Ruby on Rails Odyssey

I spent a painful few hours over the past couple of weekends setting up Rails on an Windows Apache2 server. It wasn't rocket science, but the effort was complicated by a problem connecting with the server hosting the Rails documentation. Without any official documentation it took a lot of Googling for alternate sources of information and pouring over Apache docs before I got it running. The odd thing is, after all that work I don't have anything interesting to say about Rails. Sure it's cool how little code you need to write and it's fun to program in Ruby but I've yet to get really WOWed. Perhaps the real testament is that a guy with very rusty Ruby skill was able to get it up an running and make some modifications at all.
