    The first batch of Ruby Stuff left jaws dropping and had developers all
    over the world stepping through the site in slow motion to take it all
    in. Now the selection of personal peripherals has been updated to
    include Rails T-shirts and coffee mugs.

    http://www.rubystuff.com/


    See the new Rails shirts:
    http://www.rubystuff.com/shirts.html


    See the new Rails mugs:
    http://www.rubystuff.com/shirts.html


    Ruby Stuff is the premiere shop for Ruby shirts, mugs, mouse pads, and
    more. Money raised from Ruby Stuff helps pay for ruby-doc.org and
    rubyxml.com

    Learn more about rubystuff.com:
    http://www.rubystuff.com/about.html



    Enjoy!

    P.S

    As the source graphics for the Rails logo were so generously made
    available by David Heinemeier Hansson and Jon Hicks
    (http://media.rubyonrails.org/logo/rails_logo_remix.ai), I've made
    available the png files used for the shirts and mugs:

    Heh. This series is already available from
    http://www.cafepress.com/rails_stuff, which uses small print on the
    front and the big logo on the back. That shop is also selling the
    stuff without the $2 markup used at the rubystuff.com shop.

    If you for some reason or another should prefer the old design that
    just has the big logo on the front, these items are also already
    available without the $2 markup at
    http://www.cafepress.com/rubyonrailsshop.

    In case anyone else missed the announcement, it's at
    http://weblog.rubyonrails.com/archives/2005/07/09/get-your-rails-swag-and-w=

    Hmm seller calls it "money raised" (donation) and competition calls it
    "markup".

    The blood of the capitalist battlefield!

    Heh. As previously explained, both on ruby-talk and on rubystuff.com,
    the markup is used to fund Ruby sites. On either Rails-wear site,
    CafePress makes the same amount of a purchase, but if you care to throw
    a few bucks towards ruby-doc.org and rubyxml.com, a purchase from
    RubyStuff helps out.

    CafePress also allows people to make their own one-off shirts by
    uploading their own graphics. You pay the base, no mark-up, price.

    With assorted sources for Rails source graphics, there's no end to what
    people can come up with to suit their tastes.

    http://rubystuff.com/images/rails/
    http://media.rubyonrails.org/logo/rails_logo_remix.ai

    Don't care for CafePress? Take the graphics and pick a different source.

    The Ruby community is all about choice.

    Oh, but it *is* a markup, over what CafePress is going to charge no
    matter what. There's no secret about that, and it makes no difference
    what it's called. At the end of the day, it goes to help the Ruby
    community.

    Well, this is hardly a battlefield, really.
