Hello everyone!

We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.

You have done some updates to files, created or deleted files/folders so on. but want to get rid of all of it for some reason and go back to previous commit with git reset --hard command. For more information, click git reset link.
