Hiding Ruby tasks in Windows display

Hi,
I've got a PC acting as a server that only runs Ruby scripts, using the
Windows task scheduler. If I sit down at that PC I'm constantly
bombarded by command shells opening and closing as these scripts fire
off and on. In DOS and Windows there are ways to hide windows from
displaying. Is there any way to hide window display in Ruby?
Thanks,
Peter

I hope memory serves correctly but is there not a rubyw.exe that
avoids that behavior?

Thanks, Robert. I've found out about rubyw in the pickaxe book and I'll
investigate further. It sounds perfect for me.
