ETags: a pretty sweet feature of HTTP 1.1

HTTP caching review

HTTP provides two ways for servers to control client-side caching of page components:

  • freshness may be based on a date or a token whose meaning is app-specific
  • whether or not the client needs to confirm the cached version is up-to-date with the server

This breaks down as follows:

  • Cache locally and don't check before using.

Enable key repeat in Apple Lion for Sublime Text in Vim mode
View keyrepeat.shell
# Mac OS X Lion introduced a new, iOS-like context menu when you press and hold a key
# that enables you to choose a character from a menu of options. If you are on Lion
# try it by pressing and holding down 'e' in any app that uses the default NSTextField
# for input.
#
# It's a nice feature and continues the blending of Mac OS X and iOS features. However,
# it's a nightmare to deal with in Sublime Text if you're running Vintage (Vim) mode,
# as it means you cannot press and hold h/j/k/l to move through your file. You have
# to repeatedly press the keys to navigate.
