installing rmagick on osx leopard

I've put up a gist of a bash file that works (as of today) to do this from source.
You can clone it:

git clone git://gist.github.com/134823.git gist-134823

Ruby Toolbox

Just found this site (via a tweet)... seems to have a comprehensive list of rails extensions, broken down by category.
If only they linked to them!

Google's Page Speed

Google releases Page Speed - get it here - an open-source Firefox plugin similar to Yahoo's YSlow


We've (finally!) moved FilmAmora up to rails 2.2.2 - and not without some headaches.
The biggest ones seem to revolve around translations. We were using po/mo files and that worked great. Moving to 222 required some changing of gems (to fastgettext) and other things. But we were left without standard translations of all the ruby messages for some reason.

The guys at rails i18n.org came to the rescue!

Their Github project

Has config files for most locales that will cover all the standard messages. A real life saver!
