Oracle is offering to buy Sun at $9.50 per share (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090420/ap_on_bi_ge/oracle_sun).  That is bad news for Sun, Java and MySQL.  Sun bought MySQL and I thought it was a great idea to compete with Oracle.   Now MySQL is under Oracle and you know Oracle is going to kill MySQL because they don’t want free open source database to compete with their product.  It is time to fork MySQL to a different open source project so that it won’t be controlled by Oracel.

Just created a website called MoMingle.com using ror plus a few plugins including geo-kit and twitter4r.  It allows people to post location-based messages.  It is definitely a good learning experience for me to design and build this website.
