# Problem I do not want to pay $80 + tax + about $15 other charges for an off-contract iPhone. $39.99 for 450 minutes talk, $20 for 300MB data and $20 for unlimited text messages. # Solution Switch to a prepaid plan. Since AT&T does not let us switch from post-paid to prepaid, you got to find other services. There are a lot of services out there. Having two friends using Straight Talk, I switched to Straight Talk and am using it for three months now. I guess it's a good time to dump pros and cons. # Pros You... Continue reading

Or maybe they are not. First of all, I don't have a car. I live in the city and I can walk or ride my bicycle to commute between home and office. Without a car, I can avoid to pay for insurance, parking hustle, maintenance fee and more. When I really need a car, like going to [Point Reyes]( for hiking, I use [Zipcar]( "Zipcar"), "wheels when you want them". So I had used cabs a lot in San Francisco. But there are four things I really hate about cab drivers. 1. They **don't show up**. It really happens a... Continue reading

**Don't use it**. I mean it. Do not use auto-reply vacation email setting because there is no effective way to use it. Getting "OOO I'm on vacation" email from a guy who has a desk next to me is just ridiculous. I can visually see his empty desk now and he told me he will be on vacation before he left. Vacation auto-reply email function is not smart enough to determine if recipient knows sender's vacation schedule or not because there is no such a technology to look into my brain from any mail exchange servers delivering the shit. What... Continue reading

My favoriate two tools git and vim look good in colorful mode like syntax highlight or colored diff. You can put "almost unlimited" 256 different information in your terminal and which is _huge_. Well, using all 256 colors at once is not so useful, but I'd like to share my two coloring configurations. ## 1. Display git branche name in color Using git means you would have a lot of branches in your working repo. And the [git-completion.bash]( is the magic which allows you to use Tab key to complete name of branches, git sub commands and so on. I've... Continue reading

Linus Torvalds recently put the Linux kernel on Github as well as his dive log software. Here I asked him how he likes Github and what he thinks about it. From Linus: It seems to work well as a hosting place, I'm less impressed with the infrastructure to help "develop" things. It's clearly way too easy to create pointless issue requests, and the "pull requests" seem to be actively designed for somebody who pulls without ever even thinking about what he does - which is against everything I believe in as a project manager. So from the pull request it's... Continue reading

I’ve been active in trying to get pipelining more widely deployed, but to date I haven’t tested mobile browsers much. So, one VM and two test pages (20 images on each) later, I asked my twitter peeps to hit it with their phones while I was watching with htracr. The results confirm what they saw; mobile browsers do pipeline, sometimes aggressively. how are the mobile browsers doing it today? First, Opera Mobile: via Continue reading

we originally wrote the server in Erlang (with MochiWeb) two years ago. After two years of iteration, the code has become difficult to maintain. No one on our team is an Erlang expert, and we have had trouble debugging downtime and performance problems. So, we decided to rewrite it in Python, the de-facto language at Mixpanel. via Continue reading

Root domains are aesthetically pleasing, but the nature of DNS prevents them from being a robust solution for web apps. Root domains don't allow CNAMEs, which requires hardcoding IP addresses, which in turn prevents flexibility on updates to IPs which may need to change over time to handle new load or divert denial-of-service attacks. We strongly recommend against using root domains. Use a subdomain that can be CNAME aliased to, and avoid ever manually entering IPs into your DNS configuration. We also recommend a low TTL value, which will allow Heroku network engineers to quickly make changes to DNS... Continue reading
