CSS bootstrap file not loading, navbar not working "Laying Out the Page" Lecture

I'm on "Laying out the Page" lecture on Front-End Development section of Starting Ruby on Rails Course. I have installed Ruby 1.9.3 version, and I unzipped bootstrap version 3 onto my file and moved the required files per the instructions from the last lectures and have a working app running on localhost:3000 (I'm on a windows 7 machine and using command prompt btw). However bootstrap.css and other associated css files do not seem to work or load.

I get the following errors when I run the app server and load the ../statuses directory on the browser.

rails s: ... Started GET "/assets/application.css?body=1" for at 2013-10-10 19:03:4 8 -0700 Served asset /application.css - 304 Not Modified (0ms)

Started GET "/assets/bootstrap.css?body=1" for at 2013-10-10 19:03:48 -0700 Served asset /bootstrap.css - 304 Not Modified (1ms)

I also get the 304 errors for the scaffolds and status css

I tried to fix this using a suggestion from stackoverflow where you insert the line gem='thin' in the gemfile and then run bundle command to create associated files.

Still, the css does not seem to work or be loaded when I tried to work with the page again.

Please help, thank you!
