Giving someone access to your local Github repository, in my case my RevoBoot and thus also ssdtPRGen repository, helped Jeroen to get stuff done for me… but earlier today I lost my local RevoBoot repository. Here is what happened.
Jeroen was about to test something for me, and then I want him to RM his RevoBoot directory. He only forgot that he was working remote, on my local drive, and thus POOF.
At that time I was updating ssdtPRGen and all of the sudden my Xcode window was emptied out. I had no clue what was going on. Not until Jeroen asked me why he couldn’t retrieve the latest files from the public repository. Well Jeroen. That is because I signed an NDA (remember) and thus I did not commit my work into the public repository, because that is verboten. I can’t do that. Not until the NDA is lifted. And since you RM’ed my local repository… we have to start over from scratch!
This of course is my own fault, because I should have made a backup first. Well I did, but in the RevoBoot directory and since that is gone now. Yeah. I love Sunday mornings… when I should have been doing something else instead of swearing.
No word can ease this, but I’m with you, man. I guess that will not happen a second time, though!
No worries. We have it covered. – I remembered most of my changes for ssdtPRGen and thus that should be fine.
The Haswell specific changes for RevoBoot are much more problematic, but I am about to disassemble my boot file to get the job done.
No interest / time to invest in a constant time machine? Works for me…
Sure. I do use Time Machine for backups, normally, but I installed a Apricorn Velocity Solo x2 with two Samsung Pro 256 GB drives and simply ran out of time. Bad excuse maybe, but I was busy with my new Haswell setup.
Note: The card isn’t mine. Just a loaner to see if I like it, which I do by the way. Totally, and thus now I want one.
