According to their bug tracker, App Engine should support naked domains (without a www. prefix, for example, just "http://domain.com"). Caveat: no https set, they're hoping to get that out in a subsequent release.

Questions  - 
 
Anyone out there have experience with unit testing a scenario when  a service is down like datastore or memcache, etc.?

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23004023/how-do-i-use-unittest-to-catch-capabilitydisablederror-exceptions

Google provides tutorials on how to mimic a service being down, but I'm not doing something correctly as datastore put() operations still succeed and exceptions like CapabilityDisabledError do not get raised, which means my tests fail.

Thanks for any assistance.

Someone answered on Stack Overflow that since I'm using the High Replication Datastore, i'll never see the CapabilityDisabledError exception, so now I'm looking into quota-related exceptions.

Great thoughts about free speech from someone within Mozilla about what happened with Eich.

We had uboxes shipped here from California and the staff here have been nothing but pleasant and professional. We rented a truck from them to take stuff from the uboxes to our apartment and the rental process was quick and painless.

Very friendly staff, but our breakfast order got "lost in the computer" and I've been waiting over forty minutes with two little kids, no refills offered or anything.
