Agaric Quick Tip: if git status works yet 'not a repository', you're in a symlink

If git status works and git anything else doesn't, you are probably in a symlink.

ls -la doesn't show a .git directory, but git status gives results, but git pull says it's not a git repository?

cd up another directory or two (one at a time) and ls -la to see.
