ActiveRecord 3+ auto-converts times to UTC by default. Hilarity ensues.

Remember how Rails 2 came with an awesome feature that broke all code using Time.now or Time.parse?

This behavior is now the default for Rails 3. Disable it by adding the following to your config/application.rb:

Copy
config.active_record.default_timezone = :local config.active_record.time_zone_aware_attributes = false
