People who tell computers how to behave, what would you rather be called?

(I can only put 4 choices, write-ins encouraged in replies, "hacker" is another term I would have liked to include.)

Oh shit, @pla got hit by a car..
He was one of the first person I've ever followed on the fedi. His unique mixture of of tech and bicyles will be missed 😭


He died doing what he loved.
Fuck cars.

Recently I learned that the Spread syntax in JavaScript (...) allows the inner expression to return something falsy, and that just won't insert anything in the object. That allows you to turn this: {...(maybeObject || {})}‌ into this: {...maybeObject}. Neat!

Actually even something like {...23}‌ turns into an empty object, it's not just falsy things that get filtered. I guess is all non-Object things. Not even a simple Map gets inserted. Arrays are perfectly fine Objects with indexes as keys though. =)

TIL that this neat property only holds for the object Spread syntax. The array Spread syntax strictly requires an iterable. So you *do* need to have [...(maybeIterable || []). If you try [...false]‌ you get TypeError: boolean false is not iterable (cannot read property Symbol(Symbol.iterator)). That's disappointing, the new syntax additions otherwise have tended to be more consistent than that.

Anyway, Sahel Sound still has their entire digital catalogue available, name your price and vibe to the desert sound: sahelsounds.bandcamp.com/

Years go by, people change places, the names and conventions are not the same but sooner or later you get a mob of bullies who either do it for "the lulz" or for some kind of purity crusade.

Grow, rot, flee, rinse, repeat.

So, JavaScript is 25 years old today. The oldest case I can think of of it being treated as an assembly language is Haxe, released 15 years ago. Is there an even earlier occurence of a language that compiles to JavaScript I'm missing?

if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day

a day in which it's far easier to teach him how to fish because he's not fucking starving to death

You can't understand Belgium if you wonder why Fally Ipupa is in the YouTube local recommendations

Every manpage should have an EXAMPLES that shows how to do the very basic, most obvious thing with the command line tool or library function.

Do have people feedback with M/monit (mmonit.com) as a monitoring dashboard?

I'm using Monit for alerting and it's doing the job, but I'm missing a page for checking the current state of all the servers.
