Hi Miguel,

That is a very cool application.  To insert your script's results
directly into the Org-mode buffer try changing your header line from

#+begin_src ruby :results output


#+begin_src ruby :results output raw

as this seems like the sort of thing which would be generally useful,
would you mind if it is added to the "Library of Babel"?

Best -- Eric
