be_false & be_true != be false & be true

Heads up,

false != be_false in rspec anymore.

I had to do some research to get my code to pass. (changed "be_false" to "be false")

I know Treehouse is updating this section, just a heads up so people don't get stuck like I did.

Mine still passed as it shows in the video, but it threw this error:

Deprecation Warnings:

`be_false` is deprecated. Use `be_falsey` (for Ruby's conditional semantics) or 
`be false` (for exact `== false` equality) instead. 
Called from 
/home/treehouse/projects/odot/spec/models/todo_item_spec.rb:11:in 
`block (3 levels) in <top (required)>'.

I ended up deciding to roll with "be_falsey" and "be_truthy" instead!

Wow....thank you guys, you saved my behind. I was about to pull my hair out, after staring at the code for hours!

Hate being mr. negative but spent so much time trying to get test to pass til I found this post. These being paid courses, I'd think they'd be updated. This particular course jumps around so much with very little explanation. Feels more like a typing class. Venting.

Agreed.

It is a bit tough to follow. I don't feel like I'm absorbing the concepts behind why everything is done the way it is. I don't learn much when I'm just chasing down files and typing.....
