Memory Leaks in GetText for Ruby on Rails
Version 1.90.0 of GetText for Ruby has quite some memory leaks in its Rails support files. In my case, the memory Mongrel used increased by 1 MB with each request it served… Quite amazing that you don’t really find someone else having the problem… Well there’s at least a bug report on rubyforge…

Fat Transparent ShadedBorders
Ryan gave the idea and some code for a new ShadedBorder feature. Fat semi-transparent borders:
And thanks alot NewTrax for fixing the hover issues on IE6. It needs a bit more CSS to get going, but will solve any issues. Check out the CSS included in test.html on how to use it.

Random lockups/freezes on nForce4 solved
I’ve had trouble with random lockups/freezes on my nForce4 based Asus A8N-SLI Premium mainboard since the beginning.
