I've been heads-down learning Ruby on Rails at the new job. So far, so good. I'm working on an email delivery system using PowerMTA as the back-end. I didn't have too many problems writing the daily delivery selection code. I did have to stray from the framework a little to deliver using different templates. Sometimes these sorts of deviations make frameworks really collapse. Fortunately, not this time. I also wrote code to track opens which was very easy.
I celebrated by getting all my code checked into SVN and leaving the office today (Friday) at 5:01.
