    Hi Everyone, Apologies for any confusion. The Rails study group was rescheduled for this Wednesday, August 6th. Here is the link to rsvp.

    I received an email yesterday (Wednesday) telling me that I was admitted into the group, but there was no address for the meeting place. I really wanted to go. Was this a mistake or am I missing something? P.S. The RSVP button was green and it said YES, which I took to mean that I needed to take no further action in order to receive the location.

    Trying to get caught up before the meetup on Wednesday, but I'm stuck on Chapter 3.2.1.

    I'm trying to generate the intergration test but it fails:

    $ rails generate intergration_test static_pages
    Could not find generator intergration_test.

    I installed the rspec gem and updating my Gemfile but no go.

    My Gemfile contails the followin:

    group :development, :test do
    gem 'sqlite3', '1.3.8'
    gem 'rspec-rails', '>= 2.0.0.beta'

    I then ran bundle update and bundle install but I still get the same error. Any help is appreciated.
