Time for another diary entry, methinks.
Sarah and I are moving to Menlo Park next week. It's just a couple of miles up the road from where we are now in Palo Alto, but trying to get DSL organised for the new place is proving to be a great challenge. Even now, I'm not sure we'll be able to make the move without some period of downtime.
Ruby-DICT finally made it out the door a month or so ago. That's another project destined for total obscurity. Still, I find it very useful for my own use, so it wasn't without purpose.
This month's project was borne out of necessity at work last week. I needed an interface to CrackLib to enable me to check the strength of user-supplied passwords, but no such interface existed for Ruby. As is the ideal, I wrote one, which is no small feat for one who sucks so badly at C.
Anyway, check out Ruby-Password if you have a similar need.
Work is getting busier and busier. It's so hard to find time for all the things I have going on in my life right now: work, continuing to gain skill at Ruby, preparing for the wedding, packing and organising our move, etc., etc. I'll be really happy to put this phase behind us.
