comment Finding mongoDB records in batches (using mongoid ruby adapter)
@Edmund "Hit" probably isn't the best word to use here, because it implies re-running the query each time. It's a database cursor. Think of it more like streaming the data across in batches of 100.

comment How to validate that an array is not empty in Mongoid?
@BSeven Why? Because blank?, present?, and presence methods are available on every single object in a Rails environment. It's been this way for ~10 years and a definition for the word "present" is "existing" (aka non-blank or non-empty).

@BSeven Also, arguably, presence is a perfect name. Consider Array#present? in ActiveSupport.

@BSeven You can always write your own validator that replicates presence (or inherits from it) and give it your own custom validator name. Custom Validators are explained and covered well in the the Rails Guides. Pay specific attention to the ActiveModel::EachValidator option.
