Installing Nokogiri on Windows, with Ruby 2.1.5

TL;DR: update RubyGems.

Installing Jekyll 3 Beta on Windows

A little more effort for the bleeding edge.

In a previous post I wrote about installing Jekyll 1.4.2 on Windows - at the time, the guide linked from the Jekyll site itself was way out of date. Happily, they've since updated to link to a much better guide.

Media Keys, Colemak, and the ErgoDox

Flashing the TMK firmware onto the ErgoDox.

I got an ErgoDox off of Massdrop a few months ago, switching up from the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard.

Of Rice and Pen

And terrible puns.

Just over a week after getting it, my Wacom Bamboo Stylus feel (which is quite a name) ended up going through the wash cycle. I'd clipped it inside one of my cargo pockets, and forgotten to take it out.

Thanks, IE.

Cross-Origin fun.

While updating Is it on Spotify? to use the new(ish) Spotify Web API, I ran into an issue when testing things out locally.
