One minor annoyance that I’ve noticed since I started using typo is that the times are out by about 8 hours. For instance, this post probably says “created 8 hours ago”, even though I created it only a few minutes ago. Looking at the previous post in the database, which has never been edited:
created_at | 2006-01-24 00:29:00 updated_at | 2006-01-24 08:52:04
The updated_at field is correct.
Update: It turns out that HowtoSetDefaultTimeZone has the answer. Put this into
ActiveRecord::Base.default_timezone = :utc
