I always try to be clear about this. What I did to get a job and what you need to do are worlds apart! I barely knew HTML, CSS, & jQuery when I started. Can't even claim I knew JS (and it was a couple years before I knew the difference). The bar to entry gets higher every year.

the explanation that has always made the most sense to me is that when you're displaying days and years, you can just display the number directly, but when you're displaying month you're (sometimes) using a lookup table, where 0-indexing is useful

Why is January represented by 0 in JavaScript and not by 1? JavaScript copied Java here. But why did Java do it? Apparently it picked it up from C.

1/ Common mistake when writing blog posts: Writing down a few hasty sentences. Ask yourself per sentence: – Does this sentence leave too much unsaid/implied? – Is this sentence too abstract? Should I provide an example?

Interesting things are happening with — possibly the only Linux-based OS with a primary focus on end-user experience. Touch pad has historically only really worked well on macOS (not even Windows.) Seeing this WIP by José is exciting!

Is there a way to link to an Amazon product so that it always jumps to the local store (.com in USA, etc.)?

Unix shell: sed works well for changing text, but not for extracting bits of text. Alternative (prints complete match = group 0): grep --extended-regexp --only-matching 'src="[^"]+"'

New post! Decentralized architecture for social networks, and the social implications of network design. I'm reading lots about SSB, Cabal, Mastodon, Keybase, etc, but resources are scattered and I wanted to gather some comparative analysis
