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).

Dumb toy.

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

$ go get
$ mkdir repo
$ cd repo

$ echo burrito > things-i-love.txt
$ git add things-i-love.txt

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.
