On August 19, 2009 why the lucky stiff removed every trace of his work from the Internet, including his Poignant Guide to Ruby.

I've salvaged what I could, cleaned it up a bit and saved here. He released the book under the Attribution-ShareAlike license. There's a Japanese translation of the book, although I can't tell how up to date it is.

**Update:* just found out about poignant-guide on why-archive. Also, it seems people have pushed his code repos back to the "whymirror" account.*

Interesting detail is that mirroring the site with wget didn't work very well on the Internet Archive site (maybe wget doesn't support the BASE tag) so I had to do it a bit more manually—using _why's own Hpricot library to parse all the LINK, A and IMG tags.

The original soundtrack and PDF edition are also available in the download section on GitHub.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
