Hi, I have a postgresql DB table which has "timeStamp" field, I wonder if it is a good way to store time with ruby-rails "Time.now" with a "timeStamp" field??? or will it better to store the "Time.now" into a "varchar" or "text"??? does anyone have an idea? Thanks you very much Sayoyo

I vote timestamp if you ever want to alter it. but varchar if it is read only

I use timestamp column type. Also, if you name your columns as created_on and updated_on you don't have to populate it, Rails will do it automatically for you.
