hi fily -

  i'd say the best way to learn ruby, just like anything else is to dive 
in and try it.
  i started by reading _why's poignant guide, and then writing some 
(what now seem like) simple programs.
  _why gives you some neat ideas for simple programs to start out with 
(printing out the song 99 bottles of beer on the wall, for example...) 
try to come up with some ideas on your own too.  there are some good 
ideas like writing a leap-year calculator (based on a range of years) or 
determining what day of the week a certain date was.

  i'm using ruby, gtk2, and gstreamer now for an audio player i'm 
writing...

    play around and have fun!
