New Plugin for Rails

Inspired by Actual Events

Since we often see organizations which do little to improve themselves. I have written a new Rails plugin to help them along the way.

If you have a Rails project with a bunch of code that does not work well together, this plugin is for you.

The plugin, called Acta as Manager, basically does nothing. Leave it in place for 2 1/2 years, then check and see if your project has improved. When the inevitable inevitably happens, blame the plugin and uninstall it.

Q) Where can I get Acta as Manager?
A) I wouldn't try github or rubyforge, as they may actually have code there which does something. /dev/null is a better repository for a do-nothing plugin.

Q) Is Acta as Manager Open Source?
A) Since there is no source, I guess not. You can't legally modify nothing without permission.

Q) What does Acta as Manager do?
A) Acta as Manager does nothing.

Q) How does Acta as Manager help my bad project?
A) Your project will fail, and you will waste time finding something to blame for a post-mortem. Acta as Manager provides exactly that, prepackaged for you. Effectively, it makes useless work more efficient.

Q) How do I install Acta as Manager?
A) ./script/plugin install acta_as_manager
