Testing changes on the wrong system

"The code that you are running,
is that what you deployed?"

While writing these pages, I felt I needed to develop some improvements to both the oik-presentation plugin and oobit theme. I was changing them on my local development system. I normally create content on my development system, then clone it to the live server afterwards.

On at least two separate occasions I found it odd that my changes didn’t appear to be working. And then I remembered I was writing this content on the live site and I hadn’t yet deployed the changes.

When I pulled the site to my development environment I still found myself wondering why things weren’t working, then realised I was working on the live site, not in my development environment.
