ServiceWorker and Progressive Networking
"I’ve been toying with ServiceWorker for a while. The single most complicated issue when it comes to ServiceWorker has been dealing with caching in a straightforward way. In my previous article – an introduction to ServiceWorker – I wrote about a few different strategies: hitting the network first, hitting the cache first, and hitting the cache but going to the network nevertheless to get “eventually fresh” content. The last one I mentioned was hitting the cache, going to the network nevertheless, and somehow using postMessage to relay updates back to web pages showing stale content. In this article, we’ll explore how to communicate from a ServiceWorker to a web page and back."

Hello, Tamago Kake Gohan, Your Time Has Come
"Tamago gohan—rice mixed with a raw egg—was one of the very first recipes I learned, and it's Japanese comfort food at its simplest. All it takes is a bowl of rice and an egg to break into it, perhaps seasoned with a little bit of soy sauce, salt, and MSG. Whip up the rice with chopsticks and the egg will turn pale yellow and foamy, holding the rice in a light, frothy suspension."
