Announcing new gem: pulse

I created a new rubygem called pulse. From
the README:

Pulse adds an action to your rails project that can be used for external
health checking. The most common use is by a http proxy such as
haproxy. A proxy can be configured to hit your
servers at a specified URL to see if the
servers are healty. By default, they use the ”/” URL, but in many sites, this can have side effects
like creating a session. Pulse adds a ”/pulse” URL which has no session and no logging.

The gem adds a route using the code described here: Add routes with a
rails plugin or
gem

Check out the gem and let me know what you think.
