with RoR, there are alot of things that make building a basic CRUD
site very easy.. and really this was all i was doing.. i also found
that the routes make it much easier to build such a site..

RoR basically assumes that you are going to build a site based on a few urls..

the most important difference is that the site i was building really
was essentially a stateless CRUD site.. the complexities added by
seaside were more than i needed for such a simple site..

but they are exactly what i need for a GTD type project..

yes, i could write such and app in RoR using its ajax library and make
it really slick.. but i found the smalltalk/seaside setup a much more
productive development environment..
