@grumpywizards For me, depends on the length of each method invocation, and the number of methods.@dennisporterjr anti-establishment? What's the establishment here? :)@dennisporterjr It’s just an observation based on how numbers in any base are created, then you remove those with any digit < 10@eyueltessema That’s still string concatenation!@dennisporterjr Thanks! To be fair, I came up w/ the solution first, and the exercise afterwards :P (Isn't that how it usually happens?) :)@headofthebored @juliancheal Including the dice and sunglasses? :PRe: https://t.co/wO3sWfrmGp My solution: https://t.co/Kxoqt1kXPd#JS challenge: Construct array of all [a-z]+ strings of length<N in lexicographic order, w/out string concatenation or String.fromCharCode()@StuRobson There is a source under the chart. But I’m honestly surprised with your disbelief. Are you living in a different Britain?Okay. I don't get this. People can't be this... THICK, right? http://t.co/O0AuJwyMgB
Retweeted by Lea Verou@juliancheal Not the same and I don't like chocolate. (sure, this has chocolate too, but many other things as well)What a brilliant, yummy idea! Can't wait for them to be widely available! https://t.co/dIGQGs2msoGoogle released hundreds of free icons: http://t.co/4UZZj0hLso Nice, but why not contribute them to the @nounproject?
@meyerweb Sounds like it’s going to be a fascinating talk. Wish I could watch it. :) My best wishes for it!!Bad #UX is not just a nuisance. It can literally kill. https://t.co/bBsFC0fpc6@dennisporterjr Oh yeah, totally! Thanks a bunch!@dennisporterjr Nice one! Were these animating along the circle? It’s not very clear in the screenshot.@dennisporterjr Haha, mainly because I want a screenshot for my book, so it would be nice if it was in the same language as the book.@dennisporterjr Yeah, that was the main one so far. Best example of this I've seen: http://t.co/fTHKg1rAHf (sadly, not in English)@_jimjum_ Thanks for the effort, but the issue with the XML is rather obvious.@dennisporterjr What I’m describing doesn’t help much in any of these cases.@_jimjum_ https://t.co/J2w8wuHubI@piazza Thanks! But how do I see my starred posts again? Also, it would be nice to be able to star comments (and link to them)@shinuza I can see that. The question is why, as it’s a generated file I’ve never touched.@voxpelli Thanks! Have you tried feed press? Do they have a lot of users? I don't want to have to keep switching…@joeaugie What PHP tags? I’m only using the official plugin… Don’t remember making any file edits…So, apparently, my blog feed is broken: http://t.co/y3BnJg2JE4 But I’ve changed nothing & just using @freedburner… Anyone facing same issue?In css-backgrounds-4, we’ll get a property for border clipping. Until then, border-image & gradients to the rescue! http://t.co/etu5yAOX3S
@fharper Sure, I’m honored! Though I think there are much better designers at dribbble :PThis is the best video ever! MIT Gangnam Style https://t.co/okpeh0mqwO Highlight: Noam Chomsky at 3:19 saying “Oppa Chomsky Style”@crsexton @kmsexton @juliancheal Awwww :( Jealous.
@gluedonbeard Ask me again in a month :)@nirmal_kumar @divya Because Opera is using Chromium and I guess the detector is not smart enough :)@naman34 Nope. They ran out of non-contract ones way before me in the line :/@manoz @real_css_tricks Depends on whether you support IE8 or not. Other non-supporting browsers are negligible.@stephoncemorris Are you repeating my joke or do you not know what TWSS means?@jjjjeeffff It’s not a 5, it’s a 5S :PFinally got my new iPhone 6+ today, after over a month of waiting!! First impression: OMG, it’s so huge! #TWSS http://t.co/SzSRHye7vg@_apsingh86 Doesn’t seem too. Always shows suggestions I never use first.
@bumi @slvrbckt @hackerbeach @dominictarr @juliancheal @xmartin @secoif Hopefully! Not sure I can afford it, I’m a poor grad student now :P@tabatkins You mean MRU, not LRU, right? That’s great, but utilizing usage counts would be even better.@gtramontina @TheCatFanSpeaks Nice to know!@cr1901 Are you kidding me? Sorting is O(nlogn) and we’re talking about rather small ns here.Why have I not seen a single editor/IDE that keeps stats of frequently selected autocomplete entries & shows them 1st in future suggestions?@fidonetrunes That’s a brilliant use case, thanks!
@piazza Feature request: Bookmarking questions or specific posts for future reference.@michaelarestad I will know in an hour.#ProTip Never let the foodie in the group pick a place to order from. I just spent 40mins trying to find the best nearby option on @grubhub!Is there any real use case of animating elements along a circular path (like http://t.co/L7NGA0ATF4 ) or is it just a nice CSS exercise?
