I am storying a column called start time and endtime, both having
mysql type "time".
I am using formtastic to create the forms like
<%= f.input :time_start, :label => "Between", :as
=> :time, :ignore_date => true %>
The time gets stored just fine (though in 24 hour format, which is
another headache), but when I extract this time to compare it to
Time.now, to figure out, if "now" is between end and start time, the
time returned is something like Sat Jan 01 15:00:00 UTC 2000, which is
nowhere in 2010.
Why is this happening? Whats the best way to store start and end time
to compare later on with "now".
