I've decided to give porting Matija Grabnar's File::Tail module over to Ruby a shot. I actually already have a basic implementation working, though I had to install 1.7.2 to do it. Seems there's no sysseek in 1.6.7. I see there are quite a few configurable options in Matija's module, though I'm betting 99% of us use the defaults 100% of the time. I have to decide if I want to try to duplicate that flexibility or simply add it on a user request only basis.
In gaming news, I've been playing Disciples II a lot lately. I'd describe it as a cross between Heroes of Might and Magic and Final Fantasy. It's good, but not great. Good time killer, though, and for only $30 I'm not complaining.
