I would agree. Ruby frustration is (for me at least) more of a knock on the company support. I'll get the Ruby going again - probably similar to yours in that I'll transform it into something else....within $ reason, of course.

It remains a cheap platform to exercise my own madness (i.e. replacing safety valve with bolt, etc).
