Good Timing! Agile Web Dev w/ Rails

Hi, guys -

I'm revisiting your book and actually doing some real development with RoR this time. It's just amazing how fast the scaffolds get you going.

It's now really trivial to get going using the supported port of rails on FreeBSD 6.2. That's a big improvement over the already-simple ruby+webbrick+mysql+gem+rails install of a year ago.

I've used many different environments for web development, and I have to say that the Rails system combines elegance with rapid development with complete customization.

In truth, I don't have any questions right now, and that's a testament both to Rails as a project and to your writing. Thanks a whole bunch!
