Pet projects:

- IT knowledge base and ticketing system.  It's been done before, but
I'm doing it a little different.  No offense to loyalists, but I'm
trying to avoid Rails and ActiveRecord

- GPS realtime mapping with console/visual for boating using
S57/ISO8211 based charts from NOAA (realtime doesn't have to be "real"
realtime, but it's an option with C extensions); probably using Shoes

- Ruby interfacing with a foodnetwork style database for personal
recipe use, but possibly for restaurateurs someday with inventory and
orders (I know, that almost sounds like severely high hopes)

These sit, unfortunately, at the wayside for the time being.  I've
built the database schema for each of these set ups, but I haven't
fully tackled the Ruby interfaces yet.

Awesome?  I'm not so sure, but it is fun!
