It probably doesn't help now, but just FYI the TextMate license is  
attached to you the user (not the machine).  Thus, you are allowed to  
use it on multiple machines.

Just open a .rb file and switch the language menu at the bottom of the  
window to Ruby on Rails.  TextMate needs the hint to know you want to  
use the Rails grammar, but after you tell it once it will remember.
