Been a little while...

Hi all, thought I would make a post and update things. I've been busy working on a couple of different gigs: My Place Media, and the Google Summer of Code. Anyway, My Place Media just ran out of money(lots of bad decisions by the guy calling the shots), so I've got a lot more time to concentrate on my GSoC project.

My GSoC project is to working on extending parts of Ruby's CGI class in C (mainly the query string parsing and multipart form parsing). My mentor for the project is Pratik Naik, a Rails Core member. I'll have some more info on how the project is coming along in another post.

Anyway, I've got some ideas for expanding RailsonEdge out a little. The first is that I've purchsed the domain name, and I have a shared host server. What I would like to do is to use my server to provide hosting for a few open source Rails apps, and let the developers of them either post to the blog, or just put in a feed from their blog. So if there is anyone out there that would like free hosting for your Rails project, to show it to the world, shoot me an email at rledge21 -at- gmail -dot- com, and tell me a little about yourself and your project.

I'm planning on posting some new tutorials very soon (maybe even doing a screencast, but I've not decided whether my voice would scare everybody off or not), and putting up a code snippet repository (similar to

Anyway, that is what is going on. Expect some posts over the next couple weeks with a couple tutorials, as well as an update to my GSoC project...later all.
