Fleegix.org goes live

Well, here we are. The first entry in this Weblog, Fleegix.org. It's intended to serve as a little bit of a window on the Web into my life.

So, who am I? Since this thing is still in the very embryonic stages, I have no profile up online here. So, in the interim, I guess I can point to the writer's profile I have up on the O'Reilly Network site.

That should at least be a start, although the job info is out of date now. I've just started a new job at the Open Source Applications Foundation. And I'm pretty damned excited to be working as part of the Great Open-Source Conspiracy. Go, team!

You'll see this site grow over time into something a bit more full-featured. The software behind the site is home-grown, written in the Ruby programming language.

I actually started to do this with Typo, a Rails-based Weblog application, but found the thing impossible to set up on my Ubuntu laptop. Nice that Rails is supposed to be so easy to use, but it's not exactly a dream to set up -- especially if you don't want to use Gems. And yes, I'm compiling Ruby from source, so it shouldn't be all that hard.

So, anyhow, I'm happy to offer you Fleegix.org, I hope it proves to be both interesting and useful.
