A trivial HTTP proxy server for testing and troubleshooting
View http-proxy-server.rb
# This is a trivial HTTP proxy server, intended for use as a troubleshooting tool
# ONLY (not for real, actual, production use). I wrote this because I couldn't find
# a simple HTTP proxy that I could use to test HTTP proxy support in Net::SSH.
# This code is in the public domain, so do with it what you will!

jamis / codes.rb
Created Feb 4, 2009
A basic substitution-cipher puzzle generator. Uses Prawn (0.5 or later) for PDF output. Sample output:
View codes.rb
# Generates a series of substitution cipher puzzles. The messages to
# "encrypt" are take from a text file passed on the command-line,
# where each message is on one line.
# The output is a PDF, "codes.pdf".
# This was written for my 7 year-old, who loves doing substitution
# ciphers.

jamis / i18n.vim
Created Oct 29, 2009
Quickly look up Rails translation strings
View i18n.vim
" Lets you quickly find translation strings. Position your cursor over a translation
" key, type '<leader>rt' (whatever your leader character is configured to be, usually
" backslash, but I have mine set to comma) and the screen will split to show the
" corresponding translation string in config/locales/en.yml.
" Right now, this only supports en.yml, and does not search any other locations.
" Also, error handling is abysmal. :) But it does what I need. If you hack it up
" and make it better, let me know!
" MatchPatternAtCursor lifted (and renamed) from rails.vim, thanks tpope! :)

Easy Gourmet Marshmallows
View Easy Marshmallow Recipe
Marshmallows are perhaps one of the simplest confections you can make. They only
require a handful of ingredients, a batch can be thrown together in 10-15 minutes
(plus *cough* 3 hours for them to set), and you can flavor them however you like.
(You haven't LIVED until you've had coconut marshmallows!)
