In today's episode of "I love/hate computers":

I just had to spend an hour re-implementing websocket things in my side project because, somehow, socket-io is completely busted after having upgraded everything + went on Node v12.

As in, it sends events massively delayed.

Pro: i learnt how to use `ws`
Con: I REALLY wish I didn't have to do doubt a package that is supposed to be /the/ default choice for easy-to-use WebSocket stuff in Node but here we are lmao

Anyway, shout out to socket-io for behavely weirdly for no explicable reason and having washed up docs. Thanks, I'll avoid you forever.
