A Possibility

A co-worker just asked me to look at his database ERD--a butchered version of Northwest Pubs (one of Microsoft's example DBs), to handle VA publication references.

I thought, "whoa, he could have this up in running in a few hours with Rails." I've been trying to sell rails to this co-worker for over a year now, so when I told him my thought this morning, he was prepared for it: ruby wasn't a foreign concept to him anymore. His response was "that's what I wanted to hear!".

We're scheduling some pair-programming to give it a whack in the near future.

Another co-worker overheard the conversation. ...He then asked me what I thought about another web-application...
