    [–] Min: A minimalist browser-based browser porkslow 4 points ago in programmingcirclejerk

    Into the trash it goes

    With this logic you can throw into trash any chromium-based browser..

    I didn't know Chrome was written in JavaScript

    WP core developers have had these standards for at least 5 years but actually never bothered the follow them by themselves.

    [–] Plagiarism by 16 year old app developer who made headlines all over! porkslow 9 points ago * (lasted edited 16 days ago) in programmingcirclejerk

    Who gives a shit who wrote the app? It looks like the kind of CRUD app anybody with half a brain could put together it a weekend. It's not even CRUD, it probably just curls some endpoint somewhere to get the current price of magic beans.

    [–] Node.js is lighting fast. Why? First of all because it is async. porkslow 20 points ago in programmingcirclejerk

    Does Javascript still sound too archaic? Try Coffeescript (from the same author of Backbone.js) that compiles to Javascript. Coffescript makes cleaner, easier and more concise programming on environments that use Javascript (i.e. the browser and Node.js). It's a relatively new language that is not perfect yet but it is getting better: http://coffeescript.org/

    CoffeeScript? Backbone? When was this written, in 2012? Get with the times, gramps. TypeScript and React is where it's at in 2018.

    [–] Bubble, Bubble, Fraud and Trouble - New York Times article porkslow 20 points ago in Buttcoin

    As Robert Shiller, the world’s leading bubble expert, points out, asset bubbles are like “naturally occurring Ponzi schemes.”

    You can tell it by the Mt Gox reference since that exchange went belly up 4 years ago.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Apple Human Interface Guidelines. The concepts are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of user experience design most of the recommendations will go over a typical coder's head. There's also Jony's minimalist outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Dieter Rams, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these design principles, to realize that they're not just true- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Apple Human Interface Guidelines truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the meaning in Jony's existencial catchphrase "When something exceeds your ability to understand how it works, it sort of becomes magical" which itself is a cryptic reference to Dieter Rams' Ten Principles of Good Design. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Jony Ive's genius unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools... how I pity them. :joy: And yes by the way, I DO have a Apple tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they own at least 5 Apple products (preferably more) beforehand.
