I guess Outlook messed up my post because I hit reply.  I should use a
real client.  Here it is again, sorry if you saw it twice.
 
 
Just looking for some advice, about that boring ruby BBS that I'm always
rambling on about...
...I got the fido, and the smtp working... so I'm looking for a new
challenge, and it would be nice to actually have someone use the bloody
thing, so I thought, I'll hook it up to html...
 
What's the best way to code this?  If I had designed this thing properly
from the get-go, I could just write a separate cgi script in e-ruby ...
as *most* of the data is stored in a postgres database.
 
The only stuff that isn't in postgres, is the user data, because it
would mean major surgery to change this (because of my poor design...
there are loads of places in the code where the program directly looks
at data.  
 
Anyway, I thought of just building a ruby web server into the program,
in fact I've started playing with this... so should I do this, or go
though a major re-write to put the user stuff in postgres?  As far as
http sessions go, can I assume that I'll keep the same TCP session for
an entire "user" session, or do I need cookies?  And if so, how can my
web server keep track of this?
 
Seems like this will be one of those educational projects... again...
