Ruby
Today I went to esteve's talk about Ruby, RoR and AJAX. It was an open talk, so all people who wanted to be there could come. Next to me was sitting a really young boy, so Ruby's future is assured :P. I learned some new things that can be useful and some practices to create more accessible web pages.

I think these contents are worth a subject at UB.

Here's an example of what you can do if you like to waste your money (or if you want to suicide in a geeky way).

I have been tidying up and cleaning my IRC hangman bot's code. I removed ~15 lines, so now it has 315 lines of code and comments. I'm considering to support multilanguage gaming, so anyone can choose (if present) his favourite language.

Yesterday I received an e-mail from fxn. Thank you for your comments and advices. As you can see, I followed them :P

haruspex, sorry, I was using a catalan wordlist file. Your word could be encanyonis (means somewhat as "aim to something/someone") or ensangonis (could be used to politely say "to leech"). Now (15:30 GMT+1) the bot is running an English wordlist downloaded from here. Thanks for playing :).

My first post

I just joined advogato, set up my account and now I'll try to write a little post.

BTW, I finished my perl project yesterday. It's an IRC bot whom you can play hangman. You can test it if I'm online :) at server irc.freenode.net, channel #lds-orique. My girlfriend and some classmates tested it, and it seems to be bug-free... Time to add some extra capabilities :P

I'm sorry if I make mistakes writing... I hope writing at advogato helps me to improve my English too...
