I have been using Apple Watch since series 4 when my wife made me a gift and presented it to me. It was Apple Watch Nike Edition 42mm.

As a Mi Band user at the time, it was an upgrade in functions but a downgrade in battery life. However, the battery of the Series 4 hasn’t been so bad and allows me to easily last the whole day.

I have been reading for some time that one of your solutions for better SEO will be removing pages that are not performing well and just wasting a crawl time.

Redirecting them to the most relevant part (using redirect 301) or where such doesn’t exist, pointing back to the homepage and advising search engines that it’s gone (using redirect 410).

There is one problem with removing something from a page that you spend a lot of time creating. There is a sort of sentiment in it.

Even when I migrated from WordPress to Hugo I moved all pages to a new website. I have done an initial review and did some corrections, but never looked at the test from a merit point of view.

Generally, I am against using the rule of removing content that performs poorly in search engines. Not always the case, that the content is not desired. Sometimes simply is unique and targeting the niche that shall be here for some who will need it.

With such an approach, I am creating some of my posts. To give users something that I struggle to find. You can call it niche but in reality, this is something that some people are searching for and cannot find easily. If I struggle to find a solution and I will come up with my own, I would like to share this with the world.

Designing a website is not a thing that I am doing for a living. My day job is giving me the security needed, and everything else is a development of myself – to see what I can do and extend my skills. If at some point these “little” skills can change into something bigger, that’s great.

See my LinkedIn profile if you want to get in touch.

When I made websites, I discover new ways of doing the same things – improvement. I am not doing things (writing websites) in the same way, that’s the main thing. A new website is a new approach. I am reusing well-working elements, but still, it’s like making everything from scratch, and I like it.

With every new creation, I discovered ways how to improve projects that I have already live, and with this one there was no exception.

Do you even care when you click Agree on the cookie consent bar? Do you even know what that means for you or what the hell are they for? Are you just trying to get rid of them to go to the intended website without distraction?

As much as they were intended to give some knowledge to end-users, they became just a sign of frustration and pointless exercise.

If you’re thinking about sharing some of your thoughts or creations with the wider public, one of the good things is to start your website - a blog for example.

Initially, you may think that social media could do the job, but think about social media as a tool to promote your creation, not as a primary place for it. Always back up your stuff with something that is yours.

A blog, where you own the content is yours, not somebody else. On social media you don’t own stuff that you publish, social media companies did and they profit from it.

I have been using my M1 MacBook Air since the end of July 2021, when I replaced my beefed MacBook Pro that I purchased over a year earlier.

It was some kind of a downgrade at the time. My MacBook Pro (2020) has twice the memory and twice of storage as my “basic” MacBook Air. Also, I purchased my MacBook Air refurbished directly from Apple.

Months are passing. We already got rumours of MacBooks with M2’s to be released this year, but still, I look on my MacBook Air, and I can’t believe how such a small thing like an M1 chip could do such a big shakeup on the market.

“You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.”

That’s how the TV Series Person of Interest used to start in the past.

Since the last series was aired in 2016 past couple of interesting years. This TV fiction shows how abuse of power could lead to invigilation of the world citizens.

The problem starts when the fiction starts becoming reality, and we do not even know about it.

Just a thought…

Politics blaming each other’s, but right now trying to blame European people, that they don’t want to come and help Britain in need.

Everybody forgets what was shown last year. Thousands of HGV trucks have been stuck in companies car parks as they were not needed. The world has been fighting with Covid so no such many goods have been moving around.

When you buy Solid State Drive (SDD) the last thing is to have your drive fail and all files are lost.

With SSD is not as easy to restore anything as it could be with mechanical drives. If they fail it’s rarely anybody will bother to fix it, and most companies will just give you a new drive if it’s still on warranty.

Don’t expect any money back or help in the restoration of your files from faulty drives. None of the warranty covers that from any manufacturers - end of the story.

However, in this rare instance of failure, you expect swift action without any hassle and any extra cost for yourself. You already have a big (unrectified) cost for losing all your data so why to get another one?

And here the problem occurs.

I never classed myself as a creator despite I have learned to use new things to create something new.

I am more of a person who can use certain skills and available tools to achieve my goal.
