Day 59: Backups

It happened today. My computer froze and rebooted. When I tried to reopen my Unity project, it was corrupted and wouldn’t load. For a brief moment my blood ran cold.

I’ve been working on the Tower Defense tutorial since Day 22. That’s a lot of time.

Thank goodness I’ve been pushing to Github after every video. But I’ve never actually tried pulling a commit.

When I did so, I got errors about fixing merging changes and some other stuff I didn’t understand.

In the end I just deleted the entire project from my hardrive, cloned it back from Github and started a new branch going forward. I know that wasn’t the proper way to do it, but since I’m the only one working on this project it had to do.

I’m just thankful I have backups and they are offsite in case my computer completely crashes.

Current Progress Status

  • Tower Defense Tutorial: 56/73
  • Clean Code by Robert C. Martin (pg 185/464)

Onward!
