comment Task Switcher moves to non-primary display on Mavericks
Oh! I must be performing Method 1 on my non-primary display subconciously. Is there a way to disable this long downward drag dock-switching behavior?

This is no longer accurate, because Sidekiq dropped MultiJson usage on #perform_async. Sidekiq now uses the core JSON module. See this comment by Sidekiq's author

No joke. FirstACH's customer service is incredibly bad. This was my first experience with them: i.imgur.com/up4P8Bi.jpg

comment How do I calculate relative time?
@PaparazzoKid Yes, Timeago handles time zones just fine as long as your timestamp is a proper ISO8601 timestamp. But you're right. This is the wrong place to ask this question. Go here instead: github.com/rmm5t/jquery-timeago/issues

comment Using Git in a Company?
@ries I've heard a lot of concern over this from both Canada and Europe recently. Personally, I think it's a bit of a red herring, but I understand the concerns. Do what's best for you.

comment How to round a time down to the nearest 15 minutes in Ruby?
@amoebe Good point. Time#round looks like it was added in Ruby 1.9. I renamed the method to round_off although, the built-in Time#round doesn't seem that valuable to me.
