Significant Performance Boost For XP

by 8 others (via)
Do you want to make the very best use of your computer's RAM? There are thousands of websites offering performance tweaks for XP and you could spend the next week or more researching the ones you might like to perform, or you can save yourself a lot of bother and read this article. There are hundreds of XP tweaks, but you only need the handful listed here to obtain a significant performance boost. The rest of the tweaks you might find will only give you minor and often indiscernible performance benefits. If you don't have 512MB of RAM or more, there are tweaks here that you can apply anyway, but the best performance boost you'll ever get will be obtained by increasing your RAM.

So, we are a couple of Microsoft developers (MCSD's) that have each been working with Microsoft technologies (most recently C#, Windows Forms, ASP.NET, XML Web Services, you know) for a decade. A couple of months ago, just for fun, we decided to give Ruby On Rails a try, on a couple of side projects. (After all, what self-respecting software developer doesn't have side projects?) We hope you'll find this helpful, and comments, suggestions, and you own articles are always welcome!

Setting up a Rails development environment using Locomotive

2005 was assuredly a huge year for the Rails development team - the 1.0 milestone was hit, and with it came one of the most innovative development tools available, Locomotive. I've been using Locomotive in tandem with Subversion and MySQL for the past couple of weeks while working on some new projects which are now nearing completion - giving me some free time to write about my experiences using these tools, and how you can utilise them in your own development environment.

Yaml.rb -- Yaml for Ruby

For Ruby developers, YAML is a natural fit for object serialization and general data storage. Really, it's quite fantastic. Spreads right on your Rubyware like butter on bread! The possible uses for YAML are innumerable. Configuration files, custom internet protocols, documentation, the list goes on and on. Also, with YAML readers popping up for other languages (see and others), you can pass data easily to colleagues in distant lands, swamped in their archaic languages.
