has anyone here done some coding with xmpp4r?
I've ran into a slight stumbling block.
adding/removing items from the roster appears to hang the roster helper.

|hachiya||anyone know of any ruby apis for interfacing with usenet? i will search RAA, but just wondering if anyone has used any themselves|
|kmeyer||none that I know of|
how can i check if a variable has been defined?
can i simply do if some_var ... end ?
|manveru||see, your sentence already had the answer :)|
|elux||haha. right you are|
ruby is quite the intuitive language
|RUEbaiYaT||I often wonder if I was lucky that I learned Ruby before Python ? :)|
|sam-j||I learned Python first and didn't bother to learn Ruby because at a cursory glance they're similar. then i sat down and really learned some ruby and it just felt more natural to me.|
i'm not forgetting python or anything
|RUEbaiYaT||sam-j: I don't like that tabs determine a 'block'.|
sam-j: I mean, I get nervous that I forget a tab or two ;)
|desp||uh, has Time.parse been renamed?|
the web docs and ri shows parse as a class method
but I'm unable to call it in irb, I think
|teferi||are you sure?|
and did you require 'time' first?
|desp||oh, I did not.|
thanks...but why does Time.parse need a require 'time', while Time.now doesn't?
|teferi||because require 'time' pulls in a file that adds some methods to Time|
|RUEbaiYaT||terferi: I am going to add that to my top 100 reasons why I love to hate Ruby ;)|
|desp||I wish this would be mentioned in the docs|
|teferi||ruby classes are open|
anything can reopen a class and add methods
|RUEbaiYaT||Ruby, as a language, probably scares Bill Gates.. since its so open.|
|RyanTM||Is it a security risk leaving a Rakefile open to the web behind an Apache server not configured to run Ruby.|