Very nice illustration RT @rgourley: Why Users Aren’t Clicking Your Home Page Carousel #UX http://t.co/C50STfZgca http://t.co/FrHsSvhd6i

@gauravchl CoffeeScript is compiled anyway, so not sure why byte size matters.@pornelski goto fail?@gr2m @k0pernikus Huh, that’s a pretty cool idea! Nice!@gr2m @k0pernikus JSHint catches that? How? By indentation?@gr2m @k0pernikus Sure, but it adds to your cognitive overhead and it’s easy to forget, especially given one’s mental state while debugging!@gr2m @k0pernikus That simple return might soon become console.log(someDebugInfo); return foo; and then you have a problem.@stefsull I’m not! The other girl was taking the picture :PMIT people, partying hard on a Saturday night. (A study party is still a party, right? Right???) http://t.co/LW626q9SVV“CSS: It was 20yrs ago today: an interview with Håkon Wium Lie” So much fascinating history there— follow the links! https://t.co/our07CKJeO@pgbovine flat as a pancake :)@thebabydino They’re not private :) It’s as difficult for anyone to read them as it is for me :)@brianleroux Ternary ALL THE THINGS!!1!!1@brianleroux @tobie https://t.co/snn0jWHbwc@pgbovine That’s what I do too. But it's so interesting how people can have so many (justified!) opinions about something like this :)@leaverou Clarification: bar&baz are a simplification. Assume that the ternary operator isn't an option as there's more code in each branch.@tomasekeli Good call! That’s pretty much what I do as well :)@tomasekeli It was a simplification, in reality there would be more code before each return. #missingthepointCoding style poll: if (foo) { return bar; } else { return baz; } or if (foo) { return bar; } return baz; Which one do u use and why?
@robinberjon @simonsapin But you have to repackage it, seal it with some sort of tape or sth, you can’t just send an open package, right?@robinberjon @simonsapin But what about the hassle and time lost returning something?@stecb Yup! It was super useful cause I shipped tons of tp before I arrived to my apt here. I still use that initial 48 tp pack :P@stecb I buy toilet paper from @amazon too. :PExperiment #129434: Buying shoes from @Amazon Status: Completed. Outcome: moderate success. Soon I’ll be buying everything from Amazon.
@drale2k relational (SQL) database queries.TIL about Patricia Selinger who laid the foundations of query optimization. Her work is taught at every university worldwide. #womenintech@crsexton @juliancheal Haha, next time, when I don’t have as much coursework :)
@nikosft Wow! Btw note that the 4.3MB/s was in the dorms, not the university itself.@mpaluchowski Well, before this, the max I had seen was around 2MB/s, so, you’re lucky. :)@mpaluchowski Hey, you forgot to add #humblebrag :P@_bl4de I do enjoy it, but it’s really intense. I have no time for anything any more.@andrewliebchen I really don’t understand everybody’s Clover obsession. The food seems bland & monotonous to me.One of the things I love about being at MIT… http://t.co/oCH4mOX9Qt@shanehudson I love it, but I’m so crazy busy all the time! Doubt I’ll have time to go to IWC :(@_mestevens The profs are VERY different from person to person. There is no such thing as a general “MIT professor” stereotype.
@_mestevens It’s fantastic, but so much work! Of course there are cultural diffs between EU-US, but it’s not like I haven’t travelled b4 :P

Retweeted by Lea Verou@colmdelaney1 @branmovic I guess it’s difficult to think of an analogy with old media. There’s no adblock on magazines or TV.@gorhill @james2doyle @branmovic What does thought police have to do with it? Ad blocking is an action, not a thought.@colmdelaney1 @branmovic Well, same here. There is an implied contract between you, the user, and the website.@james2doyle That resolves to the ordinary moral question of whether immoral acts are justified on people doing other immoral acts.@scottvivian Still different. Your accepting these calls is not payment for the services, as you’ve paid them with money.@colmdelaney1 @branmovic That’s like saying that if someone leaves their door open, you’re free to steal their stuff.@scottvivian @branmovic Completely different. You are not using a service from them. By using a website, you implicitly agree on viewing ads@james2doyle @branmovic Of course not. Ad impressions are a *condition* for viewing, in its implicit contract. Clicking is voluntary.@gumnos @branmovic That’s the difference: It’s not voluntary. It’s the currency you pay to use the website. The alternative is not using it.@james2doyle @branmovic Selective theft is still theft. Ad impressions are a form of currency on the Web.@whrde Yup, and some do. Not enough, sadly.@gumnos @branmovic If it’s voluntary, then no, by definition. I’m not sure how you’re confused.Berkson’s fallacy: Why handsome men are jerks and popular novels awful https://t.co/OCkwqXrLH2 Damn, now I want @JSEllenberg’s whole book!
