ya. Robeson Creek is a really nice place to paddle, and easy acess on the Haw River. - Patrick Mueller

The length and breadth of this blog post, which was tl;dr for me, is why I don't really give a shit about "REST" anymore. Haven't for years, really. Just give me the goddamn HTTP client/server APIs/interfaces/libraries already. - Patrick Mueller

Lodsys Responds to Apple, Files Lawsuits Against App Developers - http://www.macrumors.com/2011...
Ignore the specific Lodsys issue for the moment; a Lodsys blog entry provides some crushing reality from the iOS developer agreement: "Apple's total liability to the Application Developer is limited to a maximum of $50. So, Apple’s downside risk to fight this is $50 per developer and the Application Developer is expected to self-insure for everything remaining." Scary shit. - Patrick Mueller

RIM recalls 1,000 PlayBook tablets due to buggy OS build - http://arstechnica.com/gadgets...
"Although some kind of over-the-air update would be out of the question ..." Out of the question? Why? - Patrick Mueller

The endless debate over semi-colons; - http://functionsource.com/post...
um, what? the "it can happen to the best of us" reference is to a typo which used a comma instead of a semi-colon. And commas are as evil and worthless as semicolons. The lack of a semi-colon (or comma) in the code referenced by the patch would work JUST FINE THANK YOU. - Patrick Mueller

Introducing the new Google Docs app for Android - http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2011...
Weird; can't install this on my rooted nook; not sure why, but maybe it has to do with the camera permission, and the fact that the nook doesn't have a camera. Seen BS like that before. - Patrick Mueller

I think Dion is saying navigator.onLine is useless. Which I agree with. What's worse than having an indicator that might be changing all the time, is people writing code that changes the state of your app when the indicator changes. Instead, hope for the best, prepare for the worst. - Patrick Mueller

YouTube sending repeat infringers to copyright school - http://feeds.arstechnica.com/~r...
Finally. I actually have a strike against me from YouTube for a 30 second movie of a street band, which a church filed a DMCA takedown over. - Patrick Mueller

Right justified text is coming - http://rc3.org/2011...
Good god, what a bunch of bs. As important as "only one space after periods!". - Patrick Mueller

or, the Googlers were dumb, and didn't see the fragmentation that was going to happen, and are now in a bind. - Patrick Mueller

One month later, Honeycomb has just 50 native apps - http://arstechnica.com/gadgets...
Google had Honeycomb tools available a short time before launch? Um, a simulator image which doesn't really run because the simulator is too damn slow isn't a tool. It's an embarassment. THERE ARE NO TOOLS AVAILABLE FOR HONEYCOMB. Woops. - Patrick Mueller

Open source Chameleon project aims to ease porting iOS apps to Mac - http://arstechnica.com/apple...
This should be done for Android as well. If Google kept the Android source at all well organized, it would be easy to scope this work. Unfortunately, they don't. - Patrick Mueller

JavaScript Trie Performance Analysis - http://ejohn.org/blog...
alright, jresig redeemed himself from yesterday's post. And it's not like I figured a trie (or anything else) would OBVIOUSLY be better, but it seemed dumb not to try it. - Patrick Mueller

um. wow. indexOf() searching as the optimal solution? - Patrick Mueller

I also happened to see a space shuttle launch from a commercial air flight (landing in Atlanta, IIRC). Unplanned. Totally awesome. - Patrick Mueller

That does sound hard! (w/r/t title of the blog). Debugging Web Inspector, in practice, was quite a bit easier for me, back in the day. - Patrick Mueller

I love the "upside down search" thang; it always seemed to me like this would have a ton of application - on the downside, will also have terrible performance when misused. - Patrick Mueller

On Performance Innumeracy & False Positives - http://infrequently.org/2011...
Nice. But I don't believe the "16ms" number for yielding to the event loop. Unpossible, first of all :-) But seriously, I thought the number was more like 100ms. Maybe that was the number 10 years ago? For desktop apps? 16ms is an eternity when it comes to latency issues for audio synchronization, but application feedback? Proof, please. - Patrick Mueller

Neat, but why do you need so much hardware? All this can be done with software! Somehow. Right? - Patrick Mueller
