RIP previous entries

Just for the record, I started the weekly log in the 1st week of 2021, but the first entry above is for the 15th week because I have already removed the first 14 weeks' entries.

I have put the weekly log on hold, and I'm migrating stuff from the weekly log entries to independent blog posts.
