Progress on Rails

I’ve been playing with Ruby on Rails (I wrote about my initial adventure already) in the basement while watching Big Brother and tonight, I’ve actually made real progress!!\
Maybe it’s being on vacation and not compulsively checking mail every five minutes, but I got the login stuff working, and I can actually create real records, submit them and then see them! I’ll work on updating them tomorrow night, and then on to the second model.\
When I get closer to being sure that I’ve got something I’ll actually launch, I’ll spill more details, but I think it could be a lot of fun. It’s built around something that’s really popular, but totally underserved by both large companies and the startups considered to be in the whole “Web 2.0” thing. Hopefully, it’ll fill a niche that’s not been filled yet, and I won’t make a mess of it. So far, so good.\
Maybe this would go smoother if I actually learned Ruby…
