Lazy Programming: Lowercase URLs

Just so everyone knows, when it comes to programming I prefer to be as lazy as possible. This means that when I got my most recent story to render all routes in lowercase I decided fixing the Routing manually was way too much work. I spent some time on Google and discovered that the built-in lowercase functionality that is built into MVC 4 is broken and its a pain to work around. Instead I am adding a nuget package called LowercaseRoutesMVC to the project. It automatically renders routes in lowercase.  Unfortunately my coworker spent a couple hours yesterday working on updating his code to work manually.

Update: Quote from my boss to the coworker who did it manually yesterday, “hard work sometimes pays off tomorrow but procrastination always pays off immediately.”
