Allemachtig, nog maar 161 dagen tot de huwelijk.

My Ruby hacking continues apace.

I'm writing a system to write DSA keys into a MySQL database for account management purposes. This uses the Ruby DBI and is proving very educational. I could have written this much more quickly in Perl, but I took the opportunity to get to grips with an aspect of Ruby that I wouldn't really use otherwise.

At home, I've written a simple whois client, just to try out some network programming. Perhaps I'll even release that for the hell of it.

I hope to have my Ruby coding skills up to the level of my Perl skills within a few weeks (months?), at which point I'll be able to code pretty much anything I need.

Friday tomorrow. Thank God.
