Thank you very much for your quick reply, however, I'm confused. This 
makes no request for user input?

I tried adding into it:

'user_input = gets.chomp'

But it doesn't do anything. It didn't do anything without it. I'm 
running Ruby 1.8.3. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you again for your help.

And I apologize if I gave the impression that I'm not doing any work, 
this is only the beginning, this is just a foundation I'm trying to get 
setup.
