Cleanly install RMagick on OSX Leopard

Tags: 

Apple's latest Mac OSX release, 10.5, dubbed "Leopard", does a great job to remedy the problem Rails developers had with previous releases - Ruby is now installed and works correctly, with Rails and a whole bunch of other common gems installed too. Awesome stuff. The one thing they missed, however, was the graphics manipulation package RMagick, but thankfully OnRails.org has put together a tutorial for installing RMagick that covers everything needed to get it working.

Bug in Safari 3 beta: hidden file fields don't get submitted

Tags: 

I've just wasted several hours due to what turned out to be a bug in the current Safari 3 beta (on OSX Tiger). If you have a form with some DIVs set to display:none;, any file fields that are in the hidden DIVs do not get submitted along with the rest of the data, whereas text fields are submitted. This inconsistency does not exist in Firefox 2 - it submits all of the available fields. Bad Safari, bad!
