I moved my Git repo to a new folder and now I'm getting a ton of modified files, help!

22 February, 2018

I'm running Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) on Windows 10. I downloaded a Git repo under the WSL mount. I noticed that whenever I used Windows/Visual Studio Code to save files, the permissions would reset to 000. I spoke with a colleague and his setup was different than mine.

I had the Git repo inside WSL mount.

His Git repo was on the Windows/C-drive mount and he had a soft-link to the repo. He did not face the permission issue.

So after I pushed out my latest changes, I decided to move my repo. This was the easy part. I made a softlink using

 ln /directory/ /linkdirectory/

However, after the repo was moved and I modified one file, it was a bit unnerving to find out that ALL the files were listed as modified. I browsed around and saw that this could've been due to the line-endings on Linux vs. Windows.

It wasn't until I updated these two settings that the rotten state in Denmark became a happy state:

git config core.autocrlf true
git config core.filemode false

Euless, TX Water Quality Reports

22 February, 2018

When we moved from Irving to Euless, one of the first things I noticed about this house was the water taste. I can't remember if it was better or worse, but I could tell that it tasted different. I immediately purchased a filter and today I was curious where the city gets the water from. I found the below PDFs on the city's website.

Panasonic Lumix G7 Review

06 February, 2018

I purchased this camera on Black Friday '17. At the time, I was researching a few cameras and when I saw the sale, it was a no-brainer.

It's a wonderful camera with beautiful lenses. I should probably mention that this is my starter camera. I initially bought it for cinematography purposes but I feel it has a 70/30 (photography/cinematography) ratio. This is mainly due to the one gripe, yet an important one, that I have with this camera. That is the "focus hunting". You can find videos online that discuss this nuisance. For the first couple months, I didn't hit this roadblock, but yesterday when I wanted it to stay in focus as I was sliding back, it just would not.

You can certainly work around this "defect", but for such an expensive camera, I am a bit puzzled they would release it with this flaw.
