Versions matter

I get a little crazy about having the latest version of the software i like.

Today i wasted about four hours of work because of that.

I was installing ruby on a VPS following the steps from this article and i got stuck at installing the passenger nginx module. It was generating all kinds of errors. I found all the solutions on stackoverflow but none of them seem to actually fix the whole problem.

After taking a two hour break and approaching the problem again I had a crazy idea: “Let’s try ruby 1.9.3!”

Yep! … that did it.

I always fucking forget this!

So today I hope i finally learned that versions are important, and some of them are early versions and things just break, and that I should use stable versions in production.
