OK, now you can install gems from one of the gem mirrors; just use:

===================
gem install --source http://gems.rubyforge.vm.bytemark.co.uk some_gem
===================

I've posted this on my "rubyforge down" blog entry as well.

Thanks to Bytemark for continuing to host this mirror!

Yours,

Tom
