This revolutionary step forward in web development will compile your JavaScript down into JavaScript. "You can even compile an invalid JavaScript program to an equally invalid one."

This was the simplest way I could find to move cases that were under one group in OpenAtrium to another

group: https://gist.github.com/benhosmer/7013248

I hate operating directly on the database, but I really couldn't see any other way to do it.

I set up lots of servers with common user accounts. I like to use public key only authentication, but in order to initially set their account passwords, I have to email them a password and then let them change it.

This adds an extra step so I borrowed an idea from +Ben Tuttle who has a webapp that generates digest passwords, and whipped up a similar application to generate shadow passwords for users.

They can enter their password and send me the salted hash. It is a little more secure and they don't have to share their password.

This way, they have a password set initially on the system and don't have to actually share this password.

Try it out: http://shadow.heyhomeslice.com/

It is powered by Flask and Python and uses Zurb Foundation Bootstrap to make it a little prettier.

The rest was spot on. But since I wasn't in the room at that point, it gave me a sad.

On the other hand, I shared this today with the Web Manager's listserv. So far, 50 folks appear to have viewed it today!  Rock star!! You actually interested folks in GOVERNMENT about GIT!!

Pulsar is a concurrent framework for Python. So you can get Python to work like Node.js.

Wow, this builds up so much on Heroes, X-Men etc... Done very nicely and apparently an excellent promotion - this deserves to go viral!

+Google+ When does your algorithm learn from the posts that I mute? I constantly see "What is hot" and half of them contain motivational posters and...CATS! I mute them all the time, but still they show up.

Three awesome and cool homebrewers who are now following their dream. There are the typical sports pub televisions with games on, but that isn't the reason to go here. If you appreciate beer, and I don't mean beer that is watered down lager, you will find a home at Bugnutty. Mike was even nice enough to give me a brewery tour while I was there. They had five of their own beers on tap, along with quite a few other Florida breweries and others as well. The Red Wheat and Blue was very interesting and the IPA was good too.

I've been visiting Wilson on and off there for about ten years and they are by far the coolest place that even a big kid can hang out and have some fun. The employees there always answer questions. This is one of the last vestiges of small business still left and the knowledge you gain is priceless. If he doesn't have it, he can usually get it for you.

Dr. Grimm restored my mobility, he knows his bones from the tarsals to the cranium. His bed-side manner makes it a pleasure to seem him every week. He is a very positive person who believes in what he does. He truly cares about his patients, and you aren't just another number or insurance claim -- you are a person.
