Sometimes I test in production and things go horribly wrong. Today was one of those days. Thank goodness I was using a bitemporal database! Today, I needed to rewind history on all my blog posts while testing sending of webmentions as I was accidentally overwriting the creation time of a post when setting a flag that I had successfully sent all its webmentions. Lesson learned!

Side benefit -- I now have the ability to show the history of a post and so forth. Sometimes taking off the safety net forces you to garner unexpected benefits. Of course, one must also have made good decisions leading up to the moment of removal of said safety net. 😅
