Hi, me again with another silly question. If flash.now only lasts for the request on which it was set, what makes it different than a plain old instance variable? Wouldn't, def action @message = "message" end <%= @message %> produce the same results as, def action flash.now["message"] = "message" end <%= flash["message"] %> ?

the assumption is that the flash is in your layout and flash.now will behave the same

Ah, of course.
