    I look back at my old work and it seldom feels good when I put it against the standard I currently aim for but it needs to be tempered by some context that work I did 10 years ago (or a year ago, whatever timeline) was trying to solve a problem or hit a target at that time and that I'd have used whatever tools and techniques were available at the time.

    It doesn't mean my old work is "bad" or I haven't improved in that time, it sometimes means the current criteria for measuring that is different.

    Old me 10 years ago would shit a brick to see new, improved me pondering using a load of framework cruft to make a simple website.
