Welp, all of the various tutorials, lessons, exercises and whatnot have resulted in my Mac responding with a bit of a conniption fit. Granted, it is a bit elderly for strenuous activity, but the main problem seems to be versions, libraries, dependencies, et al. that are giving me constant errors when I try to install or run anything new. I don’t want to spend more days trying to resolve all the issues (should be getting a new Mac in a few months), so for now I’m going to be using exclusively for my Ruby and/or RoR studying. They’ve recently gone “Pro”, and most of the lag/refresh issues seem to be resolved. I’ll miss my fancy highlighting and shortcuts in the CLI, and everything in Sublime, but at least I’ll be able to get real work done.
