There is scarce doc out there on how configure ruby gems on windows. Create a .gemrc file [if it doesn’t exist already] here
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\home\.gemrc
Add the following line:
gem: –no-ri –no-rdoc
and viola – new gem installs will be that bit quicker
Update: The above only works for older versions of Windows
For Win 7 / Server 2008 create the .gemrc here c:\users\<user\.gemrc
I fully expected myself to get out of the habit of blogging at least once a week. I’ve been on holiday [twice] and it only takes a few weeks away from the world of software development to let something slip.
Anyway, I’m back. Honest.
I’m off on holiday for the next two weeks so before being largely disconnected I thought I’d point you in the direction of wordle. It’s a tag cloud creator and works based on an RSS or ATOM feed, or any text you paste in. Here is the cloud for this blog
As you can see it produces very nice images and the fonts, colours and layout are all customizable. I think I might start adding a tag index to all docs I produce to give people a visual clue of the content.
Happy coding and see you in a couple of weeks.
