I started learning web development with the most basic tools: Notepad and HTML. It was all just tinkering for a few years, then I dug into CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySQL at a job where those skills were needed. A couple of jobs later, I'm working in Ruby on Rails, using Rspec and Cucumber, and gearing up to work with Riak.

This fixed it. Under Chrome's "Clear Browsing Data", there are checkboxes for types of data. "Empty the cache" is the relevant one.

comment How can I open a file in its default application from the command line in OS X?
Also nice is open . (or any directory name in place of .), which opens Finder (the default application for a directory).
