that's because your TT config probably isn't getting set in the master config 
for your app, which is what c.config returns.

Every M/V/C in Catalyst has a config() method (iirc -- please correct me, oh 
gurus), and the master MyApp class has a config() too, which is where you 
generally set values for the entire application.

You can set your TT config there too. But looking at what you're trying to do, I 
wonder if what you really want is a TT type config file, which can set constants 
and other relevant TT stuff. CatRose has an example of how I do it:
