Listened last night during a drive and loved it. Honestly it has me really thinking about trying Rails. I want to do some more research on it but might try a side project using it!

It's definitely worth a look. Around the new year, I was able to put together a functioning forum-like system with threads based around punctuation (a gesture towards interrupting someone at a natural breaking point) in...probably around thirty hours, scattered in hour-or-less chunks.

Granted, it's not a much better experience, like it was ten years ago (the last time I worked with Rails) in a world where web frameworks were all trying to catch up, but it was still easy enough to get it running.
