Coda 1.5 entering limited private beta

Jul 08 2008 Published by under Apple,English,Mac,OS X,Ruby,TextMate

One of my favorite editor on Mac is Coda, the most important part for me is in their tagline:

Compare with my another favorite editor, TextMate, every time I open it, I will open three more windows at the same time:

  • Terminal for running application
  • Terminal for mysql
  • Browser for view my pages and documents

Coda has all of these and even more:

Text editor + Transmit + CSS editor + Terminal + Books + More = Whoah.

But, on another side, leaking of version control and no powerful bundles as TextMate keep a lot of Ruby developers out of it.

Things may change:

After a lot of work, we’re finally ready to work with some people to test Coda 1.5 — the next major release of Coda — and prepare it for the general public.

To enter Coda 1.5 limited private beta, go to:
If registration is still available, the registration link will be in the upper-right corner of the page. (If there’s no link, we’re full.)

So what’s new in Coda 1.5?

  • Better Search and Replace?
  • Source Control Support (SVN or Git)?
  • Custom Books? Add more Ruby Document in it?
  • Better Support for more than one languages mix together in one file?

Stay tuned. :)

* Unless you want to use more than one window. Which is totally cool.

As a result, Canadian Apple Retail stores won’t be selling the new 3G touch-screen phones come Friday.

Community practicing on the world’s largest Question Bank

Jul 08 2008 Published by under English,Toronto

We’ve just launched a new feature on Question Bank.

Over 1,500 members use this innovative social interface to practice for exams, which includes tools to allow members to time themselves, debate solutions and strategy with each other, and to track their improvement over time. The question banks grow daily as members and staff add new questions. As one of the only alternatives to expensive books and courses, LearnHub’s free SAT and GMAT communities are catching on quickly, averaging 50 new members every day since their launch.


Here is one thing makes our question bank so unique:

After you answer the questions, you will not only see the correct answers, but also the comments from other people who have answered the same question! And you can share your thoughts with us too.

Simple, but useful.

Should I say: it’s time for Community Practicing?!
