The problem is when you have a lot of posts, names start overlapping, or you want to make the date it was from more visible.

Still I do agree it can be useful!

Bookmarked Vanity URL for Go packages
Post details
Introduction If you have been working with Go programming language for a while, you would have noticed that a lot of open source packages that you import start with github.com/…. You would then use go get command to download the package and add it to your go.mod file. For instance: $ go get -u github.com/abvarun226/goiplookup What if you did not want this dependency on Github and rather wanted to host your own git server?

Bookmarked Hard to work with.
Post details
Managing teams has taught me a lot about my own behaviors and motivations. For example, I overworked for a long time. This left me continually teetering on the brink of burnout, and I had no energy left to absorb the typical sorts of organizational changes that happen at any company. Despite doing good work, I handled change poorly, and I picked up the reputation for being difficult to manage. I’d like to say that I learned from my mistakes directly, but the honest version is that I came to understand this dynamic mostly through working with folks struggling from the same issue.

Bookmarked Avoid using else | freek.dev
Post details
Using else often encourages complexer code structure, makes code less readable. In most cases you can refactor it using early returns.

This is a good tip for any language!

Bookmarked Why does java.net.URL's hashcode resolve the host to an IP?
Post details
Is the idea after the first resolution it'll rely on OS caching? Still this seems inefficient and in cases of multiple domains resolving to the same IP, incorrect. What am I missing?

I've been bitten by pinning to latest versions before and definitely agree that where possible we should make sure that things are pinned exactly.

Then we can use tools like Whitesource Renovate / Dependabot to manage updates automatically.
