+Running a local copy
+--------------------
+
+You need MongoDB (www.mongodb.org). On Mac OSX, I had to unzip the tarball and do the following:
+
+ $ cd mongodb-osx-x86_64-1.8.0
+ $ sudo mkdir /data && sudo mkdir /data/db
+ $ sudo bin/mongod
+
+Then do the same as above:
+
+ $ git clone https://github.com/hotsh/rstat.us.git (or your own fork, if applicable)
+ $ cd rstat.us

+But instead of using heroku, run it with sinatra:
+
+ $ gem install bundler && bundle install
+ $ rackup
