We’re smart, electronics- and computer-savvy folks, right? So why is it that when I’m trying to figure out which of my computers a particular EAGLE project is on, I have to envision where I was sitting:
- couch or kitchen == iBook or MacBook
- home office == workstation
- work is unlikely but == work computer
and about how long ago it was:
- more than a year == iBook
- less == MacBook
? Shouldn’t all of my files be available to me wherever I am? Why should I have to guess and look around and always have them in the wrong place?
Oh, sure, when I upgraded from the iBook to the MacBook, I could have used Migration Assistant to copy everything over; but it seemed like a great time to declutter, organize, and start fresh. And it was, until I didn’t get around to the organizing part and needed EAGLE files I hadn’t brought over yet. Like, now.
I’ve been home sick from work
today yesterday and today, and during the parts that I was awake I got files synced across my different platforms. I haven’t been playing sick to get a chance to sync up my computers — whatever I have is making me sniffle, speak about an octave lower than normal, drink gallons of orange juice, and listen to Madonna CDs. You don’t want what I have, and neither do the people I work with.
For a long time, I’ve been intending to install Unison for syncing my electronics project files (entire hierarchies, actually) across the different computers I use. Now I’ve actually done it.
