Committed is a great way to be notified when someone pushes new code to the GitHub repositories you care about. Committed notifies you using OS X’s new Notification Center feature when someone pushes code.
Way back in mid-2007, when Rails 1.2 was the new hotness and GitHub was still a year away from crawling out of the primordial internet soup, prolific open source contributor Dr Nic wrote an article titled “8 steps for fixing other people’s code”. It offers excellent general advice, but the…
To many, a Time Capsule backup, a SuperDuper backup at home and work plus a cloud backup will sound excessive. Fair enough. But it sucks to have gone through this experience and it really sucks to have lost our valuable family memories. So if you’re not nearly as crazy as I am (lucky you), let me at least urge you to have at minimum one backup at home and another up in the cloud.

Host mac-remote User username HostName computername.123456789.members.btmm.icloud.com AddressFamily inet6 Protocol 2
Which means you can just type
to log in to your other Mac when you’re out and about.
Let’s say you’re on the Github page for
rails/rails. Copying the URL from the top of the page, pasting it into the terminal takes too dang long! Instead, put this in your
~/.gitconfig:# ~/.gitconfig [url "git://github.com/"] # Read-only insteadOf = gh:
In the terminal:$ git clone...
