It’s been a long time, but better late than never!

I’ll be speaking at RailsConf in Portland on virtual clusters. If you’re going to be there, look for me. Stay tuned for party details.

If you don’t already know about Peepcode, do yourself a favor and check it out. Geoffrey has published two excellent screencasts that are of interest to all Machinists: Capistrano Concepts and Benchmarking with httperf.

Speaking of Machinist topfunky, Rails Machine got a nice review on Nuby on Rails. Thanks!

Machinist Ben Kittrell was interviewed about Doodlekit on Ruby Inside.

Machinist Alicia Shaffer’s Peanut Shell is going to be featured on the Tyra Banks Show this week.

Machinist John Topley’s AssetsGraphed was dissected on The Rails Way. He also has a nice writeup on setting up Mint with Rails Machine.

Machinist Andrew Stewart published some nice scripts for RM.

Machinist Craig Mackenzie has an excellent article on managing staging and production instances using Capistrano. I’m working on making this less painful. I promise.

Want to be in The Machinist? Drop me a line. Also, if you need it, I’ll share my recently discovered secret recipe for actually deploying using Capistrano on Windows! Or you can wait until I fix a bug in the rm gem and get it written up all pretty.
