Richard, dollars_and_cents is a RoR extension that
allows one to store everything in the db as cents
(integer) and then automatically convert back to
dollars in the application itself.

the column name has to be [name]_in_cents.  i chose
price_in_cents.  the extension automatically makes
[name] available to the app, in my case price, and
formats it in monetary notation.

all i needed to do was restart my server to get it to
take effect.  i finally have it running right now.
