Hehe, yeah it's me. Glad you like Mongrel. I'm actually using Lua actively in another project I've been tinkering on called Utu: http://utu.devjavu.com/
Lua's being used in the server as the main way to code the server's logic and control. I really like Lua for this kind of embedded control and man is it a great cool language that's well documented.
> Roberto, you might also consider Safari online book service?
Safari has "interesting" side effects for authors. I really haven't got a straight answer as to whether I get royalties from Safari users or not. I know A/W and other O'Reilly partners get a cut, but the royalty question really was never answered.
Then again, most tech book authors don't plan to make any money on them. It's more for the clout. Roberto is in a different situation where he does want to make money from the book sales, but most publishers charge too high of a premium for what's basically a paypal+download service.
