I have two joost invitations to give away.
I will give them to two users who leave a comment here.
If there are more than two by the 7th March 2007 I will give the invitations to the user that gives the best reason for getting an invitation.
If you want to download MP3s or videos try Dargens share your life, share your files, be intimate.

ItsDargens.com is back online.
Looking to have new look and feel up by end of Tuesday Chinese time.
Then sort out bugs and get working Beta by end of week.
Aim of the site is to allow people to download files from their old or new friends person to person rather than via internet.
This will make transfers quicker and more private.
The site will also list groups of people and the type of files they are sharing in both a public and private searchable index.

- Ruby on Rails
- Configuration of Rails
- Apache http configuration
change directory to a temporary and get the Ruby rpm files from the web:
wget http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/ruby-mysql-2.7-8.el4.centos.i386.rpm (NO NEED TO LOAD IF YOU HAVE A DB)
wget http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/ruby-postgres-0.7.1-4.el4.centos.i386.rpm (NO NEED TO LOAD IF YOU HAVE A DB)
Use rpm –ivh packagename to install
Download latest Gems:
tar zxf rubygems-0.9.2.tgz
sudo ruby setup.rb
Ruby on Rails
sudo gem install rails
Install mysql bindings
sudo gem install mysql -- --with-mysql-include=/usr/include/mysql\ --with-mysql-lib=/usr/lib/mysql --with-mysql-config
Update to latest version of Rails.
sudo gem install mongrel
change directory to the root directory of website then:
mongrel_rails start -p 4000
FTP the contents of the Ruby on Rails directory to the root of the public http directory on the server.
Configuration of Rails
If you already have a database for your Ruby on rails application dump it then use phpmyadmin to create a database then upload the dumped database.
Then update the config/database.yml file onthe sever for user, passwords, socket and database name.
Apache http configuration
I use Direct Admin on my server so it is easy to change the apache configuration.
You may have to change httpd.conf to include the proxy module first take the # from these lines:
#LoadModule proxy_module modules/libproxy.so
Then add the following lines to the http config file:
ProxyPass / http://www.itsdargens.com:4000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://www.itsdargens.com:4000/
Backslash very important!

Went to Pizza on Rails last night. Very good met loads of interesting people working on loads of interesting project some of which weren't covered by NDAs so could be discussed. More motivated than ever now. see www.pizzaonrails.com.
Still have not got the look and feel as we want it. Trine has been pulling her hair out - we are aiming to launch a beta 15th Feb 2007 so we are running out of time. P2P F2F file sharing is complex enough without a poor website.
