Unlocking the Power of Doge (Ordinal Inscriptions - SOON!) with Ruby

Hello, are (generative) pixel art inscriptions (or public blockchain “graffitis”) the new warhols or tulips in 2023? The bitcon ordinals started the new craze / mania with inscriptions earlier this month, litecoin followed with inscriptions this week and can Elon Musk’s Doge be left behind? Prepare yourself and write yourself into the history books of all time with uploading / inscribing the world’s first punk doge (pixel) art collection / ordinals to the doge blockchain (database). SOON! See the - yes, in ruby - do-it-yourself (d.i.y.) step-by-step getting started (programming) guide to generate your own doge (pixel) punks and much more at the Punk’s Not Dead - Pixel Art Collection Quick Starter page / repo. Happy pixel pushing with ruby. Cheers. PS: Need inspiration? Appropriate inscribed public “graffiti” (pixel) art - see the ordinals sandbox for samples (“right-clicked & saved” with the ordinals ruby gem / machinery).

Ruby Virtual Machine does not return most of the allocated memory to the operating system even after data is collected as a garbage. It’s not a big deal for local development or console programs, but if you have a bloat in the big Rails app it might cost you a lot of money. [more inside]
