Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Re: Ruby Meetup

Good write-up, Ian. I'll attempt to address some of the points raised in a later blog posting. Regarding item.save, I have a longer rant prepared on whether or not to raise an exception in the case of Base#save, which will actually appear in the forthcoming book on Rails, but for now I'll leave you with the fact that if you do item.save! an exception will indeed be raised on error.
