Get out your party balloons and funny hats because we’re there, baby. Yes, sire, Rails 1.2 is finally available in all it’s glory. It took a little longer than we initially anticipated to get everything lined up (and even then we had a tiny snag that bumped us straight from 1.2.0 to 1.2.1 before this announcement even had time to be written).

I've had this horrible head cold for three straight days now. Sudafed had to put it's old Pseudoephedrine-based product behind the counter of the pharmacy due to abuse. Seriously? Dude... I want to get TOTALLY decongested tonight... let's drop six boxes of the little red pills. I look at their FAQ but nothing was written about if this new PE stuff actually works and so far, I'd have to say no. I am still region's #3 phlegm producer. Bah!
It seems KF and LMH of MOAB went to great lengths to "test" their latest exploit before posting it. Around 10pm PST, many users of the Colloquy IRC client began dropping off the freenode network as KF and LMH "tested" their malicious script on real users. Linked is a discussion with proof that they originally attacked the #macdev channel.

Yeah, I know this is simple and about once a year I have to do it and always forget how to do it. So I figured if I blogged about it, maybe I'd actually remember it, or remember that I can search my own blog. :-)

Today I installed Ruby on Rails, MySQL, and all related items on my Machine. It was a mostly painless process due to some great guidance from Christopher. However, we did run into one problem when trying to install the MySQL API module for Ruby. When running make from the command line, I experienced a number of errors starting with mysql.c:2018: error: 'ulong' undeclared (first use in this function). Ick. So thanks to a Google search, I found myself at nano Rails - a site dedicated to development, testing, and hosting of Ruby on Rails. Great stuff and this page solved my problem. (I had to add '#include "my_global.h"' to mysql.c (as the first #include) before I executed the make command.) So simple and boom, it worked! Thanks Pascal!
So if you happen to be stuck in the waiting room for Newton Wellesley Urgent Care in Waltham (or the Children's Hospital West) they have free patient WiFi. "Welcome to the Children's Hospital Patient and Family Wireless Hotspot. To access the wireless system you must read and accept the terms and conditions by clicking the Accept Terms button below." I accepted them. I'm crazy like that.
Why don't all doctor's office offer this? Steve would approved.

Jeff Paradiso, his wife Kim, and Russel have done it again! Wait, have they done it before? Well probably many times. They hand painted Russell and Christina's room for the birth of their pending child... (odds on it being named Joshua anyone?) Check out the rest of the pictures on FunOnAStick.
I received a few comments from people wondering why I didn't have an entry about the new year... something along the lines of trying to post every day, blah blah blah. I tried that before. It wasn't be successful... so I'll just have to try to post occasionally, regardless of any calendar change. Oh wait, I just noticed I can backdate this. Ok, ignore everything I just posted. I actually posted this on January 1st! Happy new year! - And no, it's not Happy New Years - duh.
