Whew, 300 of these? In other news, we just hired a PA so as to shift towards a higher ratio of billable work to outsourced work. This means I've got more hours to sell, again.

4AM continues to be my quietly productive time this week.
- Automatic Rails at Slicehost - Setup script from FiveRuns.
- This Week in Rails - The latest goings-on around the community. I was tickled to see that I got mentioned.
- Rails is for Developers, Django is for Designers, Part 1 - Wow, flamebait. (Though the author says that's not his intent).

Early mornings are the most peaceful time around here. Which may explain why I'm awake at 4AM.
- CouchDB with Rails - The latest screencast from PeepCode. CouchDB has been on my radar for a long time but I haven't had a good excuse to use it yet.
- Reminder Tests - Dan Manges suggest some novel uses for automated tests. Well, novel to me, anyhow.
- Cucumber - Plain-text BDD tool that's an alternative to RSpec stories.
- turled - The "look up Twitter users' web sites fast" script has turned into a whole site, complete with my Ubiquity command.

I think the ActiveRecord Associations Guide I wrote may actually be finished.
- Exceptional - This online error-tracker for Rails apps is now in open beta.
- Is Your Rails Application Safe? - If you're inadvertently allowing mass assignment, probably not.
- MysqlTableSyncer - Command-line tool to synch up two MySQL tables.
- turl - My contribution to a little scripting fest on Twitter yesterday. If you have FF3 + Ubiquity, you can use "turl <userid>" to go straight to a Twitter user's web site.
