google docs edit link: no undo history
A person with an edit link has no access to the undo history in Google Docs. I found this out by opening one of my links in Chrome’s Incognito Mode, and hitting the Undo button.
This is good IMO, because sometimes things can be added during the process of creating a document that I’d rather not share.
two quick git tips
Two things I learned today:
- If you’re committing files in a directory on a server, and getting permission errors, just change the owner of the .git directory to the account making the commits. I did chown -R batkin:staff. Changing the permissions of the other files can have unwanted side effects, so I prefer to do them only as needed.
- To stage all files deleted outside of git on the command line, run git add -u. I learned this on Stack Overflow, which has been a tremendous resource for me.
