Bye, bye ADSL…

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/27

As I got rid of some final hard coded IPv4 stuff, earlier this month I said good-bye to Ziggo cable internet.

Today, the xs4all ADSL line finally got disconnected as well:

Which means that the years of running an xs4all DSL connection over mxStream, KPN FAST ADSL and xs4all ONLY are over. Oh the days:

I’m still connected: fiber by xs4all and fiber by helden van nu and when all else fails KPN LTE or xs4all onderweg.

How to I show the changes which have been (non)staged or are about to be commited? – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/27

I love this StackOverflow answer by Abizern (who maintained a great 365git blog as well):

A simple graphic makes this clearer

git diff

Shows the changes between the working directory and the index. This shows what has been changed, but is not staged for a commit.

git diff --cached

Shows the changes between the index and the HEAD(which is the last commit on this branch). This shows what has been added to the index and staged for a commit.

git diff HEAD

Shows all the changes between the working directory and HEAD (which includes changes in the index). This shows all the changes since the last commit, whether or not they have been staged for commit or not.
