[PhillyOnRails] Introductions

Hi, all.

I'm the manager of web sites at a large medical society. We've been a 
perl shop since the web sites came in house many years ago. I've been 
playing with ruby for the past eight months or so.

First (and only) rails project was a quick-n-dirty internal front end 
to a large database. Not more than a bit of customization on top of the 
scaffolding, really. More recently I've been rewriting a lot of our 
perl tools in ruby to get a feel for the language.
