    I can give a presentation on profiling in Ruby / Rails if you'd like. It would be a good follow-up to set_trace_func from last time (since Ruby uses that in it's own implementation ... but I'd mostly cover the ruby-prof gem). I don't know if it'd be 45 minutes, but it might be a good 20-30 minutes... of course it depends on how much interaction/questions there are.
