I did something new yesterday.  I did some Rails. Ruby on Rails to be exact.  It’s pretty darn neat! If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a web framework that lets you easily create and maintain database-driven websites.  You can setup a simple site in a matter of minutes!

I also played with Ruby itself today.  It’s the scripting language that Rails runs on.  I was able to do something with it that I have never been able to do with any other programming language…at least not this easily.  I wrote a script that can SSH into a server and issue a list of commands.  It will make my life MUCHO easier!  

Daniel has been trying to get me to try Rails for a long time now, but I’ve been resistent.  It wasn’t until Apple wrote an article on it that I really took notice.  Hooray Apple!  Now if they would only drop the prices of their Intel products…..
