Adventures with Ruby (February 4, 2005, 0) - This is my second day of Ruby, a programming language that is rather
popular in Japan. I’m in love. It’s now my second-favorite programming
language. (Emacs Lisp is, of course, the first.)
Yesterday’s script parsed schedule data and checked that monthly cost
and day constraints were observed. Today I wanted to visualize the verified schedule.
At first I tried working
Web 2.0 and entrepreneurship (May 24, 2006, 0) - From the Kagay-anon Linux Users’ Group mailing list:
sa mga hilig ug web/2
one page lang na guide; gamit kaayo..
sa mga hackers ug novell fans
The first link is a quick guide to typical Web 2.0 interface stuff.

Ruby versus Java (May 13, 2006, 0) - This is totally cool. I’m in the middle of a geek crowd discussing
Java vs Ruby, but there’s none of that “my language is better than
yours” vibe that often comes out in Linux distribution discussions. I
think what’s cool about it is that most people here use both, so we’re
just figuring out where one is better than
Ruby: Turn bash.org quotes into a fortune file (December 8, 2005, 2) - The following code turns XML quotes from bash.org (a popular IRC quotes server) into a fortune-cookie file.
Handy for using with ../emacs/flashcard.el and my ../emacs/flashcard-config.el, which pops up a fortune
every time I get a correct answer.
host = Net::HTTP.new('bash.org', 80)
if ARGV then
resp, data = host.get('http://bash.org/xml/?top&below=' + ARGV, nil)
RoR: “What’s in My Fridge” now has a shopping list (April 15, 2006, 0) - I know, I know, it’s silly, but it’s also so much fun programming little toys like this!
I’m also sketching out a life tracker that does something like Erik Benson’s Morale-o-Meter.
