Is this blog ever going to be *for us* again? I don't come here very often any more because all the articles are simply singing the praises of whatever new thing Jeff Atwood is working on today.

Lol... To all those who say serious software shouldn't be built with Ruby and it isn't a good language and all that, I have only one thing to say... Every satellite launched by Ball Aerospace in the past few years was ground tested with a Ruby application. End of statement.

I have been reading this blog for many years now, and this is your best post ever.

+1 whoever said "ergonomic" means very little other than "designed for fat people" - When I use one of those, I have to hold my arms in a very unnatural position, and it feels like I'm trying to air out my pits or something. Also, those who are defending their poor typing skills - I think you are missing the point. It has nothing to do with your actual speed - it's that poor typing skills represent a deficiency in the usage of YOUR PRIMARY TOOL for getting the job done - and I'm not just talking about the job of writing code, which is only maybe 10% of the job of "computer programmer" - if you can't type, you've ignored the opportunity to become proficient in something you use every day, and that is a bad quality in a programmer. It doesn't represent a lack of skills, it represents an attitude that Jeff (and myself and many others) thinks is important. It may have taken a long time to paint the Sistine Chapel, and there is little doubt that it is very well done. However, what do you think would be the effect on the quality and time to execute, if Michelangelo didn't know how to use a paint brush? Or even better, what if Michelangelo couldn't properly demonstrate his ability to paint? Would he have been hired for the job? You can not deny this. Don't defend your poor skills - learn your tools better.
