It’s so easy to leave a bunch of modified files in your local repo. It’s also lazy and leaves you vulnerable to being unable to revert mistakes.

Today I experienced the value of small commits. About a week ago, while walking through some feature changes with the my dev team, it seemed like I had implemented something that wasn’t necessary.

My local repo was clean (no uncommitted changes), so I made the code changes needed and performed a commit.

Over the weekend I noodled this project a bit more and realized that I had modified these files hastily. Upon further reflection, I knew that I need to revert these changes and reintroduce this feature.

Thanks to Git (and GitKraken) putting the feature back was as simple as selecting the commit and reverting it.

I signed up for an invite to Clubhouse months ago. I wasn’t actively pursuing invites from my network, but finally got an invite early last week. I’ve been active on the platform, in passive mode (that’s not an oxymoron) since then.

I truly believe this is a platform that can level the playing field for audio content delivery.

Over the last week I’ve connected with people in the aerospace community. I’ve learned about robotic mining missions and joined a room where we watched the Blue Origin launch of Bezos and Wally Funk (the watching occurred outside the room, of course).

I’ve connected with the Catholics’ Hub club and enjoyed praying with and listening to fellow Catholics from around the world. And I’ve laughed my butt off at some open mic comedy on Hot On The Mic.

Come join me @kregger !!

What evil comes from my own choices?

I suppose that, to me [from my perspective], all evil comes from my own choices. Certainly all evil over which I have any control.

For evil over which I have no control may still be judged to be evil, but it’s not MY evil. I didn’t create it — it came from the “reasoned” (or maybe not) choices of others. It’s detached from me.

How I choose to response to that evil IS my own reasoned choice, and I’d be best not to compound that original evil with more of my own creation. Therefore, I should reason about my response (as always…The Pause).
