Git Yerself Sum Fun

Man, is Git confusing to a newbie. So far, I have had the opportunity to redo my blog posts a couple times and I’ve lost some of the work I’d put into some test scripts I was writing. Get things typed up, save it, do what I think is right, and then end up with something in a branch of a fork of something else and just completely hosed. I just then delete all that mess and start over with a new clone.

I hope I’m not the only one to do this. I’m a newbie, so I have to screw up sometimes…better the blog than something really important. I did find that in VS Code, I can watch the output from my clicks, so now I know more about what I’m doing when I click the menus. It also explains some of the changes I lost when I rebuilt my computer the other day. I hadn’t pushed what I thought I’d pushed. Ooops.

Such is my Easter evening. Three kids watching a Barbie show, wife watching something upstairs on her tablet, and me farting around on the laptop, getting ready to do a little Sunday night work. Oh, the life of a 40-year-old geeky dad.
