Ian is looking for people will experience using the "Koloa Gem". JT recommended to use the standard facebook widgets instead.
In SQL, how do you make a query the opposite of:
where(:name => nil) without using a magic SQL string.
In SQL null is neither true or false. Be careful for searching for something when a column can have 3 states: true, false and nil. Because falsey comparisons will not work as expected. (RVA, NM)

A developer had some
.DS_Store files accidentally checked into a project. It was added to the
git rm'd out of the project but they seem to keep showing up as untracked files. Any ideas?

Todd P asks,
How do you properly render a string containing UTF-8 characters across all views?
This is with a MySQL database. When you're displaying UTF-8 data, the error you get is:
"incompatible character encodings: ASCII-8 BIT and UTF-8"
I added the following to config/environment.rb:
Encoding.default_external = Encoding::UTF_8 Encoding.default_internal = Encoding::UTF_8
And switched from the mysql gem to mysql2 (0.2.7). Also, make sure to update the adapter in config/database.yml.
