Well luckily it's only me.... I'm thinking I might just delete all
remote repositories and start over.... I upgraded a project from
RAils 1.2.6 to 2.3.2 so you can imagine all the fun that I had to
do.... luckily this project dies here, and we re-write it to finish
the 2.3.2 upgrade cuz it was my first ever rails project and a monkey
could write better code :)
Thanks for your help guys.
