Hey, Kevin:

Congrats on starting the new adventure, your job coding Ruby!

Re:"A message from Kevin Neelands to all members of Ruby Town on CodeTown!

Just starting with Ruby on Rails.  I found one I.D.E. called JetBrains RubyMine, and I'm trying to install the Dynamic Language ToolKit in Eclipse.  Does anyone have suggestions for the best I.D.E?

Visit Ruby Town at:
http://www.codetown.us/groups/group/show?id=2197786%3AGroup%3A3690&xg_source=msg_mes_group"

This question would be better posted as a Codetown Discussion in the Ruby Town group so everyone could benefit from the responses. FYI, activity in a Discussion gets emailed to all members of the umbrella Group it's posted in. 

Plus, all Codetown members will see the posting in Codetown's activity log.
