A rails question: has anyone gotten fastCGI working with rails yet? When I switch my .htaccess over, I get what appear to be timeout errors. It works fine under normal CGI operation, but it's slow.
Also, I have been poking around for a solution to developing rails applications remotely, and I stumbled on the tramp project for emacs:
It allows you to edit files over ssh. It has worked pretty well for me so far on both windows (using Putty) and OSX. Any other hints or suggestions for easing development are welcome.
