Holy crap, Jon, you've saved my entire evening! I just spent the better part of the day trying to get rails installed with mysql on Win7 and I finally found your guide. Excellent work! Everything worked perfectly and I can finally start learning a thing or two. Thank you!

That's very cool Jeff -- thanks for letting me know.  To find out it's been a help is very rewarding.  All the best as you begin to learn Rails!  :)

People ,directors ,writers have seem to lost the craft, basics . Any word that is over used becomes monotony . It's like saying "uh" all the time . Words like "Fuck " Should be used very very sparingly for the simple reason they lack impact if you over use them ! Example no cussing throughout an entire movie then suddenly an old lady says " FUCK YOU ! " now that's shock and awe >funny ! Because you did not expect it ! Same goes for excitement . To create a high point you need low points ! Blam Blam Blam from the start to the finish does exactly the opposite to what was intended >to create excitement ! This goes for painting , music , writing and movies ! Pretty simple >start low >hit a high >drop down again >start over ( up down ,up down , several times ) then punch line ;-)

I'm really enjoying Un Lun Dun by China Mieville. Anyone else read this? What did you think?

I'm so sorry, Sean. I had no idea it was your block. I'll call you next time I'm around.

When was the last time a comic surprised you? Really surprised you?

If you're using a javascript enabled modern browser, give this link a click and scroll down to read:

http://comic.naver.com/webtoon/detail.nhn?titleId=350217&no=20&weekday=tue

Neat trick, hunh?

This is one of those interesting cases where the insertion of motion (or the illusion of it by hijacking the scrollbar) doesn't automatically tear at the fabric of the medium. It still feels like comics, because that static juxtaposition is maintained (a bit like comics that use looped motion, one of which I wrote about on my site last year: http://scottmccloud.com/2010/08/24/why-it-works/).

Hope others will give it a try. Adding the ingredient of reader presence to the mix could open up a lot of interesting possibilities, especially for genres like horror which thrive on keeping the reader at least partially in the dark.
