Yep. OTP comes out daily but I don't always post it here. If you want to get every edition you can subscribe for free here:

Not to be confused with my personal blog, Death By Tech which has at least one, usually two, free posts per week. And always at least one post for paying subscribers that just like my work. I usually remember to post the free ones here, but if you want to be sure to get em all you can subscribe (free or paid) here: jonwatson.substack.com/

That's the subject of today's Death By Tech blog post. This one's for paying subscribers but there's a smoking good deal on the site's About page you can use to keep up with all my stuff.
