    Thanks for the clean-up, though!

    That might well have been more expensive than buying the real book and
    the end result won't be nearly as nice :-(

    Paper's cheap, time isn't. You're right that the printed/bound book
    would be much nicer (I'm assuming it doesn't have "Figure not available"
    sprinkled liberally throughout). Ah, well...time to schlep the files
    over to my buddy's place (he has a color laser that does duplex) and
    take a few dollars' value off the "things you owe me for" ledger.

    Neat language so far. I look forward to kicking its tires.

    books about Ruby at our favorite book store or web site.

    Now back to our regular programming...

    I _did_ order Slagell's book after skimming the first few chapters via
    O'Reilly's Safari page (which my employer is decent enough to have a
    site license for). If the dudes behind PR would bang out another
    edition I'd be on it like cat hair on carpet.

    FYI, I've added an index to the site now. (Click on 'INDEX >' at the top
    of the table of contents.) Unfortunately it's a bit slow to load: it's
    110k of HTML comprising over 1,500 entries. It's also rather
    naive...it's just a re-ordering of the TOC, and inclusion of all method
    references.

    Still, better'n nothing, right? :)

    If you prefer the Index to the TOC, you can have it displayed by default
    (instead of the TOC) by using the url:
