Full text search with Rails and Postgres, across multiple tables, quickly

This is based on the method outlined by thoughtbot.

There is also a GitHub repository, with the app we build in the screencast.

By the way, I have no idea the plural of a database field index is “indexes” or “indices,” as you can tell in the screencast!
