You were absolutely right, as was the book.
Everyone: If you’re following this thread or reading “Agile Web

I’ve built my applications at /home/slitt/tcrails/appname, and my
is contained in /home/slitt/tmp, so be aware. I guess my app is running
user slitt or something like that.
For my own personal understanding, I’d like to be able to manipulate the

produced the “dreaded blank screen”, necessitating deletion of the file.
anyone know the binary structure of these files? I clearly see my f1 and
keys in there, but cannot find a way to manipulate their values.
Anyone have an idea for a good binary editor to use on these things?
again, I’m doing this for the sake of understanding – I’m not a mad
scientist about to include self-modifying code in his Rails app
