In a chance glance through the Git history of one of my projects last week, I found commit
53331294. A hash with eight leading numbers! A sequence like this isn’t particularly rare, but it’s also not an everyday occurence.
Today at work, I notice the palindrome
39eee93 while using
git reset1. SHA-1 works in mysterious ways. 🤔
If you’re musically inclined, what melodies use the natural notes bar G? The lick is unfortunately not SHA-friendly.
When you commit next, consider a pause to admire the hash. Who knows what pattern you might spot?
1 If you find yourself navigating the fog that is
git rebase, remember to throw out a tag here and there. It’s a great catch if (like me) you occasionally need to reset. 😅
