Why wont my gem install when creating a new Ruby on Rails app?

When I run rails new, it’s starts to create the files needed to make the app and then it brings up an error saying that the Rake gem wasn’t able to be pulled from the Rubygem site.

Anybody know what the problem could be?

Here’s what returned in my command line:

$ rails new Connections

An error occurred while installing rake (10.4.2), and Bundler cannot continue.

Make sure that gem install rake -v '10.4.2' succeeds before bundling.

Googling for Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError: SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed windows brings up a number of hits. One of those may be useful.

I don't use Windows so I cannot help personally.
