lua & timezones by name

A bit hard to puzzle due to scarce documentation. #!/usr/bin/env lua local luatz = require ‚luatz‘ —   local tz_name = ‚Europe/Berlin‘ local ts_loc = luatz.time({year=2014, month=12, day=31, hour=23, min=59})   — %z isn’t supported yet: local function tz_off_iso8601(tz_offset_seconds) local separator = “ — 8601 %z compliant — separator = ‚:‘ — 8601 […]

Why PHP is utterly broken

tl;dr: neither does DATE_RFC1123 produce a rfc1123-date, nor does DATE_RFC850 a rfc850-date. What sense does that make? This example may look scrupulous but seems typical. Mind the mandatory word ‚GMT‚ at the end of rfc1123-date. While DATE_RFC1123 renders something ending with +0000. Which is the same timezone but not the same string. So DATE_RFC1123 is useless for HTTP headers (RFC2616). I wonder what else […]

Ad Blocking Proxy = abloprox

as an act of digital hygiene, I installed abloprox on a raspi and added this PAC file to save some keystrokes when configuring: function FindProxyForURL(url, host) { if (shExpMatch(host,"*")) return "DIRECT"; if (shExpMatch(host,"*.local")) return "DIRECT"; if (shExpMatch(host,"*")) return "DIRECT"; if (shExpMatch(host,"*")) return "DIRECT"; // auto config: // 1. ensure there’s a host ‚wpad‘ in the current […]

Opening Xcode projects and workspaces

Inspired by ortas post about it I came up with this one-liner: alias openx=’open *.xcworkspace 2>/dev/null || open *.xcodeproj 2>/dev/null || echo "nagnagnag"’alias openx=’open *.xcworkspace 2>/dev/null || open *.xcodeproj 2>/dev/null || echo "nagnagnag"‘

install ruby @ OS X

OS X comes with a pretty hung ruby (1.8.7) until ‚Mavericks‘. ruby 1.8.7 had it’s planned EOL long ago, even debian/stable nowadays comes with a newer one. So if you’re still running Mountain Lion or older, you may need to install ruby. I chose rbenv and here’s how I did: RTFM install rbenv: $ brew […]
