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.

comment How can I get OSX Mavericks to notice a change in `/etc/hosts`?
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).

comment Software update hangs on OS X Snow Leopard - how can I fix it?
I gave softwareupdate 1.5 hours before stopping it. Not sure about fragmentation but, I'm only using about 35 out of 500 GB. Now running it with the -v flag.
