-FubuMVC ReadMe
+Why does `git status` show that all of my files are modified?
+FubuMVC is built by Windows users, so all of the text files have CRLF line endings. These line endings are stored as-is in git (which means we all have autocrlf turned off).
+If you have autocrlf enabled, when you retrieve files from git, it will modify all of your files. Your best bet is to turn off autocrlf, and re-create your clone of FubuMVC.
+1. Delete your local clone of the FubuMVC repository
+1. Type: `git config --global core.autocrlf false`
+1. Type: `git config --system core.autocrlf false`
+1. Clone the FubuMVC repository again

1. open src\FubuMVC.sln with Visual Studio and Build the solution
