Starting Ruby on Rails

The other day I thought it was about time I actually installed Ruby and see what all the hoolla balloo is with Ruby on Rails.

So far, I've installed Ruby, Rails, Mongrel and MySQL successfully following the instructions kindly linked off the Ruby on Rails page. I only encountered one problem along the way in the form of the following error when I attempted to install Rails:

$ sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies
Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::GemNotFoundException)
Could not find rails (> 0) in any repository
$

A quick search on Google didn't reveal many hits, but one hit was very useful. Once I'd followed this tip, all was well and Ruby on Rails was working perfectly on my Mac.

Now it's time to learn some Ruby on Rails and see what everyone is crowing about.
