Sorry for the dorky subject line…
A bit over a year ago, mid-November of 2007, James G. announced he
was retiring as the Ruby Q. master. He had run the quiz for nearly
three years, a wonderful achievement enjoyed by many Rubyists here.
Almost a year ago, mid-February of 2008, I began an attempt to follow
in his footsteps. Sad to say, though, I only lasted about 10 months.
As of now, I need to retire from running the Ruby Q…
When I started, I had made some changes in my personal life (incl.
quitting my job) that allowed me the time to write up quizzes and
summaries every week. However, nearly a year later, my personal
circumstances have changed again, and I will be unable to dedicate the
time necessary to run further Ruby Q.zes. Some of this has already
manifested by way of skipped weeks and late quizzes/submissions.
Hopefully, I’ve done reasonably well following James’ incredible
effort. I also hope that, perhaps, there will be another quizmaster to
take up from where I left off. I certainly hope so; I may not be able
to run the quiz any longer, but I’d still love to participate in some
of the lighter quizzes to follow.
Apologies to everyone that I must step down, but also many thanks to
everyone for participating and making RQ2 very enjoyable.

P.S. For those who would consider taking the reigns, I can provide the
Ruby scripts (cgi, not Rails) used to run the current site at
. As for hosting, I am open to several possibilities.
