how to stop twitter from spamming your iPhone
View gist:9100174
Hi, your instructions kind of suck but I figured it out. Here's how to actually do it:
From the iOS app...
1) Go to the Me tab, tap the gear icon, then click settings
2) Tap on the account name to open the notifications settings for that account (critical missing piece of info)
3) Disable "Recommendations" "news" and "other"

question about gemfury
View gist:f22617685ccce1053951
Hi, I haven't used Gemfury at all (yet) and I've only briefly clicked around...
I hope you don't mind answering some questions that might be covered elsewhere that
I just haven't found yet.
I want to distribute code to RubySteps members. I've been using git, which is obviously awesome,
but it doesn't really let me limit who gets what and when. I thought that was an advantage at
first, but it turns out that people get overwhelmed when I just throw the whole thing at them.
I could create a separate git repository for each member and push their new code there...
You can’t perform that action at this time.
