From a while back, but more relevant than ever:

Obligatory video below the fold.

In case I ever need rails performance troubleshooting: I feel like I should be able to ask @datadoghq “What’s the CPU load across all our Rails controllers”, but have no idea where to start with that.

Just in case I need to do performance troubleshooting in Rails some day: [Archive.is] hey on Twitter: “@shelbyspees @honeycombio From a browser. Thinking is we had trouble even narrowing it down to a section of the site. Thinking if we could see that most of the load was in some_controller we could maybe dig in there. I don’t want to take up too much of your time, but how would a double request show up?” / Twitter

Chrome Print dialogue not offering fit to page, landscape, other printing options ( I’m looking at you @OHRA )

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/08

Some sites manage to disable various printing options (including layout, so you cannot choose between landscape and portrait any more, or force landscape when portrait works better or vice versa).

Googling this got me into a web of things that didn’t help me (see links below), but those led me to this query [Wayback] chrome save as pdf layout missing portrait landscape – Google Search.

That returned a helpful result at [Archive.is/Wayback] Chrome Print dialogue not offering fit to page, landscape, other printing options – Google Chrome Community:

I found a solution.

1.  Install the Stylus Extension.
2.  Go into the Stylus extension and click on “Write new style”.
3.  Put the following code in:
@page {
  size: auto;
}

4.  Give it a name (I called mine “Fix Orientation”) and save it.

5.  Reload the page you’re trying to print and the print dialogue should now have the “Layout” option and you should always get it for any page you print from now on.

It’s about the extension [Archive.is] Stylus – Chrome Web Store

Redesign the web with Stylus, a user styles manager. Stylus allows you to easily install themes and skins for many popular sites.

I reconfigured the OHRA Mijn Zorg site to force re-enabling of layout by adding @page { size: auto !important; } for https://mijn.ohrazv.nl/ (click the Save button to save this change permanently):
