And The Asset Pipeline Is So Enticing!

UPDATE: I fixed it! I had a directory assets/ with some non-site-related assets in it--layered image files, etc.--and had therefore put "assets" in my .slugignore. Apparently, Heroku was applying this to app/assets/ as well.

I'm having a bear of a time upgrading this site[1] from rails 3.0 to 3.2. The bulk of the engine work was done upstream (thanks upstream, upstream rules) but I can't get application.css to compile on Heroku. It's working locally, but on production no matter what I do, I get exceptions on pageload:

A ActionView::Template::Error occurred in posts#index:
 application.css isn't precompiled

Wanker News!

p. I made "a juvenile website":http://wankernews.com!

p. So, maybe it requires some backstory? The fella behind "pinboard":http://pinboard.in/ "proposed":https://twitter.com/#!/Pinboard/status/155334419098517504 replacing instances of "the cloud" with "the moon", and further "proposed":https://twitter.com/#!/Pinboard/status/164847769285169152 replacing "hack" with "wank." Hilarious!

p. Well, over lunch with a few co-workers, we discussed how much "Hacker News":http://news.ycombinator.com might be improved with these replacements. So after work I dropped by a "wankathon":http://calagator.org/events/1250461751, threw together a rails app that proxies news.ycombinator.com with some regex replacements, and sent it off "to the moon":http://heroku.com.

p. Since then I've been laughing pretty much non-stop. Come wank the auto industry! Who are we to assign connotations to "wanker"? ahahaha
