Topic: Can I use Ruby on Rails for this project?
Hey, right now I use just plain ol' Ruby for my website. I've got things broken down into different classes, files, etc, so things run pretty smoothly and cleanly enough... but not with any MVC concepts involved. I've considered moving my project to use rails, which may simplify my life a little.
