  • With 500 million members and an ambition to push people towards public sharing, Facebook is probably not the best place to post and share photos of you napping at your desk or partying hard at last night’s booze fest.

Orson passed away

Monday evening Alice took Orson to the vet, he had fluid around his lungs and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He came home with some medicine but was having labored breathing and barely able to walk around. By Tuesday evening around our bedtime he started moaning meowing and was panting like he ran a marathon. Alice took him to the cat ER where he passed away. Orson was a 13 year old Persian and has been with Alice since 1998 in Chicago, Seoul Korea and Lexington, KY with Tilda and I.

  • The koans are broken out into areas by file, hashes are covered in about_hashes.rb, modules are introduced in about_modules.rb, etc. They are presented in order in the path_to_enlightenment.rb file. Each koan builds up your knowledge of Ruby and builds upon itself. It will stop at the first place you need to correct. Some koans simply need to have the correct answer substituted for an incorrect one. Some, however, require you to supply your own answer. If you see the method __ (a double underscore) listed, it is a hint to you to supply your own code in order to make it work correctly.
