My Wiki’s Changelog

So, the intended way to browse this wiki is not in reverse-chronological order – ideally it’d be more like Wikipedia, where you start out curious about one thing and then suddenly realise hours have passed and you’ve read about two dozen more. However, particularly for people who’ve checked out my wiki before, I thought it’d be worthwhile to create a page that points out newly-published or recently-updated pages (in the case of the latter, only if the update was more substantial than fixing a typo or adding a link to a newly-published page).

12 August 2022

  • Edited: Occidental: Fixed a typo, wrote a paragraph about my experience thus far learning it, deleted that paragraph about that one person on Reddit finding it harder to understand spoken than Interlingua 😛
  • Edited: languages I’ve studied: Added Occidental, and rewrote text for German, to update this page for my current studies.
  • Edited: web browsers: Added Arc Browser, and a paragraph about which browsers I’ve been using this year (Vivaldi and just now Arc).
