Tire Weather Website

For some time now, I’ve been thinking about building a quick website to help my fellow enthusiasts in Canada to decide on whether or not they should install their high-specification summer tires. So far, this is what I’ll use to represent the idea/basic logic/basic design spec. I think that I’ll be doing this in C# since I am familiar with .NET but I’m pleasantly surprised at just how similar Ruby on Rails is to .NET MVC. Something tells me that it isn’t an accident ;).
