Here is an update on what I am doing (I try to post at least once a week).
I am still employed, so that is good. They are hiring a lot of people, so things are a bit chaotic.
I am still working on a side Rails project, helping a local developer upgrade from Rails 2 to Rails 3.
I did upgrade a few of my apps on github from Ruby 1.9.3 to Ruby 2. So far it all seems to be working.
I am also trying to port a DNS server written in Java to Groovy, and also picking up some Gradle in the process.
