After being pinched, twisted and pressed, by very powerful hands, and possibly feet...when all the torture stops, you will definitely feel a lot better, whether you call it massage or something else.

Skimming the book Beginning Ruby but the concept of Symbol confuses me. Not sure if my understanding is right: Symbol is a special kind of "string", but only immutable, unique and more memory-efficient.

# when using string
2.1.0 :007 > a = "good"
 => "good"
2.1.0 :008 > b = "good"
 => "good” 
2.1.0 :012 > a.object_id
 => 2156109520
2.1.0 :013 > b.object_id
 => 2156020640 

# when using symbol
2.1.0 :014 > a = :good
 => :good
2.1.0 :015 > b = :good
 => :good
2.1.0 :016 > a.object_id
 => 538248
2.1.0 :017 > b.object_id
 => 538248

Installed but have not seen Baiduspider fetch any data yet.
 
Baidu recently released a structured data plugin for WordPress. You may want to give it a try if your Chinese site is based on WordPress. Be sure to check out the blog post first to see how the plugin works.

Does anyone here use a version control tool for writing?

I'm thinking of introducing Git to our writer & translator team for version control and collaboration, but want to hear if anyone here already has successful stories first.

I know there are tools like Penflip but I still think Git is the ultimate solution, and prefer things under our own control.

Thanks in advance!

I tried GitHub for sales and marketing assets at a technology companies (PowerPoint, images, video) and found it lacking because it suffered under file size.

The other, bigger problem for you, is that, even in a technology company, I couldn't get all of the sales people to use it. They would just keep their own private versions.

The GUI clients we tried were also too buggy and inconsistent. We had Mac and PC users, and Linux users but they ran command line.

This was a year ago, but GUI clients typically failed users and the users thought it was their fault when in fact a working off of the command line showed that the problem was with the client.

So.

Text should be better than the formats I used.

Be sure your organization is small enough that everyone is technically savvy. Or check that GUI clients work. It seems like they do if +Danae Shell has used it long enough to find its problems.

Python programmers should bookmark this, just in case you need to be a man when people laugh at Python's auto indentation. #gotofail

Is Disqus Really "Truly SEO-compatible" as they claimed?

In this blog post (http://blog.disqus.com/post/22325598158/try-out-disqus-2012), Disqus claimed "The new Disqus integrates in a way that is naturally discoverable by Google — out of the box, without any extra work."

A Disqus employee also confirmed this in a Hacker New thread here (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4024777)

It seems they were saying Disqus comments can be normally crawled and indexed by Google. This is different than what their WordPress plugin has been doing, serving comments dynamically loaded by Javascript to users but HTML comments to crawlers.

Possibilities:

<!-- Ryan STARTs irresponsibly guessing -->

1. Disqus supports the assumption that Google can parse COMPLICATED javascript content, so they (irresponsibly) claimed Disqus is truly SEO-compatible;

2. Disqus has established a partnership with Google, and submits the comment data to Google;

3. Google has done customized work to specifically handle Disqus comments. For example, I didn't dive into the documents of Disqus API, but from the source code (universal version of Disqus), the only thing recognizable & unique is a Disqus shortname for a website. Maybe the data can be extracted based on it and the API.

Also, for an article that uses Disqus, Disqus generates a comment RSS feed, something like "site-shortname.disqus.com/your_article_name/latest.rss", maybe Google can find the rss feed in some way.

<!-- Ryan STOPs irresponsibly guessing -->

I'm racking my brain...

And I'd really appreciate it if anyone has seen a site using the pure javascript version of Disqus has its comments indexed  by Google.

Your thoughts?
