A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time software developer: most of my time in recent years has been spent writing Rails, though I've dabbled in many other things and like most people who have been writing code for decades I can learn new stuff as needed.

Currently I'm unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Computing in the cloud is a basic look at Amazon's EC2, which is such a neat concept that it really feels like there must be a use for it.

Review: An MS Office Alternative To Think About is about the fifth review of ThinkFree I've seen this week. I hope they're buying a really nice Christmas present for their PR people.

A Method to Their Madness

A Linux start-up on the path to profits is a News.com story based on an interview with Canonical/Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth. It's sort of comforting on one level to know that there's a serious business plan behind the Linux variant that I'm using to write this, but on another level, I'm not sure it matters -it's not like the software is going to explode or my non-existent license will expire if Canonical goes under.
