Yay me!  I just won a scholarship to attend a Ruby conference in Miami!  Oh dear me, I need help with the other costs of attending.  Can you spare a bit to help me on the road to a new career and life path?

As you may know, I'm currently in school for CS.  What you may not know that I'm also supplementing that with tutorials and online courses, learning skills not covered in school. Lately I've been spending more time with Ruby (a programming language, for those not in the know), and love it.  I recently had an opportunity to apply for a scholarship to the annual RubyConf in Miami, and won!  Not only will it be a great educational & networking experience, but I'll have a mentor/guide for the conference and for career advice. This is a dream come true...except for the attendance costs. The scholarship only convers the registration fee, not the lodging and incidentals. I've found a roommate, and will try to carpool, but the lodging and incidentals could be $500+.  Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
