Actually, there is an early version of DataVision written completely in
Ruby. There is no report design GUI; that's the main reason I switched to
Java. The Ruby version is still in production at 3Path (www.3Path.com); it
generates pretty PDF nightly reports that go out to all channel publishers
and the system admins.

I've scraped up the cash to buy a new Pilot--my third. I'll try not to
crack the screen on this one.
