Bad news. The server hosting The Ruby Toolbox went bust on the evening of June 7th. While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.

For the time being, here is a very stripped down version of the Ruby Toolbox's contents.

Update June 13th: I'd like to invite you to join the discussion on the future of the Toolbox on github. You can also get in touch directly on Twitter.

Bluepill

Bluepill keeps your daemons up while taking up as little resources as possible. After all you probably want the resources of your server to be used by whatever daemons you are running rather than the thing that's supposed to make sure they are brought back up, should they die or misbehave.
