So cool!

About the semicolon redundancy: it has been discussed a lot of times in 
this newsgroup, but I started programming in ruby some time ago and I 
can tell you I prefer to not type thousands of those redundant 
semicolons to once in a while spend 5 or 10 seconds to understand that 
the error the interpreter is talking about is about a misinterpretation 
of what I wrote. Note that this "once in a while" might have happened 
two or three times in about seven months of work. I prefer not to type 
those many semicolons and parenthesis. :-)
