comment Structuring a rails application with static data
Good point about CMS and when the data changes. Help files for example should change with the application and thus be updated as I update the project.

comment What technical details should a programmer of a web application consider before making the site public?
Also JavaScript should also use logging or atleast capture unhandled exceptions to capture errors that occur when the site is live even on the client side. For example something similar to: www.js-analytics.com

If you expect the browser to remain the same for the coming 10 years then I say go for it. Even with IE things change during upgrades, since the sandboxed webbrowser in .Net is infact IE. The upgrade to IE 8 caused some serius issues for us. But that depends on how often the application will update. An upside with a HTML GUI is that its quite simple to upgrade if you keep the HTML files hosted on disc beside the actual webserver. Isolation between the GUI and the application logic is quite well expressed in whats available in your local webserver and what the gui shows.

I don't get your question then, why dont you just go for it? What you describe ins't complex, make a webserver run locally, make a REST interface and attack it with javascript. Unless you want to do anything fancy it will work just fine. I recently did this for a server that controls a usb-stick: github.com/morkeleb/remotestick-webgui and thats the gui for a webserver that runs localy just as you describe.

Also you can create webpages locally to display offline data. It's all about finding an interface thats easy to port between environments yet can control local resources the way a browser cant.

comment How should calculations be handled in a document database
Great answer! It's more or less exactly the kind of answer I was looking for. It's good that you pointed out the amount of writes, since I hadn't thought in those terms at all.

comment How should calculations be handled in a document database
To be honest, I'm not sure, its more of a design question. Since as far as I've seen the problem is specific for Document style databases. the storage is modeled differently. Basiclly its something that would be dicussed around a whiteboard, however, you might be right.

comment How should calculations be handled in a document database
An error is aggregated over several columns, an example would be that the stacktrace shows that error occur at different locations in the code. So there is no way to precategories the errors. but remember that this is not a relational database. It stores complete documents, and its an (quite complex) aggregate over those documents that I am after.
