    1. While I certainly don’t think that all configuration should be “self hosted” in this kind of way

      how is it "self hosted"? in what way?

      I think I found the answer here https://github.com/rails/sprockets/blob/master/UPGRADING.md:

      One benefit of using a manifest.js file for this type of configuration is that now Sprockets is using Sprockets to understand what files need to be generated instead of a non-portable framework-specific interface.

      So it is "self-hosted" in that Sprockets is using Sprockets itself for this...?

    2. Instead of having this confusing maze of lambdas, regexes, and strings, we could, in theory, introduce a single entry point of configuration for Sprockets to use, and in that file declare all assets we wanted to compile. Well, that’s exactly what the manifest.js file is.
    3. Before we get into what the manifest.js does, let’s look at what it is replacing.
    1. Our mission is to allow people to make money via educational efforts and to dedicate the rest of their time to creating great open source products.

      What does this mean exactly? "Our mission is to allow people to make money via educational efforts"

    1. While Trailblazer offers you abstraction layers for all aspects of Ruby On Rails, it does not missionize you. Wherever you want, you may fall back to the "Rails Way" with fat models, monolithic controllers, global helpers, etc. This is not a bad thing, but allows you to step-wise introduce Trailblazer's encapsulation in your app without having to rewrite it.
    1. Beware, though: What you are about to see is not particularly elegant. In fact, the TTY subsystem — while quite functional from a user's point of view — is a twisty little mess of special cases. To understand how this came to be, we have to go back in time.
    1. Some people believed I argued that object orientation is bad simply because extends has problems, as if the two concepts are equivalent. That's certainly not what I thought I said, so let me clarify some meta-issues.

      first sighting: meta-issue 

    1. If you think you’ve conveyed something but the other person hears something completely different, is that their fault or yours? 
    2. From my perspective the onus is on you to consider not just the words coming out of your mouth, but how they are received.
    3. Everyone has their own background and context that they overlay on top of what they hear. It’s our jobs as communicators to consider that perspective and to adjust the way we communicate accordingly. If we do, we stand a better chance of persuading them to agree with our point of view.
    1. People often hear what they think should be said, not the words that are actually spoken. This comes from the tendency of people to think faster than they talk. A listener makes assumptions about what they expect because their minds race ahead. This can be especially problematic when you misinterpret what your boss said. 
    1. We do know what our customers ask us for: powerful desktops and laptops that work with them in their creative endeavors. And we know that Canonical is no longer interested in catering to them. So we're going to try and step up.
    1. I disagree, but I can't downvote it, because it is an important POV.

      What do you disagree with? Why? Why don't you share why? Apparently not the "answer" part, because you can downvote that, so you must mean one of the comments. Which one? Why is it an important POV?

    1. Simple ways to do more with spreadsheets

      For me the key is use cases within my discipline--teaching and how students can use them. I don't like to teach stuff that won't reap students dividends in productivity, learning, sharing, gathering info effectively, time saving.

    1. In other words, programs that send messages to other machines (or to other programs on the same machine) should conform completely to the specifications, but programs that receive messages should accept non-conformant input as long as the meaning is clear.
    2. be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others
    1. Progress is made of compromises, this implies that we have to consider not only disadvantages, but also the advantages. Advantages do very clearly outweigh disadvantages. This doesn’t mean it perfect, or that work shouldn’t continue to minimize and reduce the disadvantages, but just considering disadvantages is not the correct way.
    2. The “no-snaps” ship already sailed years ago…you folks missed that boat. It’s too late to wish for a return to the past. Snaps in Ubuntu have been happening for years already, and will continue regardless of any opinions expressed here.

    1. People really don't stress enough the importance of enjoying what you're programming. It aids creativity, makes you a better teammate, and makes it significantly easier to enter a state of flow. It should be considered an important factor in choosing a web development framework (or lack thereof). Kudos!

    1. Fallback values aren't used to fix the browser compatibility. If the browser doesn't support CSS custom Properties, the fallback value won't help.
    1. passive: true instructs chrome that no body will call e.preventDefault() so chrome can optimized scrolling just because no body will call e.preventDefault and so there is no need to wait listeners...
    1. Ultimately, I’m an “are there tough decisions?” kind of gamer, and on that matter I’m torn. There are some turns and some positions and some situations that will play themselves. Sometimes obviously so, and sometimes after you think it out.
    2. I’m fan of maps (in real life and in games), and the map play here is interesting
    3. What vaults this well past SNCF for me (setup time aside), is the limited company choice; it prevents a feedback loop of sorts where a game devolves into running each company in the ground.
    1. We are working to develop better communication within TC39 and with the broader JavaScript community so that this sort of problem can be corrected sooner in the future.
    1. i like working on application frameworks, compilers, interpreters, and emulators.
    1. but know I know what I don't want to do. I definitely know I want to be an Engineer now, and it makes it more clear that I should start my own business.
    1. To appreciate the social role of Broca and his school,we must recognize that his statements about the brainsof women do not reflect an isolated prejudice toward asingle disadvantaged group. They must be weighed inthe context of a general theory that supportedcontemporary social distinctions as biologicallyordained.

