Yes you did


git fetch --depth=1000000

in your original repository.  That should convert it from a "shallow"
repository to a full one.

That didn't work :(

It's ok. I don't work with my own branches ever. I make a patch and
save the patch, then I do a hard reset (with lilygit) and make the
next patch, save the next patch etc then apply patch X when I need to
change it or push it. There are many cons to that method I know :) but
the pros for me outweigh them.

My patches tend to touch files that no one else touches :( so it's
rare I ever end up with a patch that cannot be applied at a later

So I didn't lose any work.

I'm not sure if Phil wants to leave his machine running during his day
(I know it's too noisy during the evening) but I'll let him tell me
when he wants to schedule his. I have said I get intermittent loss of
internet so him and I running in tandem or Phil filling in the odd gap
in my schedule would make my lack of internet less problematic.

Not saying I am down that much, but very occasionally it has been for
a whole day.
