Is there away to have parts of a migration file only work with a
specific database.  For example I am inserting some data into a table

    execute "INSERT INTO demo_lists(position, name, updated_at,
created_at)  VALUES (1, 1, 'scott', CURDATE(), CURDATE());"

Of course the curdate() function may only be available on mysql.  So can
we some how determine which database type Migrations is working on?  I
would assume there's away since my Migrations class extends

thanks, scott.

Embrace the object relational goodness.

DemoList.create( :position => 1, :name => 'scott' )

created_at and updated_at are magically, and are set automatically.
