Comment Re: 68th to 22nd and there are many to go (Score 1) 192

Ruby has been used where Java was used before, but now some companies are switching to Go for the same purposes. Smaller, lighter apps that do exactly the same thing as the Ruby version. CloudFlare is one company that blogged about it, and I've seen other major companies make the switch.

Comment Re:Custom URL (Score 1) 238

YouTube allowed a custom nickname too, if you were persistent. But as much as I tried, it never let me actually pick the the first 5 attempts. I now have 6 alternate identities which are *exactly the same 11-letter name*. But the 6th one stuck, and YouTube still logs in with it. G+ I only use to stay in touch with a minimal subset of developers, so my real name isn't a problem. I was confused by circles disappearing and being replaced with communities, though. It's not just their policies which need some tweaks, but also their interfaces.
