That’s not so important for our development and live,  but as always interesting dates get our attention, todays date will have interesting representation as seconds since start of 1970 year.

1234567890, that showed to me when I have entered the following command and waited a while before  2009-02-14 00:20

while [ $((1234567890 – $(date +%s))) -ge 0 ]; do sleep 1s; clear; date +%s; done

Of course You need to know that Linux is counting time as seconds since begun of year 1970.

Thanks to polish linux blip community for remembering me this very important fact.

Quick update from polish rails blip community, the date for ruby was the same when converting to integer:


Good to hear that not only Linux is affected by this issue.

Missing netbeans passenger support – patch ready

February 11th, 2009 Comments off

I have just posted a patch that should enable  passanger support in netbeans, details can be viewed at netbeans issues.

Hope that will be shortly merged and everybody can use it.

I do not even know if this is fully functional, I got cold and had few other tasks on head, but this should be good start point.

Most of the logick required to get it running is already writen, so should be enough.

Missing netbeans passenger support

February 8th, 2009 3 comments

Netbeans is missing very important (for me) functionality – support for setting passenger as server. This is even described at netbeans issues:

As I could not find any project that does this job I have already started codding, currently it’s only few lines, but I should get “something” shortly, please let me know if anyone is interested in testing or supporting me in anyway.
