    Hey Evan, I love the last few episodes you've done and have started using it in my own application setups. Might I make a suggestion about the way you are recording audio for these screen casts? It seems to me that the gain is being push REALLY high and either very near or passed the line causing digital distortion. I'd love to chat with you can give you a few tips on how to remedy this. Thanks! :)

    Hey George, I've recently made some changes on the video and audio end of things. Got some coming out soon that should be a bit better.

    Hello Evan,

    You have a little bug in video, when you use "rewrite", mostly basically non bug but non best one way :)

    Nginx docs recommends use "return" So like "return 301 $scheme://$request_uri;" "rewrite" is recommended for old versions only(prior 0.9.1).

    Thanks for the screencast Evan, As memtion Aya, it s better to use the "return 301 " instead of the rewrite, I experience this with one of my site where the rewrite will give error on Safari 6 but "the return 301" gives an all clear on all broswers (chrome,IE,firefox,Safari).
