After seeing you struggle with this, I suggest you use the built-in
Rails logging facility instead of p, puts, and print.  In any of your
actions you just do:


And it shows up in the development.log or production.log.

The mongrel.log is really only for major catastrophe and reporting bugs
to me.

Otherwise, yes they'll be reasonably maintained but no promises.
