As mentioned in the comments, "I stopped reading when the author compared speed of a full stack framework on top of an interpreted language to the speed of a compiled language".   #rails   #ruby   #feedthetrolls  
 
Why everybody claim that Rails is slow ???

What are Rails? Purpose? Function? Reason for being? Please enlighten me, anyone....

Hi all, this is my second Patek Philippe, just purchased a week ago during my visit to the Patek Salon in Genève.

This is a Calatrava Reference 5127R in 18k Rose Gold with a special twist - I had the 'Stern' buckle swapped for a Calatrava RG Deployant clasp.

It is also my "everyday" piece running a gorgeous cal. 324 S C movement.  Feel free to post any questions and I hope to feature a thorough review on YouTube by the weekend.

Looks like a TEDTalk that may likely escaped my attention. In which case I must find it.....

I see a low resolution digital data picscan isometric depiction of mirror image tropical fish kissing, yet that's my unique immediate system of optical reflexive pattern recognition at work....

Couple candid snaps of my #patek #patekphilippe #swiss 5127R Calatrava.

I've had the pleasure of wearing this since mid-May; it is quite understated due to its classic design and thin profile. Extremely comfortable on the wrist. Fabulous eye candy ;-)

Here's a fantastic snap I got from my buddy +Kevin Kochhar sporting his newest Patek, a 5980 Chrono.  It looks absolutely stunning on his wrist...! Congrats bro :) #watches   #patek   #patekphilippe   #nautilus   #luxury

Oh, I was referring mainly to the new look of the 'dashboard', which tiles posts etc.
