An administrative Snafu combined with travel to hurricane-tormented North Carolina combined to create the late publication of this podcast. Undeterred, we bring you the news of Steve's resignation, a few JRuby stories, a Guard howto, a new content management system, a few useful tools for dealing with ActiveRecord performance and reporting, and a great resource for Sass beginners and experts alike.
