You asked for it, you got it! O’Reilly is now selling the Ruby Cookbook

I’ve already bought it. O’Reilly might check out their
download page, though - it comes through nice and automatically -
downloaded as a file named ‘Ruby’ - no extension - and without
any means for the browser to set the file type (on a mac where
the file type may be determined other than through the extension).

around than the dead tree version, even if it’s harder to
read on the subway.
