Got Git?

pro-gitJoined GitHub, and am reading a book on Git. I don’t think I have anything important to contribute to the world.

Well I like how the world solves problems, and or sometimes just decides to change something. Like back when I first started learning about source control, I learned about it by myself using my MSDN at CLFD back in 1999 using Microsoft SourceSafe. Next I realized that the rest of the world (the hardcore command line folks) used Concurrent Versioning Systems(which I later learned on when I was with FEMA in the Washington DC area in 2009. I spent a good amount of time in 2001-2003 learning Websphere & Java stuff, including Apache HTTP web server, and later found out they took over Subversion. So now, and for many years Apache Subversion was the top dog. But along came Git & GitHub. Now I have my cheatsheet coming from Subversion going to Git.
So yes, I have worked with MS-SS, CVS, Subversion, and something else, I think…. unless it was merely a commercial version of some Version Control software. And since Subversion(cheatsheet) is the most recent(one-back) so I included a link to read more about it.

Molasses Crinkle Cookies

  • 3/4 cup all-vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Cream shortening and brown sugar together in an electric mixer. Mix in eggs and molasses until combined. Stir dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, then slowly add to mixer on low speed until combined and a thick dough forms. Wrap dough in plastic and chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour. Shape heaping teaspoon scoops into balls, roll balls in sugar and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten each ball slightly and top with a small piece of crystalized ginger. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes.
