To The Resque
Okay. I've always wanted to play around with background jobs so, as with all my stuff, I looked for something that I could easily deploy to Heroku. I found Trineo's Resque example and, after a fare amount of wrangling, managed to get it going. Thing was: I only wanted this to work on a single dyno. As it turns out, Unicorn allows you to get a couple of workers running. I think. Either that or I'm going to cop a charge (not) from Heroku.
