I still can't get Ruby's DBI to run under cron and the author is of no help. I haven't heard back from Ben either about the cmd/setsid problem.
I actually tried to watch some Olympic Curling last night. Wow, that was interesting - NOT! I don't know the rules, but it basically looks like shuffleboard on ice with the added benefit of "steering" the puck.
I watched the first episode of "Strange World" last week. I'll watch again tonight. I am desperate for some good sci-fi. I wish they'd bring "Brimstone" back.
