    Running Ubuntu, I found gems easy enough to deal with.

    Running RoR on a Mac, now, you have to do some MacPorts voodoo, and this means that you sort of have two parallel ruby installations, and you have your standard /usr/bin/gem and /usr/bin/ruby and then the /opt/local/bin/gem directories and you have to make sure which is which. This makes the usual MySQL bullshit exponentially more complex because the MacPorts install scripts for this seem to have been written in 1997 or so and have some ancient version number hard-wired into the directory and filenames. I could go on.

    I’m not proud — or tired (Arlo Guthrie).
