After updating to rubygems 1.2.0 I've noticed that my mongrels started returning the following colorful error on every XHR load, i.e. all AJAX requests fail but regular page loads are fine:
Mon Jun 23 23:39:15 -0400 2008: HTTP parse error, malformed request (127.0.0.1): #<Mongrel::HttpParserError: Invalid HTTP format, parsing fails.>
Given that rubygems was the last thing I updated, I figured I'd try reverting to the previous 1.1.1 release using the following steps:
- uninstall all versions of the rubygems-update gem that were installed:
sudo gem uninstall rubygems-update
- install the v1.1.1 rubygems-update:
sudo gem install --version '1.1.1' rubygems-update
- manually run the updater to ensure that the stable v1.1.1 release was active:
A few minutes of churning away and... still no biscuit! ARGH!
More updates when I get this working.
UPDATE: This is a weird one. I was poking around working on an official bug report to the error when I noticed that my ~/.gemrc had a duplicate source entry for github. I removed the duplicate, restarted the mongrels and... it worked! Go figure.
Don't bother going to see Manoj Shyamalan's latest movie, The Happening, instead sit comfortably at home/work and read through The New Republic's descriptions of the movie's "highlights". I must say, I've never heard of such a dumb movie, well, not since the last time someone offered to make a movie with Larry the Cable Guy.
There's a new season coming soon of Slayers, my favorite anime created by Hajime Kanzaka. Slayers has thus far spanned three awesome seasons and has several side stories compiled as standalone episodes. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in anime or looking to try something different. As to when it'll be available in outside of Japan (or as fansubs)? Sore wa himitsu desu!
Well, "save you bacon" sounds better than "save your assets" but the principle is the same. Git has tonnes of wonderful magic toys, but it seems it also has a little trick for saving the bacon when you accidentally loose something. One to bookmarked for those special days..
