All right, my wife's at work, my kids are in bed, Lexi is sleeping. I've got Dead Poetic on my iPod, XAMPP on my thumb drive, and a brilliant new MySQL database schema created for my new bastard stepson of a side project. Time to generate some scaffolding! For this top secret project, I will write the back-end admin stuff using Ruby on Rails. For the front end, I haven't quite decided yet. I'm just not sure how RoR scales up for an external facing website, and for what I am doing it might be easier to use Java anyways, as I can write a few JSP tags to use on any of the pages, and use Velocity as the templating engine to build the special configuration page.
Then again, I just got paged for a work issue, and that trumps side projects. DAMMIT!
