PayR/Rails snapshots now really on RubyForge

If you've bought the book or are reading it online, you may have noticed we mentioned PayR is on RubyForge.

Turns out, when I had thought I released the Rails version, something went wrong, and all that was up on the page was the old camping version. Thanks to a bug report from Brian Stuart, this is now fixed, and you can download PayR 0.1.0, which is the Rails 2 app.

Sorry about that, and hope you enjoy the book!
