JavaScript is everywhere. So are we all OK with that?

Ioannis

I used to hate JS when I was younger and not as wise; but with time I've come to realise that most of the times it's not the language that's schizo, it's the way it's been employed. JS has been much maligned because in the hands of web designers, it became what happens to a hyperactive 5yo with a bunch of Lego and superglue.

Now, with Crockford's book and a careful re-examination of the language and the approach to using it, I've come to appreciate it, especially when used in the context of Node. Yes it still has it's WTF moments ( https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/talks/wat ) but every language does. All that's required to make it shine is a considered and careful approach.

Re: LMAO!

Yes, as in the absence of any journalistic cred, the failsafe is to go back to the Big Book Of Tech Bashing Phrases.

The Reg got shafted by Apple. Fine. Cry in your pint/milk/meth for a couple of months, froth at the mouth for a couple more, but please, eventually, STFU with your tiresome pimple-faced teenager quips.

Meh. It obviously shows how unnecessary fast access is for the people who have objected, so screw them and their au-pairs and traffic-shape the whole f*ng borough to oblivion and give the rest of us the spare backhaul bandwidth.

Extra Rocket weight?

The extra rockets will add weight, but what if you release them as they finish their burn? They would probably have to fire in pairs so that the rocket doesn't turn into a space catherine wheel.
