Re: Unit Testing with Mocks in Node · Sebastian Van Sande -
"For alternatives, I'm pretty fond of using mockery [1] and nodemock [2]. Mockery is like proxyquire, but it feels simpler to me. And nodemock is like sinon, but it has a fluent API to declare expectations you can assert later - eg. whether a function has been called, how many times, what test data it should return, etc. [1] [2]" - l.m.orchard

Re: We could have an open, user-controlled, ad-free Facebook -
"I've gone from banging my head on this constantly, to maybe an enthusiastic sprint every season or so. I'm convinced the core issues are usability and cost. Luckily, the cost-in-money is almost cents-per-month, these days. But, the cost in time and research getting all this stuff to work is a thankless climb for most folks. Ironically, after Radio UserLand, I think Apple's iWeb was one of the few decent attempts at packaging self-published web in a friendly way. My neighborhood association put it to great use, as did a few authors I knew. But, Apple didn't try very hard, and to this day cloud stuff baffles them. And that's sad, because I feel like they really could have built a shiny for-pay alternative to the free-but-we-spy-on-you paradigm." - l.m.orchard

Re: November snowfall closes Michigan universities -
"Nice conspiracy theory you've got going there. Average global temperatures on the rise changes climate. There was no replacement, just a refinement of the language used to describe the same issue. Scientists look for more precise ways to describe things all the time. That it's cold here and now (weather) doesn't mean the planet's not getting warmer overall (climate). The Earth orbits the Sun, so it still cycles between warm & cold throughout the year. But, changes in the arctic & the tropics muck with the pattern of winds that reach us here in Michigan. Colder winds are dipping farther south earlier and for longer periods than they used to. Climate & weather are complex & chaotic, weird things happen. Or, I guess you can stay in denial about our way of life needing to change, and blame it all on those evil liberals. I mean, whoo yeah let's wreck the incomes of the taxpayers so we can use their money to fund science projects... (how does that even work?) In the meantime, we're going to..." - l.m.orchard

If the music thing doesn't work out for @chvrches, maybe @nerdist can pick them up as co-hosts on the podcast! But, it'll probably work out.
