I have a rails app with a data model called 'jobs' and I'm faced with a critical design choice crossroads.
I don't know enough about Rails and its inner workings to be able to say for sure what I should do despite a complete read of the rails and ruby docs.
I want to be able to accurately display the age of a job record in days. So when a customer logs in, they can see that the job they submitted is 'x' days old.
Where does a rails app on Heroku get its time stamps? From Heroku? Or the customers system clock?
If a customer has a out of date system clock and submits a job, it could really mess up the sorting of their job list, not to mention me the overseer of job records.
Any advice out there?
EDIT: Just to be clear, i'm not asking how to list jobs by their date, but to which clock does a rails app on Heroku base it's records.
