TIL while working on this issue that if you dump a file into
public/index.html then rails will just serve that up for you.
A lot of tutorials out there talk about making a static pages controller, which seems like overkill (unless you have a lot of static pages .. but if thats the case why are you using Rails?)
If you made it this far, you should probably follow me on twitter. 🙂 Follow @levlaz
