I am currently experimenting with Cassandra 1.0.7, but while reading http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/schema-in-cassandra-1-1  something caught my eye:
"Cassandra orders version 1 UUIDs by their time component"
Is this true?
If I have for example USER_CF where key is randomly generated java.util.UUID (UUID.randomUUID()), will the rows be sorted by the generation time?
I use random partitioner if that makes any difference.
