Long time web veteran from the trenches with a long history of successful self-employment and business ownership. Had a HP-UX UNIX account when I was 13, installed Redhat 5.2 on a 486 and built crazy huge CGI scripts in C and perl in the day. Now using Ruby, PHP, Python and sometimes even Java when I feel like being abused. I'm a pragmatist that enjoys FOSS and uses GNU/Linux for almost everything from tiny field data monitors, to enterprise HA clusters, to my desktop.

comment unicorn/rails server errors in production, but doesn't write to log or stderr
I ran the site in production under webrick, and it wrote to logs/production.log (the error had to do with sprockets pre-compiling assets, no suprise). But the question remains, because running under unicorn in production I am still getting no exceptions in the logs.

comment setup exim to send unknown users' mail through dnslookup/MX
I agree it's non-kosher, but the choice was made to have GoDaddy (!) host the SMTP service for the domain, and the server was given only the domain name as it's hostname (as opposed to foo.example.net).
