Posts from September 2012

I've been meaning to link to this for a while: Deploying at GitHub explains the develop/stage/deploy cycle at github, which can rougly be described as "Like Flickr, but with personal dev environments and using Git". It's light on technical details, but says a lot of the right things.

The silver searcher is basically ack, rewritten in C to be crazy fast. If you're regularly using grep to search a codebase, this is probably a much better idea.

The case of the missing bees (more specially, colony collapse disorder) might have actually been solved.

Click and Drag

Today's xkcd combines my love of xkcd and slippy maps. And it's a big one. Luckily someone has put together a draggable/zoomable version.

Map Radio

I was sure I had posted this earlier, but the Yuri Suzuki Tube Map radio is excellent.

Particularly like some of the modified station names; Oxford Circuit, Earl's Coil, Clapham Jumper, etc.

In followup to my previous post, someone has spent the time to create Spotify playlists for all of the Festive Fifties from 1976 to 2011, including the two all-time lists. Some excellent listening.

Festive Fifties

In honor of Mr Ward's first podcast (in addition to my remix) I put together a Spotify playlist of all the Festive Fifty number ones. There are a few missing, due to gaps in the Spotify catalog:

  • 1992 "Geek Love" - Bang Bang Machine
  • 1993 "Enough is Enough" - Chumbawamba & Credit to the Nation
  • 1994 "I Want You" - Inspiral Carpets featuring Mark E. Smith
  • 2004 "Theme From Sparta FC Part 2" - The Fall
  • 2005 "Grumpy Old Men" - Jegsy Dodd
  • 2008 "50-Year-Old Man" - The Fall

If they appear later on Spotify, I'll add them in the relevant position.
