The BFG and +Eric Raymond​​'s reposurgeon do somewhat different jobs - reposurgeon works with many different kinds of repository, CVS, SVN, etc, and can fix-up history while translating from one format to another. The BFG works only with Git repositories, and concentrates on making removing unwanted data from Git history simple and fast.

So they're not the same thing, reposurgeon is much sophisticated, and ESR is a much more notable software developer than myself! But in the area of high-performance bulk Git history-rewriting, I'm not aware of anyone else with a significant project in this space other than ESR and myself. So when I see a video like this, the first in a series, dedicated to the construction of a high-performance system for developing Git-rewriting software, it feels like someone has created a TV channel just for me.
 
First video from the Great Beast build.

In case you missed it, gu:who is the simple tool we wrote at +The Guardian  to help manage GitHub organisation membership - it helps enforce Two-Factor Auth, identifiable user profiles, and ensures there is some named individual responsible for every single account in your organisation.

It does all of this through a simple interface based on GitHub issues - a method of communication which means you can even contact enigmatic organisation members who's username you don't recognise, and thus don't have an email address for.

Hey, The BFG is the No.1 trending Scala repo on GitHub today!

http://rtyley.github.io/bfg-repo-cleaner/
https://github.com/trending?l=scala

(in case you're wondering, The BFG is an alternative to git-filter-branch for cleansing bad data out of your #Git repository history, ie removing crazy big files, passwords, and other private data).

It is a great tool. I can see a ton of use cases that we come across all the time.

How can I see all the Google+ photos that I've +1'd?

I've been +1'ing the photos I really like all year, and now I can't find any way to find all of them...

I'm looking for a photo grid view like https://plus.google.com/photos , but only showing the photo's I've +1'd. There are various search filters available on Google+ Photo search (source & type), but unfortunately none of the filters relate to +1s.

+Roberto Tyley yes, but that is the best that is available currently, there is no way to find just the photos you have plussed within G+.

This beautiful dolphin sundial set in the gardens of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich does something other sundials don't: compensates for the difference between solar time (varies by time of year) and 'clock' time, which is at it's annual maximum (16 minutes!) today, the 4th of November.

Nursing a nasty cold, I took this picture of the sundial at noon today, and if you look closely at the tiny gap between the shadows of the two tails, you'll see it falls exactly on the wavy lines for 12- and you can see how far off it would have been if you look at the straight line, rising up through the middle of the dial.

Hey, didn't know Parlays did this, but here's the Android app they've already put out for #ScalaDays 2014 - all talks downloadable to your device. My talk ('Git Going Faster... with Scala') is in there :-)

Ultimate Loft Ladders came round to measure the lofts and give us a quote, but didn't get back to us. Several weeks and 3 phone calls to them later, finally established that they had rejected the job because - they said - there was insufficient access, an explanation that doesn't make any sense to us: the access looks pretty good to us, otherwise we wouldn't want to use the lofts.
