- 60? least memorable number ever
- that's like 261.32whatever Hz, what even is that

teaching that MIDI note 69 is A4 as a reference point:

- 440 Hz baby, that's a tuning standard
- i'll remember it until i die
- ehuehuehuehue

The weirdest thing to me about CORS is that you can't whitelist multiple sites in the same Access-Control-Allow-Origin header. It's either "*" or exactly one site.

So the standard solution is to echo back the referrer site, but only if it's whitelisted. "Ah yes, you are my one and only. I only allow requests from you." "Ah yes, you are my one and only. I only allow..." It's bizarre.

"what was it, Jetsy? Genky? Jortsy?" – me trying to remember how to get to
