Thanks all for your many useful suggestions.

I realized how much work it would be to do a good presentation, so I
just punted, talked for half an hour about why I was learning ruby, and
tried to give enough of a feel for the language people could see what
was neat.

Went OK, I'm told.

Thanks, again, for all the help.

Cheers,
Sam
