Helps undefined method `fields' for nil

We keep getting this error across multiple projects & machines, with different versions of the pg gem and the PostgreSQL server, with varying consistency. Switching the tests to sqlite seems to fix it.

It appears that PG::Connection#async_exec is returning nil for some queries.

Installing Rails development stack on OS X Lion

I recently started working with OS X Lion at home and started researching the best way to get a Ruby on Rails environment up and running quickly.

After a little searching, I found a really well written article by Frederico Araujo over at http://www.frederico-araujo.com/2011/07/30/installing-rails-on-os-x-lion-with-homebrew-rvm-and-mysql/.

Fred's blog post walks you through step by step getting Homebrew, RVM, Ruby 1.9.2 and MySQL up and running.

It worked perfectly.

Thanks Fred!
