…just realized I could pin year-long resolutions to my blog’s widget bar so that I look at them every day and am reminded to work toward at least one per day. Hooray!
Spent last night deploying a default rails app to my server just to see if the process has changed since I last did something like that / also for the future if I decide to make a rails app, just to ensure I can deploy it without resorting to something unseemly like Heroku. Turns out it was a little more annoying than anticipated. I’m not sure what the security ramifications are for a user directory set to 0755 permissions, or for using my user-install of ruby via rvm for passenger. Also I think I have the app set in development mode still. So hopefully nobody hacks me or whatever.
Might try deploying a Django application tonight just to have that done as well, so that if I decide to build an app I have the deployment routine on lock.
Haven’t done much. Had some quality time with my father and brother — went out to get chicken katsu, watched Star Trek: Into the Darkness (it was whatever), cleaned the house a little, made dumplings for dinner, hung out and talked a bunch. Worked on the deployment till 6am because of all the bugs I ran into. Man you’d think the guys at Apache would make it easier to deploy rails apps and stuff.
I wonder if I should switch my entire server to using nginx? The only thing stopping me is how long it would probably take, as I’ve already configured apache to the way I like it. And I don’t get that much traffic so it’s not bad.
Woke up at 3pm today. Not sure what I want to do besides run in the park today, so we’ll see.
