One thing that might be hindering my pursuit of new unstarted rails projects is that, when I taught myself rails, it was, like, 1.2.something. As of this afternoon, rigel's got 2.2.2 installed. Lots of things have changed in that time, including a lot of does-it-for-you stuff that I'm used to doing myself. I haven't done a very good job keeping up with the changes. Maybe I should finish watching the Railscasts. I'm a bit behind (uh, september?), and find it includes a lot of tidbits I wouldn't've thought of or didn't know about. And, probably go thru the changelogs or something.
