When working on code, do not. I repeat. DO NOT. Delete. Old versions.

Because now I'm stuck (okay, I could figure it out and recode the damn thing) with this new linkbar. :P

Ah well.

edit: to illuminate. new linkbar to add tracking icon. Was trying new code thinking I'd be 'lazy'. New code is not easy to move the icons around due to nature of population. Figured out from new code how to go back to old code and insert new icon. Realized I had copy-pasted *OVER* old code, saved things, etc,etc. Dumbdumbdumb.

learned that one the hard way, too. Got stuck with a webpage that was totally fubar and I couldn't go back to the old one because I'd hit save like a total idiot and lost the old code.

I now have one copy that I instantly copy to another drive or folder and then have the one that I experiment with, just in case I forget to do a 'save as'

sorry that it happened to you cause I know it must have really pissed you off.

Not really pissed me off, other than to feel dumb at my n00bness. It is after all a minor GUI issue. :P

ok, I'd have been pissed off. I hate it when I do totally inept things like that because it's never just a GUI issue with me, it's more of a "oh great, now I have to rebuild the entire page again and I don't remember how I did it the first time!" issue. But then, I'm an all or nothing girl, so that's not real surprising :)
