The blog of Rahoul Baruah from 3hv Ltd

What's going on?

My name is Rahoul Baruah (aka Baz) and I'm a software developer in Leeds (England).

This is a log of things I've discovered while writing software in Ruby on Rails. In other words, geek stuff.

However, I've decided to put this blog on ice - I would ask you to check out my business blog here (or subscribe here).

Very useful if you're stuck for a product name - start with a pair of words, see what it comes up with and combine one of those words with one of the suggestions. And repeat. It's not 100% - we decided upon our product name today and nameboy said that the .com was available, but it turns out it was not. But we're grabbing the .net which is even better.
