    Any reason why this is throttled to 2K/sec ? At this rate the next
    version will be out before my download completes.

    Can it be published as a torrent?

  7. Ooh ooh, I know, let's put it on a binary newsgroup..

  8. Tried, works.

    However, having that in the message to start with would be somewhat
    more helpful.

  9. Unlike binary newsgroups bittorrent is quite well designed bandwidth
    multiplier ;-)

    I got that beat. I am right now compiling it thru Windows Vista onto a 1 Gig
    Flash drive, for the hell of it. I expect the next version to be out before my
    tar xfj completes! (-:

    (BTW I'm also actually using it, remotely on a Linux server, and it works fine
    so far...)

  12. Just wondering if there are Windows binaries yet. Is this compiled on
    Windows using MinGW or VC++ 6?

    I checked the FTP directories on ruby-lang:
    ...and all don't have it yet.

    Binaries built with VC6 usually can be found here:


    No news yet.

    Builds with MinGW are coming, still several things to iron on the
    build process for both 1.8.6 and 1.9.1, will do a proper announcement
    when crack that down.

    Ruby 1.9 currently does not support djgpp. We need help for threading
    support on djgpp.

  16. I must admit I've never downloaded from bittorrent at 2.5Mb/sec before.

    I'm trying to make one of my libraries run on this rc, and ran into this
    difference from 1.8:

    % touch afile
    % irb
    IOError: not opened for writing
    % irb1.9
    open('asdf', 'rb') { |f| f.flush }
    => #<File:asdf (closed)>

    Is this intentional? I was previously abusing this as a way to find out
    if an arbitrary io object was writeable. Perhaps theres a better way in

    Also if there's somewhere else one should turn to for 1.8 -> 1.9
    questions please let me know...

    Do you have more details about that package? build scripts used?

    Even I trust Ruby, I cannot trust too much in packages all written in
    japanesse and flashes command prompt windows while installing.
