Rails on the Weekend? Why?????

Well, this weekend I had to write some Rails stuff. Once I did the work stuff that I had to do on Saturday morning while I'm sure some kids watched some cartoons. I then decided to revisit something that I used to contribute to.

The result of a couple hours of hacking is this:

http://code.google.com/p/dogonrails/

That's right. DogOnRails! I used to advocate running WifiDog hotspots back in the day. The problem that I had with Wifidog is that it was hard to run unless you had a dedicated server running Postgres. There was no way to run it on Shared hosting for just your one hotspot. So, I decided to hack this thing together.

It's pretty much just written for my old WRT54G running OpenWRT, but I might do something interesting with it. It's under GPLv2, so check it out!
