5/18    To learn ruby, are any books other than the "pickaxe" recommended?
        \_ The new pickaxe book is very, very good.  If you want something
           online and very, very quirky, try:
           http://poignantguide.net/ruby/chapter-1.html   --dbushong
        \_ Do yourself a favor... don't.  Ruby makes javascript look fast.
           \_ Do you understand there are many cases where prototyping
              speed and correctness are more important than execution
              speed.
           \_ Quirky and usless.
              \_ Hey, I never said useful.  --dbushong
           \_ Hmmm... it's interesting that he makes a lot of attempts at
              simple explanations a metaphores, but if I wasn't a
              programmer already, I would have no idea what he's talking
              about.
           \_ That is filled with way too much useless verbiage trying
              to be clever and failing.
