The 2017 has just begun and I wish to tell again my adventures in programming and my IT passions in general. It is an ambition because my job is very heavy and gives me little time left. But like an Italian idiom that says "There's no harm in trying", I want to risk!
Last week I changed my default view for cloud tag with a new one that orders the taxonomy terms based on their weight.
