Discussion 3 - Elliott Clark

I had an image crash on me and I lost all of milestone 2 that I created for my group. Iím not sure what caused the corruption but it was a major blow since I lost almost everything. I recovered some of it from the changes set but some of the programming was a total loss. I have since learned to backup my working image and change set more frequently. I had relied on the saving but not any more. I now use cron to tar gzip my entire working directory if anything has changed every two hours. Then I go and delete the unused tar gzips after the milestone is finished.

I read http://coweb.cc.gatech.edu/cs2340/4734 by Jiasheng He. This looks like exactly what I needed to make squeak more usable for me. I was always anoyed at having to save everytime I changed from one procedure to another procedure. Being able to see how a function is called and be changing that font seems like it will greatly increase the searching and editing capabilities.
