hello,

I'm new to RonR. I tried installing rails using the --http-proxy option.

I typed this on the command line:
`gem install rails --http-proxy username:passowrd@proxy-address`

It retturned an error,

 ERROR: While executing gem ... (NoMethodError0
     undefined method `proxy_open' for #<URI::Generic:0x2f45270>

What did I miss?
