@rafalchmiel

For lines 12 to 18 you could write something like session[:username].nil? ? false : true instead, right? Also, no need for all the returns.

@Femaref

@rafalchmiel: You could just use !!session[:username]. nil evaluates to false, so by negating it twice you force it to a bool. If there is a username in there, you will force the value to true.

If you want to use your code, !session[:username].nil? would do the job as well.
