Activerecord automatically stores the time for created_at and updated_at as UTC, and this is what it looks like: 2008-07-21 18:55:29 UTC

How can I get the Time.now to look like that?

I'm trying to find the difference of the Time.now and created_at so I can get a number of days, hours, or seconds depending on the magnitude of the difference, since my object was created.


Hi -

If I am understanding correctly you can use the Time#strftime directives.
