  1. Thank you for sharing my post on parenting. :) The link posted is to another article though. Here is the link to my guest post on New Latina…

  2. Again, thank you so much for sharing. ?

  3. Very cool article, tnkahs for writing this up. :) One thing to note, though, is that there is a race condition in the last example between lines 18 and 19. The queue could be emptied between checking if it’s empty and popping off the next item. Queue#pop defaults to blocking if the queue is empty, which in this case would cause a deadlock. This works a tad bit better: { do begin while url = queue.pop(true) valid = link_valid?(url) semaphore.synchronize { yield url, valid } end rescue ThreadError => e raise unless e.message =~ /queue empty/ end end }.each {|thread| thread.join }
