Can someone tell me how to store the current date/time when someone
posts a comment on my blog?  I could even update the comments table
after the comment is saved in the controller, but I'm not sure how to do
that either.

Thanks for any help...

Create a field called created_at and/or updated_at and Rails will do
it all automatically.  Make sure it's a datetime (that's in postgres,
not sure what the mysql equivalent is).

You can also just make a datetime field called whatever you want, and
do something like:
comment.posted_at =

and save it yourself..but it's easier/more railsy to just use the
"magic" fields created_at/updated_at.
