"Better alternatives [to the RAILS_ constants] have existed for a while in Rails core (some since 2.1.0), and it’s about damn time you start using them properly. There’s also some other helpful methods on the Rails module we’ll explore in this post." That was handy.

"It’s pretty common to want SQL queries against a particular table to always be sorted the same way, and is one of the reasons why I added the ordered scope to the utility scopes gem...

"Easily show multiple, overlapping events across calendar days and rows." Which is hard, and it is nice to know someone else has done the work.

A good list of tips - lots of compiled stuff needs to be recompiled to x64, and this will be confusing. I am not upgrading quite yet.
