Response to: ActiveRecord error?

Found out the issue, according to the Wiki on MySQL access problems, MySql version 4.1.x introduced a new password hashing mechanism that is incompatible with the previously used scheme. The quick work around was to create a new user w/o a password that only has access to the cookbook db. The other proposed solution is to install the mysql gem, which I quickly tried, but it looks like it uses *nix make files, etc...

Thanks for the help, I really like the article and am looking forward to the second installment.
