|+# getnode - install Node.JS from source, no thinking required!|
|+When you're not used to it, the idea of compiling something from source can be|
|+scary. It's not very difficult once you're used to it, but that distribution's|
|+package manager... it just seems so much easier... and it's not that bad to be a|
|+few versions behind, is it?|
|+Well, with Node.JS, being a few versions behind isn't a great idea. You're|
|+missing out on important improvements and bug fixes to a fairly young,|
|+## Stop waiting for the package manager to update - getnode!|
|+ git clone https://github.com/AvianFlu/getnode|
|+ cd getnode|
|+ ./getnode 0.6.10|
|+The version of node specified will be downloaded, decompressed, compiled, and|
|+installed while you wait.|
|+### I got an error after compiling!|
|+Node tries to put itself in `/usr/local/bin` by default. Because `getnode`|
|+includes a call to `curl`, it does not attempt to run itself as root. Try `sudo make|
|+install` after `getnode` exits.|
