I found bort through This Week in Rails and thought it was awesome. So of course I forked it and started making tweaks to fit it into the apps I normally build.

Today I got to thinking that it might be nice to be able to easily update an existing bort based app to have the new features, like when they added OpenID this weekend. So I wrote a script to setup a new bort app or update an existing bort based app.

Warning the script is very new and hasn’t been used extensively so if you use it make sure you can easily roll back the changes. Like only applying an update to an app that is a clean state so that you can rollback the changes.

Here is my fork of bort

If you are a Neil Patrick Harris and/or a Joss Whedon fan, here’s something for you.

So I found that I had borked the binary at some point. That’s what I get for not having the tests in yet. I fixed that in 0.0.3.

I just added a setup command that will create a gems.yml stub in a new project.

Some of the stuff you find on the interwebs are disturbing, yet very very funny.

Where are the dogs humping

Sexy People

That’s enough for now. Enjoy.

I have created Gem versions of the ConfigReader plugin and GemTools plugin.

You can install them with

sudo gem install config_reader


sudo gem install gem_tools

The source is on GitHub.

So I realized that when I imported all my stuff to GitHub I spaced on setting the svn.authorsfile on a few. So I deleted and reimported them from svn.

If there’s a better way to fix that kind of thing, somebody let me know.

So this morning in the office we were discussing the hassle of swapping out host files based on whether we were in the office or on the outside. I said “You know if I wasn’t so lazy I’d write an AppleScript to do it for me when the network changed”.

This evening I went looking to see if somebody had already do it for me and I found this LocationChanger which was very close to what I wanted. But…

I didn’t want to be limited to only 2 locations (work and home) and I wanted it to be a little easier to manage what happened for each location. So I started with Onne’s code and ended up with Location Watcher.

Enjoy it. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

So I’ve moved all the stuff that is currently hosted on to GitHub.

The stuff will continue to be accessible for a while, but I will not be posting any updates. In addition I will be setting the trac pages to redirect to GitHub shortly as well.

What’d I miss?? So I’ve been in a cave for a little over a year. I know, I know.

I was working for a company that had me doing things that really didn’t pertain to the real world so I didn’t have much to say.

Well, I’m back and working on some goodies. It sure feels good.

I’ll post updates as I have things worth sharing.

If you were a Twitter user and it all of a sudden tanks… It’s all my fault, I created a Twitter account.

Again, My apologies.
