Latest rubygems on Ubuntu

At NDTV, we tend to stick to LTS releases of Ubuntu in our servers. Due to the update restrictions, we usually end up building rubygems from source as the default package is outdated. I don’t like this solution as it messes up package dependencies. Turns out there is a PPA for rubygems that seems to be more frequently updated.
