I have created this sippet because I VPN into work to check problems or e-mail and had to change my IE settings to surf the internet. With this sippet, once configured will allow you to override your internet explorer proxy settings to connect and browse the internet with one double click of the mouse or as I have done, add it to my VPN profile auto starter and it reconfigures my internet browser after i'm connected.
(this will shut the browser if it's running, make the changes and launch it with the changed configuration)
From time to time you may have reasons to override the default find method that ActiveRecord provides. In this example, we'll store a side-copy of the record attributes so that we have some basis for discovering changes to the data.
note: this will not override dynamic finders such as find_by_id
