Time Machine Misery

Steven Frank:

Backup is not something I can afford to screw around with. If there’s any possible point of failure, it’s unacceptable. So, I decided to drop this “unsupported” configuration and picked up a 1 TB Time Capsule. The situation has not improved.

The Thing About Git

Ryan Tomayko:

The thing about Git is that it’s oddly liberal with how and when you use it. Version control systems have traditionally required a lot of up-front planning followed by constant interaction to get changes to the right place at the right time and in the right order. And whoa unto thee if a rule is broken somewhere along the way, or you change your mind about something, or you just want to fix this one thing real quick before having to commit all the other crap in your working copy.…Git is quite different in this regard.

I like git add --patch and git commit --amend.


John Gruber:

Borrowing ideas is fair game, but copying an entire app is wrong. And it’s creepy, in a Microsoft-of-the-’90s way, when it’s a $150 billion company cloning an app from a 10-person company.

Google App Engine looks interesting, though.
