– first thoughts

Developing a new web site This web site will encourage young kids 4-13 to read, and to write about what they read. Two co-founders – Nikki Myers and Jennifer Deafenbaugh – and me, so far. Linux, Apache, Ruby/Rails, PostgreSQL. Currently hosted on Linode.

Expect to see technical issue and solutions in the weeks […]

Upgrading to ruby-1.9.2-p290

Upgrading to ruby-1.9.2-p290 on my development machines (Windows and Linux) was a breeze. There were some extra steps needed to upgrade on the server:

1. rvm get head
2. rvm reload

After that, just:

3. rvm install ruby-1.9.2-p290
4. rvm –default 1.9.2-p290
5. rvm gemset create 3.1.1
6. rvm gemset use 3.1.1 –default
7. gem install rails –no-rdoc –no-ri

and ready to roll.
