Fuck Cancer.

These Van Halen song release names are hilarious!

These are all over the place in Frankfurt. They are unmanned and nondescript, it's literally just the door you exit through. There are no lights or anything, but somehow they make it seem pretty clear that it's just to keep people from slipping through in the unintended direction.

Which tools enable real-time schema migrations in Pg?

CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY, ALTER, and others. Batteries included.

This has saved our bacon a number of times. The only kind of DB-related downtime we have is when we're doing a Postgres upgrade.

Interesting concept.. might want to highlight the destination a bit more prominently. When carrying multiple boarding passes, prominently displaying departure point and destination will make it easier to make sure you have the wrong one out at time of boarding..

> If you’re using JSON and your JSON is a mix of types, goooooood luck. You’ll have to create a custom struct that matches the format of your JSON blob, and then Unmarshall the raw json into an instance of your custom struct. Much more work than just obj = json.loads(json_blob) like we’re used to in Python land.

I believe you can use json.NewEncoder().Encode() to arbitrarily deal with interface{}'s

How is this different than dunking your machine in mineral oil?

It's a refrigerant. Boiling point is 40C at atmospheric pressure.

Are these tools open source?

The script I used for extracting sms/iMessages is here https://gist.github.com/4437883

Some of the other scripts just download data from foursquare's API, and post processing transaction download from Mint. Hopefully I'll have time to clean and post those scripts.

I'd be interested in seeing the one(s) that keep track of application usage!

-----


I've dumped the cron job i use for data collection here https://gist.github.com/4477372

My rough approach to post processing this data was to group by 6 minute intervals, and to drop any records where the computer was inactive for more than 120 seconds.

-----


I've tweaked it a bit here https://gist.github.com/4478297

- Logs active website from Chrome

- Stores time including local timezone (interesting to see what timezones I'm in)

- File name includes hostname

-----


Many thanks for the script :)
