PHP5, released in 2014, has reached its end of life in 2018, but many hosters continued to support it. If you have any custom PHP applications, you might still be running them on a server that has a PHP5 runtime.

vim. Colour me surprised when what I saw in the terminal was not vim, but nano. After a few days of procrastination and consideration I thought it wouldn’t be too much to write a post about how to quit different text editors.

So Bitdegree reached out to me and asked me to have a look at them, which is what I’m doing in this post. It’s not a paid promotion and I’ve had a sceptical look at the site.
