How to keep yourself out of trouble:

  • Don’t customize for the sake of customization

  • Make backups of all files before editing

  • Use the # key – copy a variable before editing it

  • Add comments as you go for documentation

  • Don’t mess with files that might affect other users

  • If possible, create a test environment
