Been kinda sorta doing some work while on a kinda sorta vacation. And I’m discovering all sorts of issues, big and small, that did or could come up to make getting stuff done a real problem. For example, I took the smaller, lighter notebook but then realized it did not have all of my helper scripts and tools so my usual work routine was somewhat disrupted.
For people who make a habit of working on the road, what tips or lessons-learned can you share? How would you handle a hard drive crash? Lack of a ‘Net connection? Lack of available A/C power outlets?
I’ve been trying to keep assorted config files (vi, bash) in a git repo; I might also have them synced in Dropbox. Next trip I’ll bring my usual dev laptop, but I might also get a spare battery to bring along as well. I also need to get a stand-alone phone battery charger so I can be sure to carry a charged spare battery if I’m out all day.
