[typo] Ecto not working for me - can't post, need help

Ok, I finally fixed this, and it *may* point out a bug, or what I'd
really say, a need for an additional safeguard. The problem I'd had,
as seen below, is that my migrate hadn't gone well, and I was left
with various articles having null guid values. Scott suggested
iterating them and re-saving as seen below. But, that didn't work.
However, I only needed to slightly modify that. Looking at the code
pointed out how to do this :) So, I simply did this:
Article.find(:all).each do |a|
a.guid = UUID.random_create.to_s
What I saw in the code was that the guid is generated only when the
entry is created (via :before_create). So, it seems like it might be
useful to have a similar check as above, for saving/update, to ensure
the guid isn't empty. Theoretically that shouldn't happen, but might
not be a bad safeguard.
