Data Recovery Toolkit for InnoDB Released
26 Nov2007

I’m returned from my 1-week vacation today and want to say – I’ve never been so productive as I was there ;-) Blue ocean, hot sun and white sand really helped me to finish my work on the first release of one really awesome project.

Today I’m proud to announce our first public release of the Data Recovery Toolkit for InnoDB – set of tools for checking InnoDB tablespaces and recovering data from damaged tablespaces or from dropped/truncated InnoDB tables.

Small Tip: How to Enable ActiveRecord Logging in Merb
2 Nov2007

Today I was developing one small merb application for one of our projects and needed to see ActiveRecord logging on console like I do in Rails. After a short research I’ve found out that merb_active_record plugin passes its MERB_LOGGER to AR by default so I decided to try to change merb log level and here they are – my pretty colored AR logs!

So, if you want to see ActiveRecord logs in your application in development mode, then you need to add one line to your conf/environments/development.rb file:

1
2
puts "Loaded DEVELOPMENT Environment..."
MERB_LOGGER.level = Merb::Logger::DEBUG

That’s it for now. Long live merb! :-)
