like a version.

Last night I set up activeCollab on my website. I did this for two reasons.

1. Backup. I’m uploading each thing I work on to my webspace every day anyway. Now I will just do it through activeCollab, and it will be more organized because of…

2. Simple version control. I’m the only one working on these things (but that may not always be the case), but I never want to run into that cliche of being asked by my committee to revert to the chapter as it was before I made all those revisions, only to find I’ve lost the copy without the revisions.

But, I can also maybe use this to share the documents.

Critical readers who know how grad school goes may raise an eyebrow and say, “New blog, now this? Is someone perchance procrastinating?” But no, I protest! My web host, Dreamhost, offers quick one-click installation and upgrades of a variety of tools (including WordPress and activeCollab), which is so nice and easy when you are like me and know just enough about wrangling things from the command line to make progress until you get yourself into trouble and have no idea how to get out of it.

No, I’m not rationalizing. 🙂 Back to work…
