Kudos to Dr. Nic for this one. At least a discussion filled with arrogance and finger-pointing turned out something useful.

I worked on a similar problem two weeks ago and came up with a pretty similar solution, though without the fanciness of just defining new databases in database.yml and having the classes in corresponding modules automatically.

To sum up: no jealousy, I'm just glad other's have taken a very similar approach. I just wish, Alex Payne of Twitter would've given this interview a little earlier.

So this is it. My new blog. It doesn't look like much, but I'm working on it. Here's where I'll write about my adventures as a freelancer, things related to Rails and things that bother me, things I like and my view on life as a freelancer and Mac OS X nerd.

So what is Paperplanes? Paperplanes is the name of my business as a freelancer.

Who are you? I'm an almost 30-year-old freelance software developer, living in Berlin/Germany. I've been freelancing for almost a year now, and so far I can't complain.

What do I do? I used to do a lot of Java-based work. You can read the results of that over at my Java-related blog Javaddicts.

So why a new blog? As a freelancer, I've been doing much more than program Java. Lately I find myself writing more and more apps with Rails which I really enjoy.

What's gonna happen next? The design for the page has been in my drawer for almost a year now, and it's time to finish it. So that's what I'll do.
