Paw – The most advanced API tool for Mac
"Paw is a full-featured HTTP client that lets you test the APIs you build or consume. It has a beautiful native OS X interface to compose requests, inspect server responses and generate client code out-of-the-box." Looks very impressive - and useful to be able to store previous queries for later.

Websockets and mobile network operators - Digits Domotica Blog
Discovered in today's client work: Vodafone block websockets regardless of what port they're on. No idea if it's intentional or accidental, but it's very annoying. Now you know!

"The most impressive request thoroughly embraced the nature of TCP/IP, and arrived in a number of packets, out of order and with some data corruption (see the missing data on the envelopes), which we had to reconstitute into the actual request within our ‘server’." Everyone involved in this post is brilliant.

Ethernet data transfer stalling or failing
"I've been working on a sketch wherein some data is downloaded from an HTTP server and is then processed on the Arduino (printed, as it happens, but I don't think that's important). In my original sketches, I was occasionally seeing transfers fail midway through." James is running into issues that might be relevant to me.

Cody Fauser - Rails HTTP Status Code to Symbol Mapping
"Recently I had been wondering what the complete list of HTTP status code symbols was in Rails. Searching through Rails didn't yield any results for a symbol like :unprocessable_entity... Rails defines the symbol to status code mapping dynamically from the status message. The symbol used is an underscored version of the status message with no spaces." Quick list of clear textual shorthand for returning HTTP status.
