I've lost both my master branch and according to GIT, my HEAD (though I could have told it that). How do I get them back?
I'm not entirely sure of the steps that caused this however I have ended up without my GIT master branch.
I had a crack at fixing things using the instructions here: http://sitaramc.github.com/concepts/detached-head.html however my general ignorance of GIT may have left me in a worse pickle than I started out.
$ git branch
At some point I apparently started working on a detached HEAD and now I don't know how to find my master (I feel a little like Alice right now).
Attempting to checkout master gives:
$ git checkout master
error: pathspec 'master' did not match any file(s) known to git.
Attempting to pull master gives:
$ git pull origin master
* branch master -> FETCH_HEAD
