In some extremely rare cases you end up pushing data to the repo with the wrong credentials. If you are the only author and you’re as picky as I am, it can be corrected easily:
git filter-branch -f --env-filter "GIT_AUTHOR_NAME='Stan Smith'; GIT_AUTHOR_EMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org'; GIT_COMMITTER_NAME='Stan Smith'; GIT_COMMITTER_EMAILemail@example.com';" HEAD git push --force
In the case of there being multiple people working on a project, you may want
to use the following gist posted by anonymous:

I recently discovered an incredibly useful function - you can look up man pages
for keywords by pressing
Shift + k) in normal mode when cursor is
over the word you need to look up.
It works with any shell or programming language keywords, as long as vim recognizes the filetype.
I find the default cygwin color palette to be a bit ugly, so here’s one that
has softer colors. Add the following lines to your
.minttyrc and restart
cygwin in order to apply changes.
ForegroundColour = 131, 148, 150 BackgroundColour = 0, 0, 0 CursorColour = 220, 50, 47 Black = 7, 54, 66 BoldBlack = 0, 43, 54 Red = 220, 50, 47 BoldRed = 203, 75, 22 Green = 0, 200, 132 BoldGreen = 0, 200, 132 Yellow = 204, 204, 102 BoldYellow = 204, 204, 102 Blue = 102, 153, 204 BoldBlue = 102, 153, 204 Magenta = 211, 54, 130 BoldMagenta = 108, 113, 196 Cyan = 42, 161, 152 BoldCyan = 147, 161, 161 White = 238, 232, 213 BoldWhite = 253, 246, 227
Setting up Ruby on Rails with MongoDB on a Windows machine.
You need to have cygwin installed with
git packages (obviously you
may want to have more).
The following commands are executed in the cygwin prompt:
git clone git://github.com/rubygems/rubygems.git cd rubygems/ ruby setup.rb gem install rails
Go to the MongoDB website and download Windows binaries:
http://www.mongodb.org/downloads. Extract the content of the
Create a directory for the db files (the default MongoDB db files directory is
cd /cygdrive/c mkdir data mkdir data/db
Done! Both mongo and rails are in your cygwin’s path now, feel free to tweak it as you see fit.
I’ve been giving preference to a keyboard over mouse since I discovered vim for myself, as it’s a faster and more convenient way to go. I am a Chrome user and recently I found an amazing plugin: Vimium.
It does exactly what the name suggests, allowing you to use vim-like commands in your browser. You can freely move, switch between tabs, work with forms and click links using familiar vim key bindings.
A two minute long introductory video explains basic commands and you’re all set! I’ve been using Vimium for over a week now, an amusing experience which allows you to throw your mouse in a dark corner (well, not exactly: Vimium still has some issues with over-bloated ajax pages, not to mention Flash and other nasty stuff).
