http://www.opensearch.org/Home as implemented on openguides installs http://london.randomness.org.uk/ in firefox your search box icon should change colour click on the icon and it should ask you at the bottom if you want to add it. the rest is merely an implementation detail.

  • tests not run by default when you install
  • lots of gems now on github and dont make it to rubyforge
  • people have personal gem repos which you have to use sometimes.
  • up until gem1.3 installs would use a gig of ram.

there is one relatively nice feature. running a local repo is as easy as typing gem server

that statistics can mean anything that anyone one wants. there was a great one in the daily mail the other day. Do smokers pay more in tax than they recieve in benefit from the nhs? Yes. in an average year a smoker pays 950 quid of tax and receives 150 quid of nhs benefit. shame they didnt point out the mutliple thousands it costs the year they die of lung cancer. or indeed the people who die from passive smoking :)
