Can you read this?

Got an email today, I have seen it before and I am sure it has been going around for years. This time, I thought that I would do an exercise and create a plugin that duplicates what I found in this email. See for yourself.

Here is the email I got:

What I gathered was that the only important letters are the first and last letter of each word, those have to be in the right order. So the rest of the letters can be in any random order. That is what I did - I created a plugin and put it out on github. You can install it like this:

./script/plugin install http://github.com/pullmonkey/can_you_read_this.git

And use it like this:

#in your views
<%= can_you_read_this("hello, can you read this?") %>

Have fun.
