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.

Notes on Rails and other development


Double Shot #137

Delivered another reasonably major feature today. Things are still going well on the Rails front.

Double Shot #136

So Microsoft has put out a hostile (and high) bid for Yahoo! For me, that means it's time to start making a list of new services to boycott. Flickr, del.icio.us, and Messenger would all inconvenience me somewhat to dump, but not so much that I want to get sucked back into the Microsoft fold.

Double Shot #135

Double Shot #134

Double Shot #133

Yesterday was going swimmingly until the 3-hour power failure. Felt like I was back in the sticks again.
