comment Ruby and Enterprise. Any future?
It'll depend on the app. Some Enterprises have a single monolithic app, others have widely distributed components talking to each other. Ruby (IMO of course) doesn't seem to scale as well as some of the other languages out there, so it probably will make more inroads in the more distributed environments.

comment Are you able to close your eyes and focus/think just on your code?
No can do. No door to close. :-) Doesn't help that I'm next to the company shared color laser printer. We get a fairly regular stream of people wandering in/milling around, etc.

comment What's the worst programming book you've ever read?
Glad I never "upgraded" then! Second edition is still the most current one sitting on my shelf at home. :-)

comment What's the worst programming book you've ever read?
I've got that one. I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't think it was especially good either. I got what I needed out of it.

You don't run Solaris at home? I did during that window of time when it was free...

comment What are good keyboards for programming?
Wow. Really? I do believe that's the worst keyboard I've ever touched in my life (and I've had to use some truly horrible keyboards in the past!).

That's actually a second gen model there. Excellent keyboards.

comment What's it like to work in a large programming team?
I'd consider 11 to be a large team... The largest I've ever worked with was 3! :-)
