As a follow up to my last post, I finished my experiments with Ruby on Rails. Simple stuff really, a couple of very simple tables with a many-to-many relationship managed using some nifty Ajax drag'n'drop.
Most of the time was spent fathoming out the Ajax stuff to get it to do exactly what I wanted. I had a sort of 'light on' moment when I realised that changing objects around in my [session] could directly update the DB, without doing an explicit 'save'. Pretty cool all round.
Webby stuff still doesn't 'fry my ham', to use a Downeyism and of course I had absolutely no style but that's what all those web designers are for right?
