Delicious Dying?

Say it ain't so! Popular bookmarking site Delicious.com is going to be phased out by Yahoo!. So now I have to try and remember my password, way back from when I was briefly enamored with Delicious and make sure there are no gems that I bookmarked way back when, that I need to remember. Of course, if they were so important why haven't I migrated them to my browser bookmarks? Well, so many bookmarks, so little time...

Programming in Ruby. Pt. 1

I have been spending some time getting to know the programming language Ruby. I was torn between studying Ruby or Python, but I decided on Ruby due mostly to it's forgiving nature, syntactic sugar, and that line indentations are meaningless! The last reason may seem a bit trite, but I tend to code first and beautify later. I tend to write in the same manner, I don't like being weighed down with minutia while I am inspired. I'd rather write first, and do house cleaning later. Of course have a good code editor that auto indents doesn't hurt either. I haven't written anything impressive yet, but I'd still say I have learned a lot and it's only been a month!
