faster_require Jump to Story

I/O in Windows is slow, but that doesn't stop people from trying to use it for software development, where operations like compiling and testing need to touch virtually every file in the project. faster_require is a gem by Roger Pack that helps mitigate this problem by speeding up the 'require' operatin in Ruby. In the podcast we mention Faisal Jawdat for writing in about the gem, but neglected to mention Roger as the author. Thanks to both of you!
