I'm done this four times now, always with the same failure. Here's the text from the terminal screen:

    Add .gitignore
$ git reset 4bd8403
fatal: ambiguous argument '4bd8403': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this:
'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'

Any suggestions? At this point I can't get any further in the lesson.


#2

It looks like you should be using 4db8403 instead.


#3

I've never thought of myself as dyslexic, but I must have typed that wrong every single time, and missed it each time I double checked it! I'm glad it was that simple - thanks for pointing it out.