      Here's the "So what? Who cares?"

    1. will only apply up the chain

      Should this "up the chain" be "down the chain"?

      In terms of a tree, I think of the caller/consumer/thing that imports this file as "up" and the things that I call/import as "down".

      That is more consistent with a tree, but not a stack trace (or any stack), I suppose, which has most recently called thing at the top ("up"), and the consumer of that at the bottom ("down").

    1. Things that I miss most from Vue:
    2. What bothers me most from Svelte: <!-- I want to bind the value of this custom input just like I would bind to normal input --> <input bind:value="query" /> <!-- works --> <search-input bind:value="query" /> <!-- doesn't work :/ -->

      I think this works in current Svelte

    1. Retagging the HTML/CSS questions to use html-heading seems the right thing to do. For the other uses, I don't have enough grounding in the geographic area to know whether the direction and bearing are replacements for heading. But the tag information for heading should be created and should firmly point at the other tags — at least until it is expunged.
    1. We could broadcast a warning if we find the variable to be set in the environment, but that is more likely than not to annoy people who intentionally set it.

      New tag?: warnings that may annoy people who intentionally do something. (Need a way to selectively silence certain warnings?)

    1. “"

      Which character is this referring to exactly?

      It looks like the empty string, which wouldn't make sense.

      https://www.postgresql.org/docs/13/functions-matching.html only lists these 2:

      If pattern does not contain percent signs or underscores, then the pattern only represents the string itself; in that case LIKE acts like the equals operator. An underscore (_) in pattern stands for (matches) any single character; a percent sign (%) matches any sequence of zero or more characters.

    1. Note that these are not hyperlinks; these URIs are used for identification. This is a machine-readable way to say “this is HTML”. In particular, software does not usually need to fetch these resources, and certainly does not need to fetch the same one over and over!
    2. Don’t fetch stuff unless you actually need it Judging from the response to our 503 errors, much of the software requesting DTDs and schemata from our site doesn’t even need them in the first place, so requesting them just wastes bandwidth and slows down the application. If you don’t need it, don’t fetch it!
    1. perhaps, imo this would make more sense. but it would slow down Parcel significantly as packages who don't have a browserslist or something similar will all get compiled (and most packages actually do target commonjs, which makes this prob not such a good idea). Which unfortunately is way too many packages. It would be great if tools like babel actually enforced a similar pattern to Parcel and use browserlist file or package.json instead of allowing defining target env in babel. Or at least not encourage it.

    1. What is Tableau If you are here, it must be because you, too, have heard the buzz surrounding Tableau. This inevitably brings us to the question, what is Tableau? Tableau software has been elected as a leader among the business intelligence tools for seven consecutive years.

    1. You probably want initialValue! ⚠️ The value of the field upon creation. This value is only needed if you want your field be dirty upon creation (i.e. for its value to be different from its initial value).
    1. Three tests to prove a small piece of behavior. Although it might seem overkill for such a small feature, these tests are quick to write—that is, once you know how to write them

    1. Tree of Life

      The 'Tree of Life' has been present throughout many cultures and religions across history. It has been known by many different names but the meaning is always a source of life or a creator. The ancient Egyptians, Christians, Myahs, and Assyrians all believed in this 'Tree of Life.'

    1. Customers care more about the value our application adds to their lives than the programming language or framework the application is built with. Visible Technical Debt such as bugs and missing features and poor performance takes precedence over Hidden Technical Debt such as poor test code coverage, modularity or removing dead code

    1. Now, you feel a sudden urge to use it. You ping your team lead or send a message to your whole team about this cool new way of doing things, and you suggest that you start using it.
    1. Course as community onboarding

      I like this idea - as when joining a community figuring out the 'rules of engagement' can be hard, and also

      • who to go for what
      • what do I need to know to start
      • how does this community work

      For team on-boarding, project on-boarding, etc - it can also guide people towards other courses / resources that may be more ongoing or of other types

    1. of, relating to, or being a grammatical case or form expressing means or agency

      I really need an example of this!

      It seems unusual that they specifically mention "a grammatical case or form". I've never seen a definition before that is anything like this one.

      How is this different from definition 1?

    1. Requested Dormant Username Enter the username you would like to request, without the preceding URL (e.g., "User" instead of "gitlab.com/User")

      Problem Type: Dormant Username Requests

    1. The GitLab.com support team does offer support for: Account specific issues (unable to log in, GDPR, etc.) Broken features/states for specific users or repositories Issues with GitLab.com availability
    2. Out of Scope The following details what is outside of the scope of support for self-managed instances with a license.
    1. We believe everyone deserves to report to exactly one person that knows and understands what you do day to day. The benefit of having a technically competent manager is easily the largest positive influence on a typical worker’s level of job satisfaction. We have a simple functional hierarchy, everyone has one manager that is experienced in their subject matter.
    1. When is your site not built with the Jamstack? Any project that relies on a tight coupling between client and server is not built with the Jamstack.
