philcrissman on Responding to :js in Rails - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Guilty. I often write without editing in draftin (http://draftin.com, great tool) but then sometimes bits of those drafts wind up in a post without being edited again. :/ That said, I've found in the past that if I think too much about perfecting/completing a post, I never write anything. So I guess I'd rather have some awkward/terrible sentences than never write anything at all." - Phil Crissman

philcrissman on Your Domain Model Is Broken - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"FWIW, I appreciate this. That's a totally fair criticism of the title. Honestly, I didn't take time to think of a better one. I went with that because just calling it "Ubiquitous Language" seemed boring. And because I've yet to work on any project where the domain model wasn't broken. It takes a lot of work to have a domain model that isn't broken. It usually doesn't happen, in my experience." - Phil Crissman

philcrissman on Software is terrible and it's never getting better - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"That's not really what I was talking about. It isn't that new software isn't being written; it's that the quality of our code is not necessarily getting any better. I don't think I'm being pessimistic at all. If anything, I'm an optimist. Thanks for taking the time to comment, though." - Phil Crissman

philcrissman on Naïve Testing - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I should have defined that at least the first time I used the acronym. I should update the post. Thanks!" - Phil Crissman

Re: Validating Nested Attributes on Update - http://philcrissman.com/2010...
"You're right, that's exactly what I did, just force it in the controller.  To check that the associations are valid all the time, I could, maybe _should_, have used validates_associated :children .. but that still doesn't validate the requirement that I had at the time, namely, that at least one child must be present in order for the Parent to be valid. If I was doing this now, I think I would use a custom validation, check the size of the children association, and add the error if the size was zero." - Phil Crissman

Re: Over the last month or so, - http://philcrissman.com/2011...
"Haven't started Breaking Bad, mostly because I'm certain it will be great and I don't have time to watch it. :-) Did watch GoT, very good series. The books, as always, are better, but they did a good job (so far) putting them on screen. LOST did indeed prove to be a waste of time. Worst series ending ever. Have you yet gone back and watched Firefly? Worthwhile." - Phil Crissman

"I don't know about that. I switched to using ddg over a year ago and have never felt the need to switch back. For the few cases that I know I will get better/more results with google, I just preface the search with !g.  See also: http://duckduckgo.com/bang.htm..." - Phil Crissman

Re: Clearing Form Fields with JQuery - http://philcrissman.com/2008...
"Again, yes. If you're using Internet Explorer, it's going to look like crap. I have not tested with Internet Explorer, other than I checked once, and it's totally broken in IE.  Do I need a disclaimer, somewhere? ;-)" - Phil Crissman

"Which browser are you using? I know it renders horribly in IE, and I just haven't cared enough to fix it. AFAIK, it looks fine on Firefox or webkit browsers." - Phil Crissman

"Well, I don't know about _that_... Not a big Fedora fan. But it's okay. If I were going to start using Linux for a desktop again today, I'd be tempted to use either Linux Mint or just plain Ubuntu. If I were feeling really geeky, I think I'd go with http://funtoo.org. :-)" - Phil Crissman
