^ does Ruby not support multiple "initialize" methods for a class???
244493 [greg.hauptma] Q1 - Does Ruby not support multiple "initialize" methods for a class?
+ 244495 [eeklund gmai] I am not sure what you want to achieve here.  There is nothing magic
+ 244496 [alex blackke] No.
+ 244497 [gethemant gm] ruby doesn't have method overloading. So no multiple initialize methods.
| 244499 [greg.hauptma] I have a class that can be created from a couple of scenarios, and for each

  244614 [perrin apoth] I've heard it said -- and I tend to agree -- that regular use of
  + 244615 [ruby anthrop] Well, it's a choice. You can either have overloading or dynamic typing, but
  | 244617 [djberg96 gma] Not true. Perl 6 will have optional static typing [1]. Sydney faked it
  | 244627 [perrin apoth] I'm a fan of Ruby's dynamic typing.  When I want type inference, I use
  | 244632 [dblack wobbl] I think the availability of the allocate method is very characteristic

^ Object/Relational Mapping is the Vietnam of Computer Science
244524 [gallitzin gm] I have searched around, but I very rarely find any mention of Ruby
+ 244543 [dangerwillro] You could describe ORM as masking a problem or you could call it
| 244704 [shortcutter ] That may be because SQL is not a programming language although it is
| + 244714 [dangerwillro] Ok, if you say so. Let's call it a describing language, but

| | | 244751 [perrin apoth] Technically, it's a "query language".  Why come up with more names for
