Remove duplicate bookmarks in Firefox quickly
View dupefixer.rb
# Did Mozilla F1 and Firefox Sync manage to duplicate your bookmarks 57814 times (like they did mine)?
# Did CheckPlaces and other misc addons completely fail at the task of removing duplicate bookmarks?
# Does the bookmarks manager grind to a halt even selecting an item?
# This is the fix for you..
# Backup the bookmarks in Firefox using the Backup function
# (from the star icon in the bookmarks manager) to JSON.
# Invoke this script as following:
# ruby dupefixer.rb /Users/yourname/Desktop/bookmarks.json

What is the best way to verify that a specific set of named keyword argument parameters of a method are not None, and be able to refer to those parameters, by name, in a log message reporting the missing parameters, but not causing the method to explicitly fail?

Vagrant cannot forward the specified ports on this VM, since they
would collide with some other application that is already listening
on these ports. The forwarded port to 8000 is already in use
on the host machine.
To fix this, modify your current projects Vagrantfile to use another
port. Example, where '1234' would be replaced by a unique host port: :forwarded_port, guest: 80, host: 1234
