Ah, much better - I haven't tested Pimki on Windows in a while ;)
IIRC OSX 10.4 had Ruby build in, albeit an old version (1.8.2). You
can run "ruby -v" to check what version you have installed. If you
want an updated version you can get it from MacPorts ("sudo port
install rb-rubygems" gets you what you need). You can get detailed
instruction on http://hivelogic.com/articles/view/ruby-rails-mongrel-mysql-osx.
The rest of the steps are similar. Open a Terminal and type in the gem
commands (you should skip the first "gem update --system"; use sudo to
install the gems), download the zip file and run pimki. Instead of
double clicking, open a Terminal window, cd to the expanded pimki
directory and run "ruby pimki.rb".
Let me know if this helps.
