Lancia Ardea - Bizarre

I double backed to the Mountain View Trader Joe's parking lot a few weeks ago to inspect a catchy looking vintage car that I didn't recognize. I thought - had hoped - that it was a rare rear-engine Mercedes. Turns out it was a Lancia Ardea. It struck me so much that I snapped a couple photos.

Then, to my surprise, shortly thereafter runs an ad for a nearly identical Lancia Ardea for sale in Hollywood. Bizarre. And they even wrote, "We don’t see this model on offer in The States very often."

Kirby's Third Law of Software Engineering

Always be ready to answer the question, "What have you done for me lately?"

Managers don't care if you were a super star two quarters ago. They only care what have you produced last week. And when they want to know, they want to know now. I always maintain some means to answer this question quickly: a Word document, a Jira query, a spreadsheet, a notebook. I even created an Access database for two different jobs where I had to track who I was billing to.

git stash show all

Seems to me there should be a git stash show all command.
Perhaps there is.
Alas, I couldn't find one.

So I wrote one. Not very complicated.

# Created by Jeff Kirby on 3/30/12.
for stash in `git stash list | sed 's/\(\w*\)\:.*/\1/'`
   echo "$stash Contents"
   git stash show $stash
