I've just finished a short howto for YAML beginners called: Yaml In Five Minutes If you don't know what YAML is, check it out and send me any feedback. YAML support in now built into the Ruby programming language and has building roots in the Perl world as well. I've really, really, really been enjoying Luck Wander Boy. I have only momentarily put the book down today. I will finish by nightfall. It's not an outrageously funny or sad book, but it is good enjoyment. The Pac-Man stuff is absolutely brilliant. Pick it up at the bookstore and read just the first essay on Pac-Man. It's like five pages into the book. Or, here's excerpt from the site.
