I just purchased a new piece of hardware to try to learn some of the latest pieces of software that I've been learning about. One of the first things I've wanted to experience was Xen, an open-source hypervisor that I've heard a lot about. Unfortunately, finding all the information I needed hasn't been easy. But I determined that I should be able to get it to work after following this guide. The key is to download the pre-built version of Xen, then try following all the steps in that guide. I'll be posting results here soon.

I just created a nice tutorial for installing JRuby on Windows. JRuby is great because it combines the power and features of Java, with the strength and elegance of Ruby! JRuby can also run Ruby on Rails, and is very nicely integrated with Java, giving you access to Java excellent resources, such as Swing.
