- High availability clustering on AWS | Zoran’s Blog – How do we keep legacy applications highly available on AWS? I have already written about this previously and there are many good alternatives with the upcoming Cloudwatch instance recovery the easiest to implement. Yet Cloudwatch instance recovery or autoscaling group with min=1,max=1 still requires failure to be detected (1-2 mins) and new instance to be booted up (2-3 mins). If the application can not tolerate outage of 3-5 minutes then high availability clustering may be a good alternative

Because: *) You need Git and free access to internet *) Even when both conditions are met, downloading plugins can be time-consuming *) When the user account on the server is shared among coworkers, you need to restore the default configuration every time when you're done How does it work? myvim creates a tar archive of your .vimrc and .vim directory and append it to a small bash script that starts Vim with your usual settings and plugins.

- Charted – Charted is a tool for automatically visualizing data, created by the Product Science team at Medium. Give it the link to a data file and Charted returns a beautiful, shareable chart of the data. We built Charted with a few core principles in mind: Charted does not store any data. It only fetches and visualizes what the link provides. It also refetches the data every 30 minutes, so the chart is always up-to-date. Charted does not transform or manipulate data. It displays only and exactly what it receives. Any necessary calculations or adjustments must already be reflected in the data. Charted is not a formatting tool. It is deliberately sparse in features. Charted focuses on getting from the data to the visualization with the fewest decisions possible. As a result, we simplified Charted to just a few options. Here’s a walk-through of those options. [ via http://onethingwell.org/post/103638738213 ]
