Error Freezing Rails: /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1297: command not found: unzip

I was trying to install and work with Simple Ticket, a rails customer support ticket system, which required a really old version of rails. The goal was to have an easy ticketing system as a temporary solution until a permanent system could be put in place later. So one of the requirements for installing Simple Ticket was to freeze rails at version 1.1.6.

So during the attempt to freeze rails at version 1.1.6 I received the below error.



  1. rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_1-1-6

Tmobile Google G1 Android Cell Phone Won’t Turn on

My wife has a Google G1 phone from T-Mobile and she couldn’t get it to turn on the other day. It was stuck at a screen with the Android logo on the front and pressing any buttons would not resolve the issue. I decided to remove the battery from the G1 cell phone to make sure it completely rebooted.

Removing the battery was a task in itself. There are a bunch of videos to explain how to do this but even with the video it was hard to remove the case that covers the battery.
