So... Ruby is kinda shit, right?

We're at a point where shit should just work but trying to get SASS/Compass to work with breakpoints has me running into all sorts of errors trying to get the breakpoint extension to install. :/

Ruby install: fine
Compass/SASS: ohh... "gem install [package]". Nice.
Breakpoint: ...
package not found
Doc's say install with bundle. Another packaging mechanism.
"gem install bundle" - cool
Prep Gemfile
"bundle install" - version conflicts, dependency failures, screw this.

fuck you ruby...

I have had to engage with Ruby (largely ROR) on multiple occasions in the last few years and have found it to be a serious memory hog, as well as flaky and obscurantist. If Diaspora had been written in PHP, it would have conquered the social world by now. ;)

The usual Friday event has been cancelled due to religion. For those that still want to come out and chat though there's always Better Thursday. This is a secular event that precedes Good Friday on most years.

Rachel Carson was a big fan of modified mosquitoes rather than chemical pesticides. Finally it might be working.

Well... that'll be an interesting test case.  Have just made an ASA complaint against CareersNZ for the claims on their Natural Health Therapist page.  I say it's a test case because I'm suspecting that the ASA will claim that that particular site is not advertising these things.

I do think it should qualify though as they are advertising career paths that people may sink money into in the form of education fees. This is why I think the information needs to be as accurate as possible.

Moana Lodge is easily in the top 3 places I've stayed yet. It's likely first on that short list too. The view from my room out over the shore is great and with it being the end of the off season they upgraded me to a private room. There was another discount on top of that that was substantial due to the walk I'm on. The facilities are clean and really good. Full kitchen, huge fridge & freezer. Good sized dinning area and a public lounge that is better than most of the flats I've lived in. John and Helen are easy to talk to and seem quite friendly. John also used to be a member of the local Alpine Club and knows a lot about the tramping in the area.
