Sysad stuff – Weekly review: Week ending October 25, 2013

It’s funny how easy it is to forget what you’ve done. Anyway, this week was the week of system administration! Lots of good stuff. On the learning front, I learned a lot about mapping.

Way more sleep this week – I wonder why…

Quick notes

  • Rails was redirecting to SSL after login. Fixed by removing SSL options from Nginx site config.
  • Oh, my sitemap hadn’t been updated in 2003. Added a redirect rule to use the one created by SEO by Yoast.
