The past few weeks have been extremely busy at work. Deadlines. Deadlines. Deadlines. And this Friday there’s another one. Nice twist: my hard drive crashed yesterday morning, one day of work lost. Right now I’m using a temporary laptop (a Dell, very ugly looking with Ubuntu on it). These Apple guys are on to something with their Time Machine software. I backup about every week, most of my work is on either a git or subversion repository. That reduced the damages, but apparently you have to end every day with backing everything up.
