So, one gem install and two lines of code later I was happily inserting documents into a MongoDB server on my puny AWS Micro instance somewhere in Oregon. It worked just fine for all of three weeks.
It is to MongoDB’s credit if they convinced people that all you need to run MongoDB is to install it, install a Ruby library, and start inserting data without ever needing to look at the documentation.
