Maintaining and synchronizing software translations is a hassle: Rails uses YAML files for texts, but translators do not. linguist changes that by connecting developers and translators.

Antonio Cangiano posted a new round of Ruby Shootout statistics, this time focusing on Windows-compatible Ruby implementations. He tested MRI 1.8.7, 1.9.1, 1.9.2 dev, JRuby 1.5.1, and IronRuby 1.0. And, according to his tests, JRuby is certainly worth more than a quick look.
Concerned that the Rails 3 beta will somehow contaminate your development machine's gem installations? Don't be! Use RVM and start sharpening your skills on Rails 3.

Embed.ly tracks over 100 domains and properly converts your URL (to YouTube, Viddler, Twitter, and more) into proper HTML embed tags for your immediate use.
If you're in a battle against the bots, drop those CAPTCHA images and get on the simple question and answer bandwagon. It makes people feel smart and it's quick and easy to implement.
