I wouldn't recommend using spec server - use spork instead:
Both load the rails environment, so that each time you run your tests
(with script/spec -X or script/spec --drb) you won't have to wait for it
to load up (which can take 4-5 seconds).
autospec/autotest, on the other hand, polls the filesystem every 3
seconds or so for changes. When it sees one, it reruns just the test or
spec file which has changed.
