I was looking around Stack Overflow tonight and decided I'd look at the people with the most "reputation" (reputation let's others know how much a person has participated in SOF's online community). I've seen this guy before- he seems to have a knack for good answers and intriguing questions. Check out Jon Skeet on Stack Overflow.

I'm testing with MongoDB today and during my search to find out more about how to use MongoDB I found a neat little tool on the mongo website. It acts like a virtual environment to use mongodb, or you can type in "tutorial" and it gives you a tour of using mongo. Check it out.

This site belongs to a great designer I know so I decided to highlight his site in this section. Take a look at the Fable Engine and awe at the inspiration that comes from looking at his work.

I decided that Saturday was a good day to move my site from drupal.jacksonkr.com to jacksonkr.com. I figured that I would just copy the files and viola, right? Wrong. I had a disastrous DB incident where what could go wrong, did go wrong. Essentially, I lost my website. I quickly inquired of my host if by chance they had nightly backups. It turns out they had several. Approximately six a day. I was over-joyed and happily paid the small fee to get my data back. It was a small victory for the techs at Media Temple, but a big victory for myself. Perhaps it wasn't a big deal to them, but they made a strong customer out of me - that much is for sure.

Some developers know how to use grep well, other's don't. I'm one of the developers that only knows the basics of grep. For example: if I want to search a folder of 20+ files for a specific string it can be very tedious. However, grep makes this part of life simpler by allowing you search for a string in all files in a folder. eg. grep -lir "search string" /home/myfolder/
