Not sure what to say here. I work in IT, and like breaking servers so I can fix them and make them less breakable.

comment Can't install gems from behind proxy
I set the environment variables in /etc/bash.bashrc, so I thought that would do the trick. It didn't. Adding -E did, however. Many, many thanks.

comment How can I programmaticatly check if a source is in sources.list?
I don't mind using grep. I am relatively new to being an admin on an Ubuntu box (much more used to how Slackware does things) and I wanted to make sure there wasn't something within the apt/dpkg suite of tools that would be better suited. The "apt-cache search" may work for one repo, but I don't think it will for the other one.
