Yant: So it’s only used by edgelords
Pomberg: I don’t know. All the new computer buyers who are non-technical will just like every previous version.
Leandro: Does win10 default to IE or Edge?
Sambrook: Samssh: yeah, I think too. mostly business will be sluggish to convert their active-x whatnot stuff.
Ratterree: Last I heard, they purposely made it difficult to use IE in 10.
Markewich: Unless you are using Enterprise.
Leandro: Maybe that’ll make developers hate them a little less I guess
Sambrook: Interesting in the usage-table is chrome 31. I think that’s the current allowed version in China
Vanbenthuyse: Sambrook, On stat counter page, switch to China.
Leandro: I’m surprised opera’s so high
Leandro: And perversely happy to see IoJ so low ;
Sambrook: And in south korea, people still have to use IE to access banking websites. not sure which version though
Leandro: Typo, dunno how I managed to hit ‘J’ instead of ‘S’
Leandro: Except that I used to play on Isle of Janthir on GW2
Sambrook: Y, chrome 31 is 32% of all browsers in china
Leandro: I vote we banish java first, maybe that’ll get the rest of the rabble in line
Sambrook: Fooey: does java still play a big role these days?
Yant: Sambrook: it’s like glitter
Leandro: On the backend, definitely
Yant: Sambrook: nearly impossible to get rid of
Leandro: See more scala than raw java on newer stuff though
Gansert: I don’t really understand the Java hate.
Sambrook: Samssh: not difficult to hate stuff made by oracle :
Arizola: Samssh: it’s not “hate,” just knowledge that Java is worse than the alternatives e.g.: Scala, Clojure
Burnie: I can’t say that I /like/ writing in it, but it’s not that bad.
Vandermoon: Although some people do hate it
Leandro: I just don’t want to ever have to babysit a JVM again
Gurevich: Sambrook: Java will eventually be replaced by Scheme.
Sambrook: Hameen: don’t think so.
Sambrook: Definitely will be replaced by DrRacket only
Scheidecker: Sambrook: of course it will! Scheme is even in browsers these days!
Sambrook: Hameen: scheme doesn’t even have a turing complete FORMAT. pathetic
Cheesman: Hi, I’m having trouble with Date in firefox. https://gist.github.com/ornerymoose/54d04ef1c5da8c808ffa It returns NaN if the ticket is closed in firefox, but the ticket duration is shown correctly if the ticket is closed in Chrome. Any ideas?
Wenske: Who cares about turing completeness anyway?
Sambrook: Hameen: comp.lang.lisp
Sambrook: But v8 is using a jvm too, very much like the jvm. is v8 less of a h***le to take care of than the jvm?
Niedermeyer: Davidpardy: that certainly doesn’t show your problem. In any case, you probably want to perform computations in the dates as numbers, not strings. And you’re not returning anything from getTimeStamp
Debellis: Sambrook: it’s more that the JVM ecosystem is awful.
Gordley: Hameen: sorry, you are correct. I removed the return portion of the function. Let me edit
Jorden: V8 doesn’t have an ecosystem.
Liedke: Node has, and Node has a reasonable one. Not good, but less worse than most
