Validating that a user-agreement checkbox has been checked

Hi,

I have a checkbox that a user must check before they register on my
site. It is to accept the terms of use. My question is, what
validation code do I need to add to my user model so that the record
can’t be saved until the box is checked?

Thanks, - Dave

Feel free to add me to MSN and/or GTalk as this email.

It’s an IRC server, get an IRC client like mirc http://mirc.com and then
type /server irc.freenode.net -j #rubyonrails into the bar at the bottom
after entering all your details.

Rick, Thanks. That was it.

Ryan, Yeah, I’ve probably overstayed my welcome somewhat. This is
such a great group but I should branch out. Is “irc.freenode.net
#rubyonrails” a newsgroup? I tried visiting the URL and
irc.freenode.net” but got a server not found error. Incidentally I
visit this through Google G…
