Hello,

We are running Rails on www.montastic.com (free website monitoring
service w/ ajax and RSS feeds) and we are trying to fork a process
within a model e.g. and continue the query the  model stored data e.g.

in model server.rb...

Server.count
==> 1111

fork {
 Server.count
}

==> Boom. Mysql has gone away...

Is there a way to fork in a way to keep the database connection?

You'll need to establish a new connection in the forked process - that
will keep them separate.

Cheers,
