the main problem with web apps is that it just isnt a real program is it. doesnt have proper buttons with a 3D look to them. and you can select all the text??? takes ages to load. doesnt end in ".exe"
lots of problems with web apps

the biggest problem with making a video game in javascript is that it isn't a proper game

you can tell if youve made a proper game if your game is in ELF or COM format and requires either no other files to run, or a bunch of inscrutable files called DATA1.DAT, DATA2.DAT etc. probably WAD is okay. but if your game has a bunch of folders with assets in them that anyone can edit? im sorry while it might be a proper game its not as proper as the games detailed above. i dont make the rules

Please stop using `border: 1px solid red` to debug CSS, use outline. Border will eventually bite you in the ass because border modifies the layout, outline does not. You can end up fixing your layout with border on, only to have it reappear with border off. Always use outline.

"Folders" is a programming language where programs are encoded as hierarchies of folders in the Windows operating system.


I admire the kind of demented mania that can come up with gems like this!

In Jan 2020 GNU Make got support for multiple outputs:

foo.hi foo.o &: foo.hs
ghc -c foo.hs

That is a single rule which builds foo.hi and foo.o. See gnu.org/software/make/manual/m

Remember when you draw an octopus, you generally won’t draw all 8 tentacles, so the octopus can hold something behind her back (e.g. a tiny flag)

That's ok, I'm from the old school who believe that if you'e using sissy constructs like classes or immutability, you are a fancy-pants poseur, not a RealProgrammer™️.
