I was setting up a new git repository (more on that in a later post) and I was using a wrong author, so the name was wrong on all the commits. I googled around and found this command which allow you to basically rename all the authors: It’s deep in dirty-commit-territory, so if there are [...]

This is awesome for all Vimsters out there. A guy named Michael Pohoreski seems to have had a similar problem to almost every other vim user/beginner out there. He couldn’t find a good vim cheat sheet, so he made the mother of all cheat sheets. It’s damn ugly, but pretty good:
As a big fan of the text editor vim. I’m also a bit of a newbie and I’m constantly seeking out some new stuff to learn. Either some key combination I didn’t know, some nice nifty plugin to help out, etc.
That’s why I’m excited about this possible online vim conference. It hasn’t been planned properly yet and I believe he/they are still seeking people to participate and help. If you’re interested you should check it out.
I ran into this post on HN today. It’s from a guy who often gets brought in to help teams refactor old ruby on rails code.
My experience with rails has been that it’s pretty good at abstracting most of the crap away from your code base and gives you a nice clean structure for your code, but his argument seems to be that as soon as you start doing some spaghetti stuff, you get into trouble.
Jakob Nielsen recently published this post, where he (and I guess his team) analyze why the Wall Street Journal mobile app gets such bad customer reviews.

I’m busy getting stuff done here in sunny California. I’m sorry that this post is written in haste – I just wanted to make one clear point to everybody interested:

I’ve been terribly busy in the last months. I’ll probably write a better summary of the work I’ve been doing later, but here’s a quick update about what’s been happening lately.
I’m coming to San Francisco for about 10 days tomorrow. I’m going with a group of people from Klak and I’m very excited about it. We’re seeing a few big tech startups, design companies and more. I’ve never been to the USA and I’ve always wanted to visit the tech hub of the world.
Programmers and other geeks love to talk about the tools they use. I won’t go into the languages, databases and what have you, but I want to explain a little bit about the setup I use to develop on and hopefully some of it can help someone out there facing the same issues.
Even though I use Windows as my primary operating system, I’m a pure open source guy and I primarily develop using PHP on nginx/apache and MySQL.
So, this is my stack;
