config this!

A year or two ago, when I first started getting interested in Ruby on Rails, I would read all the marketing and it kept saying "no config files". Over, and over, and over again. At the time I was working in PHP; all I had to worry about was httpd.conf and php.ini.

Now I'm working on a Java project. It's a big, existing code base and every thing's ready already. Still, it only took about three weeks before the realization hit: "Oh, this is what the're talking about." Cripes, you need to config your config files with config files. Give me RoR any day.
