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.

Currently I'm unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Maybe I Don’t Need to Learn Liquid After All

Paul Ingles' Relative Dates with Scribbish in Mephisto proved to be just the tweak I needed for now. Thanks!

Rails Help

There are a couple of ways to get help for Rails online, but sometimes you just want to have it at your fingertips. Looks like Delynn Berry has you covered: hop over and download the Rails CHM Documentation , freshly updated for 1.2.1.

Subversion Monitoring Service

Found this one via Mike Clark's article on Piston. Subtlety takes the URL of a public Subversion repository and creates an RSS feed of changes for you, so you can monitor what's going on with that project. A sweet way to have one less place on the net that you have to visit, and one more piece of information in your own hands whenever you want it.

More on Piston

Mike Clark has a good writeup at Managing Plugins with Piston . So far I'm liking what little I've done with Piston myself. Indeed, I may even find some use for it in my Windows corporate life.

It's nice to see this Mephisto Theme Gallery (via HappyCodr)
