Total foobar

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I decided to release my old set of flavour templates on the flavour registry and in so doing totally foobarred all the times on all the files of my blog. I recovered most of them (because I have a mirror that's usually off by a few days), but then I had to guess on the times for the latest four entries.

So that sucked. Given what I just went through, I'm beginning to think it's a terrible idea to use the timestamp on the file as the mtime. Blech.
