Windows Service – A project was trying to make a daemon for windows using the Ruby Win32Utils. It didn’t work. The solution they came up with was to just run the thing they need in a command window and reboot the EC2 instance its on if it dies.
Some suggestions for how to run a real service should it prove necessary included:
- Using visual studio
Ajax chat feature – Implemented as a first pass with a polling system, does anyone know a better way?
- Comet with Rack
