Away for the past week

Posted by Sun, 27 Mar 2005 20:09:55 GMT

I was on vacation in California all last week. Just before I left, we announced our new hosting plan rates. We have upgraded our disk space and bandwidth allocations for each package level. We have had a nice response to our affordable <a href=http://www.rails-hosting.com/ >rails hosting packages. One thing that I have noticed is that several of our new customers are fairly new to Rails and they like that we set them up with a vanilla Rails install in their account and they don’t need to do anything to get it up and running. This is all free and included in our hosting plans.

Along with this, you also get our expertise in hosting PostgreSQL. Every customer has their own private instance of PostgreSQL (you get your own port and have remote access). This allows us to be flexible with what version of PostgreSQL you want to run (7.3, 7.4, 8.0.1, etc).

If you’re looking for <a href=http://www.rails-hosting.com/ >ruby on rails hosting, take a look at our rates before you make your final decision.

Jim Ray launched the new and improved PlanetRubyonRails website today. It is now built in Rails and has a new url for the rss feeds.

Ruby Syntax HIghlighting in your blog

Posted by Tue, 15 Mar 2005 19:45:55 GMT

Carl of carldr.com posted on the Rails list a link to his ruby syntax highliter page. You can paste your ruby code in a textarea and it generates HTML-friendly syntax of your code so that you can style it with css.

I will try to get this to work in Typo sometime today. :-)

RubyURL.com.. was it destiny?

Posted by Tue, 15 Mar 2005 04:16:58 GMT

After announcing RubyURL (almost 200 URLs in 12 hours!), I saw a thread on RubyTalk discussing TinyURL and saw a post from Friday..where someone suggested the idea of a site called, rubyurl.net!

Here’s the weird part. I subscribed to RubyTalk yesterday (Sunday morning) and never saw that thread, never saw that suggestion..and somehow, I came up with this idea to build RubyURL.com last night (as a let’s see if I can do it in a hour’ type of project).

However, now that I just saw the thread, I feel like I unknowingly took someones idea and ran with it..without ever knowing it. heh.

As I just said on RubyTalk, the world works in strange ways…

RubyURL gets a few filters

heading to bed.. (finally)

A few people thought they were funny. heh

I’ll work on adding some better error checking tomorrow. I just happen to know how to do it quicker in PostgreSQL.

ALTER TABLE rubyurls ADD CONSTRAINT url_exclude 
CHECK ( 
    website_url !~ 'goatse' AND 
    website_url !~ 'rubyurl.com' AND 
    website_url !~ 'tubgirl');
