comment Using a regular expression to validate an email address
@nickf: Technically, a TLD isn't necessary, me@hotmail is valid. A better solution than regex would be to have a list of common email providers (hotmail.com, me.com, gmail.com, yahoo.com) and search for typos in the address.

comment api authentication in rails 3
OAuth is a pretty complex topic so I'm simplifying this a lot, but essentially during the initial OAuth connection, you would generate an access token and store it in your database along with which user it belongs to. When you make a request to your API, you would provide the access token. Then, your service could look up who owns the access token and authenticate/authorize accordingly. Look up Ruby OAuth Provider libraries.

comment What's the Ruby OpenSSL library equivalent of this command?
Ah, lack of an API for that feature explains the lack of documentation, I suppose ;-) I'll look into using something like that, thanks!
