Insta-web chat for everyone via Lingr
I develop apps with Ruby on Rails
. I do. I do it because it's fun and Ruby is a nice language. One of the web servers that is pretty cozy with Rails is Zed Shaw's Mongrel. I was looking for some help on configuring something and I saw that Zed was using this site called Lingr as a support chat room for users of his magnificent Mongrel web sever. Logging in to the site was a snap and while looking through their "About Us" page, I noticed that you could even use images and youtube videos in your chat! How cool is that. Anyway. I like the idea of being able to set up a chat room this painlessly. It's quick, snappy, and not running on my server :) It's all right by me.
