Due to a Ruby Weekly News scripting hiccup, for a limited time only, you can check out news from February and July of 2005 over at http://rubyweeklynews.org.
I only realized this after asking James Edward Gray II when the dates for the ICFP were set to, and he mentioned that post had been from LAST year :)
Tim Sutherland responds on RubyTalk:
Also, the “Active Record” and “Ruby on the mobile” threads were both
from July 2005.
So if you are having that sinking feeling of deja vu… fear not, you weren’t seeing things :)
