2012 Horror Conventions

If you've ever been a fan of genres like Horror and Sci-Fi, you might want to check out some Horror Conventions. There are nearly two dozen listed on my Squidoo lens, which I linked to, and I think it would be awesome to get go to even more of them! <3

Certificate verify failed on Ruby 1.9 Ubuntu Solution

I hope you find this, it will save you hours of googling.

Are you getting a certificate verify failed error in Ruby 1.9? I had this problem while trying to use Amazon's MTurk / Mechanical Turk api for AWS. It could honestly be ANYTHING that tries to connect to another website that might have this error come up. Have you found a billion websites that suggest doing something like turning off SSL verification. Well, that would work. Or you could fix this damn problem.

COMMAND PROMPT: export SSL_CERT_DIR=/etc/ssl/certs

If this helped you at all, you owe me a link back to my blog. Wasted a ton of time finding this. XD

Things not to waste time with (that might work):
  • http.ca_file = "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificate.crt"
