  • My first day in Rome

    Let me first start by thanking Jady, Heidi, etc on slow talk. Its been an amazing resource to make the most of your trip.

  • Python websocket on Centos 5.x

    I am currently running a VPS as a playground and my SVN repo and decided to go ahead and set up a websockets server as well. This proved to be a little tricky but eventually got it working.

  • Event based Atlas tracking

    So I ran into this issue where there was absolutely no documentation on how to handle Atlas tracking on non-page-load events.
