Thanks for the reply-- I'll look into Bj, although I was hoping to avoid
going down that path. If you could, could you elaborate on why forking
is a bad idea? From what I've read, active record db connections seemed
to be the culprit. It seems odd to me that my app works fine if I don't
front it with nginx, or if I use an alternative reverse proxy (pen.)
