I'm Ryan Lowe, a Software Engineering graduate living in Ottawa, Canada. I like agile software development and Ruby on Rails.
I write this blog in Canadian English and don't use a spell checker. Typos happen.
» Full-time Ruby on Rails freelancer
» Full-time with Rails since May 2005
» Former committer for RadRails (now Aptana)
» I also have a few Rails side-projects in development:
1. wheretogoinTO.com Toronto nightlife
2. Hey Heads Up! TODO list and sharing
3. Layered Genealogy family history research
4. foos for foosball scoring
5. fanconcert for music fans (on hold)
Hiring Rails developers? I can telecommute by the hour from Ottawa, Canada

Next Year I'm Getting the Flu Shot
I tell you what -- I've never been hit that hard with a cold/flu before in my life. I never get headaches and I had one for three days straight. I had a moderate (101-102) fever for a few days and weakness, the chills, muscle pain and all of that fun stuff. Tons of congestion but no coughing, which was weird. And a sore throat in a pear tree.
All told I lost three and a half days of work. I probably slept 90% of the time. I feel almost better now but I'm worried I'll pass this miserable flu on to other people -- when do I get the all clear?Posted at January 29, 2005 at 06:51 AM EST
