1000 page hits and not even a second improvement with Turbolinks? For most people it seems like the extra hassle of refactoring code is not worth it. Heed Mr. Knuth's words in this instance, unless you absolutely need that extra 5%.

The deploying with JRuby pdf is also good.

I use torquebox and it is great. I don't have to deploy memcached, resque, use cron, etc. All encapsulated in one system, JBOSS.

Well, I think the deployment headache is worth it when you see the performance if offers over MRI as well as what torquebox gives you out of the box.

I use torquebox and yes, the deployments are the worst. The whole site goes down for 30 seconds.

I would say yes and to run it on Torquebox if it has any complexity.

Ryan, this is not my thumbnail from github, in fact I don't know who this is... could my thumbnail be refreshed?

A good alternative to RMagick if your needs are just resizing: https://github.com/seattlerb/image_science

Ryan,

So am I right in thinking that I have to invoke the methods that would otherwise have been called on page load? That is, we cannot rely upon DOM events firing for our fixtures? Integration testing is where you would want to test that (or call the function manually in the Jasmine test)?

You can also override from using Class.from('select * from blah') in case you need to do nested selects.

I switched to RubyMine from VIM a while ago b/c the remote degugger is such a pain to inject every time using VIM/TEXTMATE/WHATEVER. Visual debugging is REALLY nice :) I'm not sure what technique they use, but debugging has worked on Ruby 1.9.3 for a while with RubyMine.
