Random thoughts, ideas and experiences

Where’s Ruby and Rails?

There is a lot of attention being given to PHP, Perl and Python on this blog. Where’s Ruby? And where’s Ruby on Rails?

Setting up disjoint web pages never did appeal to me. Ofcourse, blogging has been around for years but I never felt the urge until recently.

Anyway, you can expect posts that cover diverse topics. I’m a geek at heart so you may find a bias towards programming and software toys. We’ll find out over time.
