### LaTeX formatting - right alignment \ruggedleft

Here is a small thing, but I'd thought I'd post it since the small things can be big. Anyways, I was cleaning up my CV and the template I found and am using had my information at the top using this code.

\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
212 E. Emerald Ave \\
Knoxville, TN 37917-5531
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
Phone: (812) 531-9006 \\
Email: \href{mailto:timothy.andrew.barber@gmail.com}{timothy.andrew.barber@gmail.com} \\
Homepage: \href{http://timothyandrewbarber.blogspot.com/}{http://timothyandrewbarber.blogspot.com/}
\end{minipage}


Now the CV looked like this.

Now this is ok, but I decided I wanted it aligned to the right.  So I use the command \raggedleft to do this.  Found here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Paragraph_Formatting

The code now looks like this:

\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
212 E. Emerald Ave \\
Knoxville, TN 37917-5531
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
\raggeleft Phone: (812) 531-9006 \\
\href{mailto:timothy.andrew.barber@gmail.com}{timothy.andrew.barber@gmail.com} \\
\href{http://timothyandrewbarber.blogspot.com/}{http://timothyandrewbarber.blogspot.com/}
\end{minipage}

So I decided to remove the "Email:" and "Homepage:" as well.  Don't worry, my CV is a page on my blog and a few other sites so my info is out there anyways.
