A comment on read your own code.

Sometimes when going back to old code I scratch my head at why I did what I did. From this I learned to always cite example code I used as a basis for what I was doing even if the end code deviated radically from the example code. And I have now made it a habit of reading my own code periodically on working programs. I have sometimes had to rewrite working scripts to add better comments and better methods because I have learned to do things better over time.

I think that has been the best in helping me with my code is to never let working code lie.

    [choroba]: oh, if you already pushed, you should revert
    [Corion]: choroba: Naah, I don't mind rewriting history, at least when it is in my favour ;)
    [Corion]: Ruining other peoples clones is not nice, but as I only have that repo to (later) show people when I encounter problems, I don't mind that
    [Corion]: I should look into self-hosting gitprep instead of relying so much on github
