clayton’s blog post, “Design Patterns in the Wild: Null Object” … Santiago Pastorino’s blog post, “Ruby 1.9.3 and ruby-debug” … Gemnasium, a gem version tracker … OmniAuth 1.0 … Russ Olsen’s Ruby Reading List … GitHub Enterprise
Ruby 1.9.3 is the big story this week but we follow it up with an appraisal of config_fun and cucumber drama in Aruba, all while filming a Mockumentary and Spin-ing faster tests.
Manage your Heroku app over SMS, run a local git server with ghoul, building awesome command line apps in Ruby, controlling URLs with Domainatrix, faster rspec tests, no more bundle exec'ing, and the open source release of Hubot!
