Is it possible to mix TypeScript & ClojureScript - Stack Overflow
"The output of ClojureScript is JavaScript which can define React components and arbitrary code. For example if you use Reagent 0.6.0, the output of create-class can be used directly as a component.

But! Mixed mode project build configuration is challenging. One approach is to make the ClojureScript page a library that is required by your host project, in which case you can build and test your ClojureScript component independently, then package up the output file as a dependency for your main project. This has the advantage of being able to quickly iterate on developing the component (using figwheel/devcards)."

Does it make sense to keep different SSIDs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless networks? - Super User
"If you have high quality Wi-Fi client devices, it's best to use the same SSID for both bands so your clients will automatically roam to the band that suits their needs best. If you have low-quality Wi-Fi client devices, you might need to second-guess their band-choice decisions, so you might want to have separate SSIDs."

"Most wireless stacks do not consider these networks to be different to each other, so 2.4GHz has the same weighting as 5GHz. If this isn't important to you, then keeping the SSIDs the same will mean it will pick whichever it sees first."

When should I use git pull --rebase? - Stack Overflow
"when your changes do not deserve a separate branch" (ie, you commit on top of the remote branch)
"Whether it's dangerous or not is the question of whether you are treating local and remote branch as one inseparable thing. Sometimes it's reasonable (when your changes are small, or if you're at the beginning of a robust development, when important changes are brought in by small commits). Sometimes it's not (when you'd normally create another branch, but you were too lazy to do that). But that's a different question."

(But of course note garybernhardt's opinions on 'pull)

What is the difference between the vim snippets plugins? | StackOverflow
Author of mu-template, one of the oldest vim snippets plugins. Note that it is one of the few that allows templates to include other templates, along with allowing the use of "StakeHolders" plugin to enable "tied placeholders"(modifying one named placeholder modifies other placeholders with the same name)

facme: is there any sort of CLI-based snippet generator? like if you called it from acme or a ":!" command: the goal is not to tie it to the editor. OTOH, if you want to visually step through each snippet item(like neosnippet/deoplete), how could you do that with a unix command?
(of course, consider that sam might be able to do something like this with its command-language and structural regular expressions)

Why do C to Z80 compilers produce poor code? - Retrocomputing Stack Exchange
A nice example to use when someone says "but the C model is how computers work deep-down, isn't it?"

"Array indexing is inefficient since there's no reasonable base + offset addressing mode that can use a variable offset, which means the compiler needs to generate code to do the address calculation.

Similarly, it's awkward to save and restore function arguments on the stack because there's no stackpointer + offset addressing mode. The same goes for the local variables of non-leaf functions.

Paucity of truly general purpose registers. Most registers have specific uses which complicates register allocation.

The ISA makes it difficult to mix 8-bit and 16-bit operations."

Best way to power a microcontroller, SMPS vs Linear Regulator - Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange
"[buck converter for 12V adapter feeding MCU] is indeed much more power efficient, especially if there is a big difference in the input voltage vs output voltage, which is your case here. The buck will output almost the same power than it takes at the input (efficiencies are typically ~80-90%), whereas the linear regulator will take as much current as input as it needs to supply (which means that efficiency is Vout/Vin, something like ~27-44% in your case, which is very bad). Yes, this is actually the only reason why linear regulator can be a bad choice: the efficency (and your computation of dissipated heat is fine)."

c++ - Do cereal and Boost Serialization use zero-copy? - Stack Overflow
"That said, don't assume zero-copy will always be faster. memcpy() can be pretty fast, and the rest of your program may dwarf the cost. Meanwhile, zero-copy systems tend to have inconvenient APIs, particularly because of the restrictions on memory allocation. It may be overall a better use of your time to use a traditional serialization system.

The place where zero-copy is most obviously advantageous is when manipulating files, since as I mentioned you can easily mmap() a huge file and only read part of it. Non-zero-copy formats simply can't do that. When it comes to networking, though, the advantages are less clear, since the network communication itself is necessarily O(n)."

What is the frame of reference for orbital speed? - Space Exploration Stack Exchange
"TL;DR: Whatever you want. Conceptually, all frames of reference are equally valid. However, some frames are computationally better than others, depending on context. [...] What is this thing that you call an "inertial frame of reference"? As a supervisor said to me almost 40 years ago, _name one_. [...] There are two challenges with regard to defining a Newtonian frame of reference, the placement of the origin and the placement of the axes. It's important to keep in mind that all frames of reference are equally valid. Using a quasi-inertial solar system barycenter frame to describe the motion of a satellite in low Earth orbit doesn't make any sense. An Earth-centered inertial perspective is a much more sensible perspective."

Mesh data structure used in popular 3D software - Stack Overflow
"One of the reasons the basic indexed mesh structure is so popular over more fancy variants like the half-edge or winged-edge rep is because the indexed mesh maps very directly to the GPU. These packages are often focused on visualizing changes in realtime, such as character deformations on a frame-by-frame basis or sometimes even topology changes. Having a data structure that maps more directly to GPU often means less time spent synchronizing your application-specific data structures with what's on the GPU, so it tends to be the most efficient if your focus is on realtime GPU visualization/interaction in a viewport.
Another reason is because these packages handle such a wide range of mesh cases, including some challenging data like 6-manifold edges, a single polygon with multiple holes, etc. An indexed mesh supports all of these cases.
[...] Sometimes a certain feature like a modeling tool that does a hefty amount of processing (ex: a decimator) might temporarily convert the indexed mesh to a different data structure like a half-edged rep for the sake of that one algorithm, converting back to the indexed mesh when it is done."

How do short URLs services work? - Stack Overflow
"You'll mistakenly hear that they create a hash of the URL in order to generate that unique code for the shortened URL. This is incorrect in most cases, they aren't using a hashing algorithm (where you could potentially have collisions). Most of the popular URL shortening services simply take the ID in the database of the URL and then convert it to either Base 36 [a-z0-9] (case insensitive) or Base 62 (case sensitive)."
