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 DNS change in `/etc/hosts`?
Side note: if you're using DNS to temporarily block sites, selfcontrolapp.com for OSX works nicely. It modifies the hosts file and seems to flush browser cache automatically. They also mention similar apps for other platforms: github.com/SelfControlApp/selfcontrol/wiki/FAQ

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