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 or Time.parse?

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

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

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
