The the Riak Client gem uses nethttp by default. While it allows you to specify a timeout for a map reduce job, it doesn’t set the nethttp timeout for the connection to riak. This means that all requests are effectively limited to 60 seconds. The project that discovered this is switching to curb.
The Mac App Store is actively hostile to business users. There is no way for us to buy software through the app store without setting up a separate account for every three computers, and then you can only reuse a credit card for three accounts. We won’t be purchasing any software through the app store that isn’t absolutely necessary until there’s a way to purchase N licenses and use those on N machines. Pixelmator is the first app to lose our business.
