I think I just broke Backpack, the uber-trendy new personal publishing/information management tool. I’ve been using it to manage my first consulting project while I get a larger organizational system in order.
I was using it today, and started to notice it was not behaving. Every time I tried to load a page, it would show me the page with most of the notes in ‘edit’ mode, but when I tried to edit them, it would return just a portion of the page. Then I would try to re-load it, and it would be in weirdo-mega-edit mode again.
So I gave up and wrote the note I was working on in e-mail. I returned to my Backpack page to find this message:
Application error (Rails)
I’d like to personally apologize to all Backpack users for crashing the system. Sorry! I’ll try not to do it again… 😉
Update: By the time I finished writing this blog post, it was back up and running. Whew!
