Doing client work for Upstream, I recently had the pleasure of pair programming with fabulous Pat Allan for a month. Here are a few of the things I learned.
Pair Programming is a good thing (not that I haven't known that before). Here is yet another good article about pairing if you aren't convinced yet. Next to improved concentration, keeping each other from getting stuck in stuff, I like the sharing of best practices, Textmate short cuts, syntax tricks etc.
Instead of writing "puts" in, after and before blocks that don't act as expected, use ruby-debug. It's really easy, and gives you so much more information about your situation.
