Layouts in Rails Complete

I finished a bit of a milestone today with my [wife’s website](http://redbeedesigns.com). It’s now completely in the Rails framework of code! Each of the pages looks the same as it did a week or so ago, but now they use a common template and the HTML is built at the time of the request. Take a look at the bottom of the page–a simple Ruby “Time.now” command returns the time the page was rendered.

It’s not earth-shattering since things like this have existed for years. It just means that I made something hard look the same as something easy and sometimes, that’s the hardest thing of all.
