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 Rails developer and contributor, available for long- or short-term consulting, with solid experience in working as part of a distributed team. If you'd like to hire me, drop me a line. I'm also the author of Rails Rescue Handbook and Rails Freelancing Handbook.

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.
