Heroku Developer,

We've identified you as a user of Memcache, the Couchbase Memcached add-on. This is a final reminder that this add-on is shutting down on Oct 31st. The following apps you own are affected:


The loss of Memcache on your app(s) could cause your app to crash, or hinder performance. You must take action to migrate as soon as possible.

Migrating to MemCachier
We recommend MemCachier, an alternative provider in the Marketplace that offers a similar service . The team there are on hand to help you with your migration and have provided documentation here which will help you move your cache.

Getting help with your migration
The teams at Heroku, CouchBase, and MemCachier are here to help you. Please contact support if you run into any problems after migration.

Thank you,
Robbie & the Heroku Add-ons Team

Wait, it crashed. looking...

It appears heroku not to have understood the ruby version specified in the Gemfile and loaded a 1.9.2 environment, but ruby knew the Gemfile specified 1.9.3, hence the crash. Fix in 89a7ac4

(Particularly annoying, since the app doesn't really use caching right now, in the first place).
