Hello Mike!

Sorry for being late on this, but been hectic lately which distracted
me a bit :-P

In any case, I just wanted to let you know that I posted my position
to this in ruby-talk:


Also added some comments to your post, which I think deserve some
thank you for the community and from me!

Again, thank you for your time doing this and also for sharing your
thought with me before the release.

Take care and have a nice week!
