A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time software developer: most of my time in recent years has been spent writing Rails, though I've dabbled in many other things and like most people who have been writing code for decades I can learn new stuff as needed.

As of October 2016, I'm not actively looking for my next job, but I'm still happy to chat about potential opportunities. I'm not able to relocate, so unless you're in the Evansville area, I'd need a completely remote gig. I have lots of experience working remote. Prefer full-time but I wouldn't be averse to an interesting contact gig. Drop me a comment if you've got something or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Double Shot #467

Back on a reasonably early morning schedule. Hopefully I can catch more than worms.

  • Adobe BrowserLab - Adobe hosted service for cross-browser testing. It didn't work on the test page I threw at it, but maybe you'll have better luck.

  • ClickTale - Serious in-page web analytics. I might have some use for this in the future.

  • Joe - Thor scripts to simplify releasing gems to RubyForge.

  • Auto timeout sessions in Rails - Just like banks and stuff use to turn off your browser session.

  • Security Problem with authenticate_with_http_digest - Yeah, Rails had another security issue. It's hardly the worst one ever. I'm very amused by Hacker News trying to get the mob together with pitchforks for this one. (Full disclosure: I'm partially responsible because I passed on the original documentation to the blog entry without spotting the error. Guess I'd better go shoot myself for that.)

ClickTale looks really interesting... especially for the first month after the launch of a product.
