He likes to pretend he has a secret identity, but can't come up with a good superhero name. He's settling for "Roob", for now.

Claim Book http://paul.annesley.cc/ Paul Annesley Is there really meant to be a thirty second advertisement at the start of the video? http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich No, there isn’t :(. I was trying to make a splash screen, and it ended up too long. Fair point. I’ll shorten it considerably for the next screencast. Still learning the ways of screencasting… Thanks for the feedback. http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich Actually…I am recreating it now with much shorter lead-in….will post new version today. http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich Oh…crap…there is an actual advertisement. I had no idea….I thought you meant the splash screen. That ad is (I think) inadvertant….fixing….(I hope) http://paul.annesley.cc/ Paul Annesley Nice :) In my case, it’s an ad for a bank.. doesn’t scream relevance ;) http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich Nope….:) Ads were on by default on our blip.tv account. Have to re-up the bloody video to have it encoded without them. There it’s up ad-free. Thanks for pointing that out. (My ad was for a cruise….btw) Nik Hi there, do you know if this works with Ruby 1.9.3? http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich 1.9.3 is listed if I do a `pik list -r`, so it will install 1.9.3. Is that what you mean? th First of all, thank you! Great work. I have a question about gemsets. Are you planning on implementing gemsets so one ruby version could use a different set of gems? Or maybe this works today and I’m missing something. http://www.ruprict.net/ Glenn Goodrich It doesn’t look like the devs have gotten to this, but, there is a issue on their github repo that has some ideas of how to do this: https://github.com/vertiginous/pik/issues/16 You could give that a shot…hope it works.
