One bit I'm not sure of: > # Altered query for @minersWithSqA > <%= miner.square_area %> Is this ever true? Doing that query doesn't stop me from calling miner.gold_claim.square_area. He also makes the claim that Rails can't not do lazy loading, which seems to ignore the :include option to AR::Base#find. Then again, it does have a publication date of over a year ago, so I guess it may have been true then. It would be *really* nice to know which versions he was comparing.
