# What the heck is this spec about?
# It's a gut-check that runs against every controller in the application.
# It is NOT a replacement for writing controller specs for each controller.
# What this does is things like check to make sure you didn't forget to lock
# down the index action of a controller to authorized users, checks to see if
# common routes are throwing silly errors, etc.
# Your controller passing these tests does not guarantee that it is healthy.

Getting Good at Vim

I have used Vim to write code for about a year, and I can confidently say that Vim does two things for me well. The most obvious thing is that it cuts down on my text editing time. If you consider the amount of time you spend highlighting with the mouse and then returning back to the keyboard to edit text, daily, over the course of a year that time begins to adds up.
