thetron 164 days ago | link | parent | on: Float Label Pattern

I love this idea. I did a quick pure-CSS implementation, not bullet-proof by any means - biggest downside is it's reliance on the `required` attribute: http://jsfiddle.net/thetron/qpsnH/


I started using Airmail[1], and I love it. Mainly for label support with Gmail, but there's lots of little bits of UI features that I love about. Definitely worth the $1.99 or whatever it is on the App Store.

I've seen it, but I read that it's very bugged. Did you experienced any problem?

None here, thus far. Best mail client I've ever used.

Good to know. 2$ is definitely worth. Pity there is not a trial version on the app store.

BTW, is it good to keep zero inbox? I'm so desperate that I was thinking about writing my own zero inbox-oriented client ...


Thanks for mentioning this! I had completely missed the announcement. That's really exciting, I wonder if pin.net.au will adjust their pricing to match Stripe's. Good to have some healthy competition locally.

Pin will need to drop its prices to below stripe's or drastically improve the product. I started in integrating pin payments into my SaaS app and gave up when I realised pin would send an ugly email to my customers _every_ time I charged them. Ugh, no thanks.

Congrats Ruby team - really well done. 20 great years.

Because it makes me happy.


We love sentry. We made the switch from Hoptoad/Airbrake, because the pricing based on event volume rather than number of projects. We use it to track a group of small-scale Rails applications - which are growing in number, but reasonably low traffic.

I love everything about it, looking forward to having a poke around the new design!


Super relieved to see that - I was seriously disappointed to see Corey's name in amongst the mob. That's how an apology should be written.


We tend to run out of private repos on our organisation gold plan, but have a little ruby script which can pull down some of the older projects (and their wikis), zip them up, archive them to S3 and then remove the repo on Github.

It can also do the reverse, pull the archives down, create a new private repo and push everything back up.

It works quite well, and certainly solved the problem of hitting that ceiling.

Would you mind publishing this? We run into this issue too.


thetron 451 days ago | link

It's definitely my intention to. At the moment it's a bit of a hodge-podge, but it's definitely on my to-do list to release it as a properly packaged (and tested) rubygem.

You should consider using git-annex with an S3 remote.
