Fri Jul 28 2006 17:47: No one's reading this because Crummy's nameserver died. Kevin's putting together another one. In the meantime, I'd like to point out that I'm not the only one doing promotional tutorials. Among other things, Lucas gave an OSCON talk on distributed programming with DRb and Rinda. He had everyone with a laptop stop typing snide comments into an IRC channel and run his distributed Ruby code, creating an ad hoc SETI@Home project to find prime numbers. Pretty slick.
