Subject Re: Querying by date range when using TimeUUIDType ColumnFamily?
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 19:50:37 GMT
You're going to have to build TimeUUIDs based on the date range you are
scanning.  Problem is most UUID libraries build version 1 UUIDs based on the
current time.  I was able to get this working in Python by changing the
library to allow me to pass in a time.  This isn't safe for creating unique
UUIDs but works fine for doing slices.
