What does the shoes console do?
The console allows you to see Shoes (actually ruby) errors and messages when programs are running, and sometimes put your own messages from your program.
Most of the time users won't need it when they are following the tutorials, but it's handy to have when you are trying some of your own programs and you are trying to work out why it doesn't run.
You will have worked out that the console can be opened with Alt+/ (or Mac OSX command+/), but some might not.
