How is git commit sha1 formed

Ok, I geeked out, and this is probably more information than you need. But it completely answers the question. Sorry.

Locally, I'm at this commit:

commit d6cd1e2bd19e03a81132a23b2025920577f84e37
Author: jnthn <jnthn@jnthn.net>
Date:   Sun Apr 15 16:35:03 2012 +0200

    When I added FIRST/NEXT/LAST, it was idiomatic but not quite so fast. This makes it faster. Another little bit of masak++'s program.

Response to Nodejitsu NPM Trademark
View gist:9242748

I've known people at nodejitsu for years, since before the company even existed. I still consider many of them friends. That said, somebody over there has lost their mind.

Trademarks are an important part of open source. They protect the integrity of the trust that is built by any project. A classic example of why this is the case is Firefox. Suppose that a malware producer takes the Firefox codebase, which is free and open source, packages up their malware with it and then releases it as "Firefox". Then they buy search advertising and suddenly their bad and malicious version of Firefox is the first result on search engines across the web. This is clearly a bad thing for Firefox and open source everywhere, but what can Mozilla do to protect their community of users?

They can't enforce a software license since the use is permitted under the Mozilla Public License. They can, however, enforce on these hypothetical bad actors using their trademark on the word "Fi

Parens And Performance

Years ago, some smart folks that worked on JS engines realized that not all JS that's loaded into a page/app initially is needed right away. They implemented JIT to optimize this situation.

JIT means Just-In-Time, which means essentially that the engine can defer processing (parsing, compiling) certain parts of a JS program until a later time, for example when the function in question is actually needed. This deferral means the engine is freer to spend the important cycles right now on the code that's going to run right now. This is a really good thing for JS performance.

Some time later, some JS engine devs realized that they needed to get some hints from the code as to which functions would run right away, and which ones wouldn't. In technical speak, these hints are called heuristics.

So they realized that one very common pattern for knowing that a function was going to run right away is if the first character before the function keyword was a (, because that usually m

  • At top left, there is the total number of points of the iteration.
  • On the top of the point of the graph representing the current day, there is the number of points left in the iteration.
