I've been trying much harder to read more web and design books lately. I think the problem with reading most text book tomes is the fact they feel like a bit of a slog to get through compared to snacking on blog posts. In the past I have relegated the task to some ideal moment when I suddenly have lots of time. This, of course, never happens or very very rarely at best.
So lately, I've taken a new approach. Put simply it seems to work much better for me if I try really hard to read a single chapter a day. In fact I've taken to doing this with novels as well as web/design books.
I've been trying to use GIT for years now, but have buried my head in the sand as it has always seemed a bit tricky. I've also tried a lot of different GIT clients and a few different ways to get myself into it but all have fallen flat.
As I rarely work on shared code, GIT is easy to ignore altogether. But as a basic work-flow procedure, providing backups and a way to get back to previous versions it started to be silly to not use it.
