One thing I neglected to mention about my recent forays into learning the programming language Ruby -- we've also very recently acquired a puppy by the name of Ruby.
The two are slightly interlinked. I've been planning on learning Ruby-the-language for a while, and we started planning on getting a puppy about a month ago. We were, of course, going through the name-picking, and it was my lovely wife who suggested the name Ruby. I thought it was a nice name, and we stuck with it. At the same time, I decided to dedicate my learning of this new language to our beautiful new pup.
The only question we really have now is: what breed is she? The official word is "Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross". But, of course, cross what? Anyone want to take a guess? We've put up a gallery of photos, and feel free to e-mail her and tell Ruby what breed she is.
