I've developed on the web for 17 years. I can configure pools of servers, architect and develop the applications on those servers, and make it all look good (and run). I am a Professor at Franklin University, hold a Master's in Computer Science and I lead 500 members of the Columbus Ruby Brigade. I've launched projects for folks from Rackspace, AT&T, Sprint, LivingSocial and SeoMoz to local engineering and consulting firms.

I currently work at Rackspace as a Developer Advocate. It rules.

comment Airport Extreme Base Station roaming network crazy ping times
Thank you very much for your answer; unfortunately switching to random channels between 36 & 161 I am seeing similar results. I've also tried renaming the 5GHZ band and joining that network. No luck so far.

comment When downloading an image uploaded with Carrierwave to S3, I get a blank empty image
The usual best practice is to have a set of pre-defined sizes and let Carrierwave resize upon upload of that file, not as a just-in-time resizer. Would this be possible for your app?

comment 2 Pair Ethernet not working
Just tried 568A -> 568B with no luck. I also tried manually setting 100T (and 10T for that matter) with no luck either.
