I want to run a Ruby script outside of Rails and still use Active
Record. This is what I'm trying but I am getting a "const_missing"
error - do I need to reference the connection in the printlisting
method?:

require 'rubygems'
require 'active_record'

class TheMode < ActiveRecord::Base
  def initialize
  end

def printlisting
  ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(:adapter => "mysql", :host =>
"localhost", :username => "root", :password => "root", :database =>
"commentstable")
  listing = Comment.find(:all)
  puts listing.text
end

temp = TheMode.new
temp.modemaker
