Today I discovered a very funny programming guide: Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby. You should take a look even if you are not a programmer and don’t know what Ruby is and even if you are not even slightly a geek, because there are cartoon foxes who like chunky bacon and sidebars with suggestions on how to pirate the contents of the book in strange ways. And this, which had me convulsing with suppressed laugher at work:
Seven Moments of Zen from My Life
1. 8 years old. Just laying in bed, thinking. And I realize. There’s nothing stopping me from becoming a child dentist.
So why am I reading a Ruby programming guide, however amusing? I think I’m going to attempt to install and muck around with Ruby on Rails, which is a web programming framework that’s been getting a lot of buzz in the last year, and I think could be useful for certain Major Project Ideas I’m pondering. I’ll post links to anything interesting I manage to whip up.
