Ruby on Rails Project

I'm still struggling with this. Can you guys think of any reason why my application wouldn't be updating?

Basically, I've downloaded the Twitter Bootstrap and put the files into the relevant asset folders but nothing changes when I refresh the page. I've also tried just amending bits of the mark up in the text files - say, changing "Listing Statuses" to "All Statuses" - but that also has zero effect on what shows up in my browser. Not even deleting the content of the scaffold.css file made any difference.

I'm so keen to do this Ruby on Rails project, but it's really not responding to me. Could it be that I'm saving it in the wrong part of my directory?

One thing I have noticed is that the existing CSS files and those I download from Twitter have different file types. Statuses and Scaffolds are SCSS files, whereas the Bootstrap is a CSS file.

Hey Andrew, What is showing up in your browser? Have you removed the public/index.html file?
