Ruby is now ludicrously fast.

Ludicrious JIT is a Ruby 1.8 JIT which uses the libjit library that was written for dotgnu pnet's JIT core, very similar to what rubydium was trying to do. But libjit's come a long way in the last 3 (!) years, so if you're a Ruboi I suggest you try this out anyway.

It is a testament to the efforts of Rhys, Aleskey and Klaus to keep the library truly modular, reusable and independent of pnet's internals.

The biggest difference between time and space is that you can't reuse time.

Does penny arcade use Ruby on Rails. I knew that they used Postgresql, but Rails is quite a bit of stretch for an image serving system.

By the way, the most outrageous penny-arcade ever was the Fruit F**ker 2000, which they subsequently replaced with a hmmm ... And of course the ipod tribute version of the Fruit F**ker.

Do you like your peanut butter HTTP body smooth or chunked ?
