Nope, I just use straight up Jekyll (Octopress uses Jekyll under the hood but it gives you less control over certain aspects of the site in some respects so I just wrote it from scratch).

Today someone saw a typo in my blog and corrected it by submitting a pull request. Open source blogging FTW!

Would you have felt any differently if somebody had pulled and pushed your post just to correct line 43?

lol, this is great.
 
Dumb toy.

Bruteforce a git commit hash prefix by altering the committer and author date:

$ go get github.com/bradfitz/gitbrute
$ mkdir repo
$ cd repo
$ git init
$ echo burrito > things-i-love.txt
$ git add things-i-love.txt
$ git ci -m "lo principal"
$ gitbrute --prefix=f00d
$ git show

See commit with prefix "f00d".

Code is at https://github.com/bradfitz/gitbrute/blob/master/gitbrute.go

Example commit: https://github.com/bradfitz/deadbeef

I'm sorry.

Simulating Activity Configuration Changes

In case you didn't know this method existed... the Activity#recreate() method allows you to programatically trigger Activity configuration changes (available since API 11). I sometimes find it useful as I'm debugging.

public void recreate() Cause this Activity to be recreated with a new instance. This results in essentially the same flow as when the Activity is created due to a configuration change -- the current instance will go through its lifecycle to onDestroy() and a new instance then created after it.
