I'm a hacker and the Chief Technical Architect of BwinParty, a digital gaming company.

My favorite language is EmacsLisp because I like Emacs and I like Lisp. I've written such things as Elnode (an Emacs async HTTP server framework) and creole.el (a WikiCreole parser).

comment Is it worth running Nginx for static files of my Node.js app?
Just to note, nginx 1.3 now has websocket proxy support. You absolutely should use nginx now to front node.js.

I think people do it, personally I'd be wary of it because of security and stability concerns. But if your application isn't that sensitive it's worth a try. If it all breaks or gets broken into too often you can always add nginx (or whatever) later. No big deal.

comment how to make chained ssh work with git
using ssh proxies does work... but GIT_SSH should work too. Anyway, you're right. Proxy does work.

No, I don't think so. chained ssh works fine. I'm not sure what issue you're seeing. I've tried adding tty switches and it makes no difference. It would be pretty wierd if git required a tty to operate.
