My next attempt to "advertise" opal, should follow this model -- totally delishable! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPkMUU9tUqk

@elia @meh and others...I'm very sorry to announce that the Opalist newsletter is closing down. I just haven't had time in a long time to work on it (or anything Opal-related, unfortunately), and it costs money for me to use the newsletter software it was running on. I have an exported CSV list of subscribers I can give to you (the Opal maintainers) if you want to set up your own thing on Mailchimp or whatever. The site and the signup form will be offline in the next day or so. Thanks again for all the encouragement and support when it first got up and running!

@jaredcwhite thanks what you've done, has been great to have a NL. I'll gladly take the list and hopefully reuse it at least at release time, maybe someone will come up with a new list.

@jaredcwhite Thanks for what you've done. I keep thinking that I should post a newsletter, but didn't get around it yet
@elia I so want to write my pitches lie that, there's got to be something I can do with the "we'll fry anything"

@fkchang there's a place in Rome that sells "Fried stuff" ("Roba fritta") no one cares what's in it as long as it is fried 🍟
@fkchang btw, slightly different style but Chuck Testa is still one of the great marketers of our time :bear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJP1DphOWPs

@/all I'm considering dropping support for ruby 2.0 to start using kwargs in library code, anyone still using Opal with 2.0?

don't quite understand - do you opal on client and ruby 2.0 on server?

Yes I mean CRuby/MRI v2.0, by library code I mean the lib/ dir inside the gem
