First, thanks for the help I have received through this forum. I don't ask many questions, but the answers are always thoughtful / good.
After some thought, I decided to use git for my little projects. I am working on a Wordpress theme and it is very nearly done (just a few more hours!) I am using git / bitbucket for version control. i learned how to use it thoroughly and am happy with git, except for one thing - slow file updates after a pull.
Here is what I mean. I made a few edits on my desktop PC (Windows) on the stylesheet. I committed then pushed the changes to the remote. The next morning, I pulled (not a fetch / merge) the changes to my Mac laptop from the remote and because we are talking about a very small file (16k) it completes in very quickly. Unfortunately, after the pull, the file doesn't change in the working directory for several minutes. If I just walk away for a few minutes, the file will change and its all good. So, why is this taking so long? Everything else is very fast as you would expect...but the wait is just annoying.
Thanks ahead for any replies.
BTW - pull takes a long time going the other way as well (pulled to the PC) so I don't think it is a matter that the pull is coming to the Mac.....
