Some time ago I wrote simple script to monitor installed ports on FreeBSD machine (original post It works quite well and shows me what is happening on some machines which are manage not only by me. And leaves some trace after handy portupgrade -a command ;-))

But when many ports are upgraded at once output from this script becomes mess and it is hard to read what was added/removed and upgraded. Well it happens when change relates to two ports, neighbours in alphabetical sequence. Diff output with my modifiers becomes unacceptable. So I rewrote it and yes, it is now in Ruby.
