Ruby Time DST
View gist:4974312
std = Time.local(2013, 11, 3, 01, 00, 00)
# => 2013-11-03 01:00:00 -0800
dst = std - 3600
# => 2013-11-03 01:00:00 -0700
## Challenge:
# Is it possible to instantiate a time in the last hour of DST (01:00 - 01:59)
# without first having to create a nearby time to subtract from?

Stupid ruby tricks for ActiveRecord query syntax. For amusement only.
View backtick_attribute_syntax.rb
module BacktickAttributeSyntax

# WARNING: this is a dangerous hack. Don't use it. It'll bite you if you ever
# accidentally call backticks outside of a model.
# Override backtick syntax to return an Arel attribute for use with
# predications like `.gteq` in the model. To use the original shell
# behaviour, (which should be very uncommon in ActiveRecord models), you can
View foo.rb
class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
serialize :check_in, TimeOfDayAttribute # dump/load for valid, empty, nil values tested independently
# Setter will handle both String & TimeOfDay input
# I want to test the getter before defining (and depending on) this method
