Sidekiq 3 Memory Killer

photo_small My Sidekiq 3 installation seams to be very hungry in respect of memory. If you dig through the Net you'll find a lot of similar reports. For e.g. the unicorn web worker a memory-killer script exists which should prevent running into Madland. So I thought I take an example and do a similar thing for the sidekiq workers. If you give them time and send a graceful kill signal there shouldn't be any data-loss either. #!/bin/bash # check if script is []

SystemStackError: stack level too deep

photo_small I just had some trouble running a intense ruby task. The result was following error: SystemStackError: stack level too deep /home/diaspora/diaspora/app/models/aspect_membership.rb:13:in `block in <class:AspectMembership>' /home/diaspora/diaspora/app/models/user/connecting.rb:46:in `remove_contact' /home/diaspora/diaspora/app/models/user/connecting.rb:62:in `disconnect' /home/diaspora/diaspora/app/models/aspect_membership.rb:14:in `block in []

OpenWRT + TP Link WR841N(D) + OpenVPN

I already thought about buying a new phone and when I did some research I came to the result that I would re-buy the S3 Mini. The size is perfect, it fits into any pocket and in my opinion the camera make some great photos as well. While thinking about buying the same phon []

TomTom Rider and the GPS quest

photo_small I bought my TomTom a couple of years ago and still, I am very happy with it. The Rider was one of the first navigation systems with the so called function "Find a curvy stretch"! For a motorbike enthusiast this function will eliminate a huge amount of planning-time. I used this in several holidays without any complaints and great routes.
