ActiveRecord column "type"

Hi There...

I'm in a bit of a pickle. The thing is that I'm writing an
administrative rails application to handle the mysql data for a
application(PowerDNS to be exact.) However. The problem is that I 2
tables in there have the column "type" wich of course is a magic
column for single table inheritance.
I can set in my model the line
self.inheritance_column = "nothing"
and the script runs. However then of course I start getting ModelName
reportend when I try using model.type to get to the type column in the
data. Either I have to change the behaviour of .type or map .r_type to
the "type" column. I'm unsure which is the best way to go and how to
do it.

Found it out. type method is deprecated so it should be safe to remove.

in environments.rb
class Object
  undef_method :type
end

in modelname.rb
class Modelname < ActiveRecord::base
  set_inheritance_column "nothing"
end
