So I woke up this morning thinking I might get a lot done. I’m here now attesting to the fact that this isn’t true.
The list of things I’ve managed to start but not finish includes but is not limited to: A website, a can of pop, a bottle of water, getting dressed, a paper, lunch, and probably some other various things, but if I mentioned them then I would finish this list, and that would ruin my pattern for the day.
I noticed something today as well. I’m not paying ANY attention to my file system. Not in the sense you might think. I’m not like most people who don’t realize they only have 100 megs left of disk space, when it comes to free space, I know exactly where I’m at, and it’s always PLENTY (generally in the area of 700-800 gigs). What I ment by the fact that I’m not paying attention to my file system is that I don’t know where I’m keeping files.
Take for example this website.
I keep 3 versions of it (not counting backup disks).Â One is the live version which you see on a day to day basis.Â TheÂ one I do most of my work onÂ these days is the one on my jump drive, and then there is the one that I use when I’m working from home. As you can imagine the only one that matters really is the one that is live.
But what I’m finding is I’m doingÂ double the work a lot of the time. TakeÂ for example the graph below. OnÂ the 10th of last week, I put some finishingÂ touchesÂ on the graph here at home. It worked perfectly as many of youÂ can attest to. That’s all fine and dandy. Tuesday roled around and I realized there was a ratherÂ largeÂ security hole in my entire site. So I fixed that. But wait, I forgot to download the file with the perfectly working graph stuff, and yes, I did update the graph with this security update.
So as you can imagine, the security was right, but now the graph wasn’t working the way it should. Of course, then I had to either a) rewrite the code, or b) find my home copy, and make theÂ security changes again to the file that was right. ERG. What I need is an FTP program that syncs me up with the live site theÂ moment I connect.
Think of itÂ as CVS forÂ people who forget to CVS UPDATE. Maybe I shouldÂ just make this site a respository and say screwÂ it to trying to keep 2 file systems clean.
WHY AM I NOT DOING HOMEWORK?
Ok that’s it.Â Time for me to go. Fair winds all, I needÂ a shower.
