  • A Mistake!

    Somewhere back a week or three I made a mistake in a website edit. The site is for a professional organization that I have been helping out. I was using my traveller notebook and I forgot to download the index.xxx files before I edited them. Well, not only did I edit a file several months old and upload it to the site but then later when I was back on the desktop machine I overwrote the good file with the old one. Guess when the last backup was made? Needless to say I made a mess of things that has taken two days to get all the data up on the site again.

    I was sufficiently disturbed that we left the boat early to get back to the desktop just to see if I had saved the correct file or over-written it. Not a good day yesterday! I am still sort of bummed.
