It's hard to know that progress is still happening and that the app has not simply frozen while ruby 1.9.3 is downloading. We would expect the progress bar to keep moving in some way, but it is not.
Yeah this is one of the most frustrating things for me. I've fiddled with that silly thing endlessly but I can't figure out why it pauses the animation. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
Absolutely. I'm getting started by trying to use Railcar while taking lots of time to understand how it works and what exactly it's doing. I'll let you know if I find anything. My first hunch is that it's a threading thing. I know that downloading (IO in general) can block if not done in a separate thread. But that's my limited understanding of it.
Yeah I tossed it its own thread, but I'm not sure why it's not working. Investigating!
