If you love IEEE 754 (who doesn't? 😅, you're going to love Herbie - a tool that tells you how to rewrite your maths expressions in a way that preserves precision better.

here's info about the difference: new edition only has 2 books, but those are on sale individually: I also have this signed bundle (domestic US shipping only): hope that helps!

are you talking about the older (complete) first edition or the newer (incomplete) second edition?

every reply saying store cold/frozen. there's very few candies in my experience that cannot be eaten properly at normal room temperature. seems like a design flaw.

Has anyone ever removed a reeses cup from its wrapper without leaving a bit of the bottom chocolate behind? I don't see how.

I don't think typescript does any sort of runtime checks, if that's what you're asking for. it compiles itself completely away.

that's a good point... argues in favor of having the choice to pick the orientation of what you see... sometimes each mode is more preferable.

true, good point. btw, for the audience, that `arg(..)` you've shown there is typically called `const(..)` or `constant(..)` in FP, and also goes by "thunk" in other contexts. ;-)

MDN is an open public wiki. If it's wrong (like this one is) it can and should be changed. I've changed many wrong things on MDN.

I mean, of the various built-in types in JS, objects are only one of 8: null undefined boolean string number symbol bigint object (+ subtypes: function, array) as far as that goes, I think objects are more the exception than the rule. ;-)

some video calls show you your own camera feed like you're watching it in the mirror (which feels more natural I think), but others show it as how others would see you if facing you, which feels backwards to me. I wish they all let you flip it to either mode as you see fit.

I know there's gonna be temptation for a bunch of "why don't you just __" replies suggesting all manner of other options. I'm just using EventEmitter2 (in the browser), and just wishing it had this built-in. That's all.

just came across a legit use-case for "distinctUntilChanged(..)" for the first time IME...but I'm not using observables, simply EventEmitter. wishing it had that feature. sort of like a reverse of memoization for event handling: don't send along the event unless there's new data.

for print books, has a "purchase author copies" where you can buy print copies *at cost*, not at retail. but for kindle, there doesn't appear to be any "buy your own kindle book cheaper, 'at cost' (which would be zero'ish)" option, only "buy at full retail". :(
