NYC Standup Round-up for Feb 22th – Feb 26th

Live from the set of Snowpocalypse 4: The Reckoning, it’s the weekly NYC Standup Round-up!

Interesting

  • Corey points out that the Google Maps embed code wants to be put directly on a page, not loaded on demand with something like jQuery’s $.getScript(). Luckily, there’s a fix: adding an async=2 param to the Google Maps API URL. More info in a post from Olly Hodgson.

  • Rachel and Pat found out the hard way that Bundler 0.9.8 doesn’t run on Ruby 1.8.6. Upgrade your Ruby or stick to Bundler 0.9.7.

  • The same team had a real headache even upgrading from Bundler 0.7.0 to 0.9.8. The gem cache directory moves and the Gemfile format changes, among other things. This sounds like more than a minor-version change to your standup scribe.

  • Don’t put Coca-Cola in the freezer. I know, you want it to get cold faster. You’ll come back for them in like five minutes. It seems like a great idea. But out of sight, out of mind, and the next day, you open the freezer to grab your microwave burrito and you find these waiting to explode all over you:

    Oh ,the Cokemanity.

    I’m just asking you to think this through. Do you want frozen Coke foam splattered across your nice shirt? You can put an end to this madness. Just don’t do it.

    Hold on. Your real problem is putting your burrito in the microwave. That foil will spark somethin’ FIERCE.
