Subject Re: CF Comparator type and get_slice

What are the column names you are getting back and the the byte values you are using in the
start and from. 

My guess is it's a serialization thing, try using an IntegerType in cassandra and have your
client serialise the ticks long for you. If that works then work back to see whats going on.

But, later, when I use get_slice with something like:

to an existing column name. I'm getting some really weird results, from dates that are even
outside the range supplied. Any hint about this?
