One way to make Rails consider the layout in an etag.
View etag.rb
# By default, changes to the layout temnplate won't cause a Rails etag
# to change. I suppose this is to facilitate Turbolinks. Sometimes you
# might want to change an etag in response to changes in the layout -
# this is particularly true when working in development mode. This is
# one way to do it, there are probably other (read: likely better) ways
# to do this too.
class FooController < ApplicationController
# There's probably some API method to get the name of the layout
# rather than hard-coding it like I did here, but I'm too lazy to
# look it up right now.

Optimal development-only Postgres settings for my Macbook Pro with 8GB RAM.

# Add settings for extensions here
# Some stupid, dangerous settings only used to speed things up on a local
# development machine, where if data is lost I'll just wipe and recreate.
# Never ever ever use these in production or anything approximating

According to my records your subscription will expire on 14 June 2014
LostCousins subscriptions are NOT renewed automatically unlike subscriptions for most other
genealogy sites - I prefer to depend on your generosity, not your forgetfulness.
The good news is that if you renew your subscription NOW it won't start until your existing
subscription expires - you'll get a full 12 months from the date shown above (so you don't have
to leave it until the last minute). Even better news is that the price hasn't changed since 2005 -
it's still just 10 pounds for a single subscription!

FriendlyId uses Rails's extending method to avoid overwriting your model's find method. Internally this is implemented similar to this:

def self.friendly

This however comes with a performance impact, because extending invokes Ruby's extend, which blows away MRI's method cache. To work around this, FriendlyId lets you include a :finders module which overrides your model's find to increase performance.
