I've previously described my normal mode of enjoying the hobby of operating system development, i.e. restarting from the ground every time I get some time, and then forgetting everything once school starts.
That's exactly why I started writing down what I'm doing in this blog.
The thing is, I didn't really keep to this at the end of summer, and ran ahead a bit with the programming, thinking I should catch up with the blogging at a later time. Obviously, I didn't do this...
When I took a look at the state of my code a week or so ago, I noticed I hadn't even checked in my changes since August. So that's what I did, and then I branched off the last commit I blogged about (756852fc66) and made that the new master branch.
For future reference (I'll probably cheat again someday) there were the commands for this:
$ git commit -m 'Bad excuse for not checking in before' $ git checkout -b new_master OLD_COMMIT_SHA $ git merge --strategy=ours master $ git checkout master $ git merge new_master
Anyway. I'll get right on describing what I've been doing...
