I told my three month old daughter the sum of what I know of the world after close to 32 years: dogs good, people bad.

If you suggest beg people to “pray” during the current corona crisis or any other real crisis: fuck you. Seriously: go to hell. And try to do something that actually helps. If you’re rich donate some fucking money

🤬😡

Hello. I’m Eivind, I work as a web developer at Sbanken and I live right outside Bergen, Norway.

When I’m not writing C# or React code at work, I’m usually at home hanging out with my girlfriend, daughter or my two dogs. I spend my time trying to stay in shape, taking pictures or coding golang.

My editor of choice in Emacs, browser is Firefox, my shell is fish and I prefer OS X.

I’m also one of those weirdos that enjoy writing in notebooks with fountain pens and pencils

Sadly all this data is for Chrome, though – it would be interesting to see the results for another engine, e.g. Firefox.

That said, I think TypeScript is awesome for JS libraries, and WebStorm gains smarter autocompletions if the library uses TypeScript. So I make a point of writing .d.ts files for anything I publish to npm.

But for my own projects, I don't see much point in using anything other than JS. Typing a bunch of extra stuff just slows me down. Adding a build step (Babel, TypeScript, whatever) also just slows me down. I prefer vanilla JS wherever possible.

Dear fellow white dudes, I propose an idea: the next time you think to yourself “I should start a podcast about X” — totally follow through, but also subscribe to or pay for content from not a white dude.

FOSS terminology subtoot(s) 

ugh. people still confused about the terminology.

free-as-in-freedom and open source differ almost not at all in terms of licenses and how they apply to what you can do with the code. *neither* approves read-only, no-derivatives, 'source available' licenses.

should have my website show a message if you _don’t_ have an adblocker installed recommending that you get one

@dgold I have deeply complex feels on this topic, as kfogel is a friend- someone I care about as much as I do any member of my family. He's a kind person who I think genuinely believes in doing good and I just don't think understands the issue.

At the same time, I think this terrible of him and is unacceptable for QCO, an organization that I volunteered at and quit over this exact issue.

Everyone knows the web is a leaky mess, but people blame the browsers ("Chrome is a memory hog!") instead of the websites. I guarantee you that the Chrome team has way better memory metrics than the average website author. If you go looking for memory leaks in websites, you will find them in spades (e.g. see plasma-umass.org/BLeak/).

The next frontier in web performance is memory usage and memory leaks.

Another thing I'll say about this project: web developers focus a lot on bundle size as their key performance metric, because it's easy to measure and understand. Recently, more folks are actually looking at CPU performance too (Lighthouse, WebPageTest, etc.).

Almost nobody is looking at memory.

In the course of writing Pinafore, I am apparently going to re-implement every damn thing ever, because my standards are way too high and I have too much free time
