What is going on!! 1


Be a digital historian they said. It will be fun they said. You will learn the most up to date technological things they said.
They lied.

No one warned me how many times I would want to throw my computer in a lake and become a hermit in a cabin in the woods with no wifi. It is a little disheartening to be this overwhelmed this early in the semester. I tired to follow Josh’s instructions but since I am a mac user, I wound up more confused than before. Even though FileZilla is available for Mac and PC, it kept crashing. As soon as I opened it, my computer would warn me it was a bad file and only let me trash it.

Reclaim suggested Cyberduck. I spent the past hour and a half trying to translate the FileZilla instructions to something I can use. I had to walk away.

I am currently waiting for Dreamweaver to update. Maybe once I have had a full night’s sleep and my blood isn’t boiling anymore I will have better luck.

I am open to suggestions from other Reclaim/Mac users.

    I have found myself losing many precious hours to dreamweaver and ftp servers this week as well. I’ve finally overcome many of the problems, but I think that web design is one of those activities in which you start out at 10:00 in the morning and suddenly look up to find it’s 5:00 in the afternoon! Lacey has great instructions on how to sync your cyberduck to your Reclaim host. Good Luck!
