mbryneok no probs, thanks
Nikordican anyone tell me the benefits of using Rails over Django?
gma_is it just me, or does the rename_column migration ignore whether or not the column was null?
another way of putting that would be "it does"

pythonichow do i get full path of $0?
gma___FILE__
pythonicokay, thanks :-)
gma_np
I've got round the failings of rename_column with change_column. bit of a gotcha, that...
neongrau3anyone using acts_as_ferret to indexstuff like word and powerpoint files?
Nikordiso there none?
neongrau3Nikordi: i doubt many here have ever tried django (me neither)
Nikordioh ok, no prob.
gma_I tried django

for me (I'm an expert in neither, but have done one app in each) the benefits of rails are:
bEe_hi
gma_1. the agile web dev book, and the size of the community
bEe_please help me: how can i set http headers in RoR?
gma_2. the database layer; active record does more than django's
though I believe that django is moving to support sqlalchemy, which is supposed to be very capable
never used it though
lisabEe_: headers['key'] = value
bEe_lisa, in controller?
thanks a lot
lisabEe_: yea
