I realize that it has been 2 months since the series of posts I made about setting up a FreeBSD server to host your Rails applications, but I actually only noticed last week that I forgot to add the reference links to the other blogs I used when compiling the how-to when I reformatted the giant wall of text into smaller sections.
The past few posts have been a "I use this, but I extended its default functionality with this:" posts... Well this one is no different. I have slowly become fed up with Safari. Every update seems to make it run slower. I've noticed as the day wears on, it can take up to 30 seconds to load a new tab. WTF is that shit.
I've been using project.vim for a while, but theres one thing that really annoys me about it: It doesn't automatically add directories. So in a Rails application, it sucks.
I'm not sure how I skipped over this one, but I just found Rails.vim, a script for Rails specific highlighting, MVC file navigation and rails scripts evocation. I've always favored VIM over... anything, and when I started the latest project, a Rails app, I decided to try out TextMate.
If you have been following my previous posts, you know that I'm configuring my first private production server. Servers tend to be headless, and I can't see much benefit in dualbooting a server... so I always want to see about bypassing the options that are available for such a configuration.

I'm pretty sure this is going to turn into a long story short, turned long. Though thats mostly intentional this time.
