Question to my fellow bloggers out there. When you edit a previously published article, do you also update the publish date or add an “updated at” date?

If you answered yes, what kind of modifications do you consider worth adding an “updated at” date for? Even minor typo fixes or rewordings? Please add clarifications in a comment.

Thanks!

I tried the advanced UI for a while but reverted to the simple one. It's jut not for me; too much information at a glance. Did anyone have a different experience?

I just realized that I've been deploying a development build of my all along 🤦‍♀️ No wonder drafts were prematurely going live.

Note to self: RTFD!

You must’ve noticed by now the absence of ads and promoted content on . It’s so pieceful to be served only the content you intended to consume, isn’t it?

A message to our new friends:

1. Don’t use your Twitter password for your account. Reusing passwords is always a bad idea. A password manager is your friend here.

2. Set up your 2FA. You can do this from the browser or from within the official mobile app under Settings > Account Settings.

EU citizens, remember that you have the right to be forgotten. If you’re closing your Twitter account, you can write to them and tell them to delete your data and your account permanently and they must comply. You don’t have to leave your data with Musk if you don’t want to.

Controvertial poll 

Yesterday I had a discussion with some friends and I thought it is informative to know the general opinion my Fediverse. The question is simple:

Do you agree with the trend and the idea of renaming changing technical terms? Some example from the top of my head:
- git master branch -> git main branch
- Master HDD -> Main HDD
- Slave HDD -> Secondary HDD

Boosts are highly appreciated.
