In ancient times, when youtube was born, we didn’t have VIDEO tag. We used to have Flash. To play video on the website, we had to convert it to weird Flash video format, leave mp4 for safety and hope that everything will work fine. Later on, when HTML5 became a industry standard, our live become some much easier.
In the theory VIDEO tag solves all out issues. When browser can handle webm (Chrome family) we play webm.
From time to time we are working on small campaigns, where competition starts at given time. Because in Australia we have “so many” timezones, it’s critical to set things correctly according to the time zone.
Recently I was working on a project, when I had super boring address form. I figure out that we need to help poor users fill boring forms, so made a little code snippet / function which gets postcode and returns state. Postcode ranges were taken from
, so blame them if something isn’t working as expected.
In the ancient times, when I was coding mostly in Pascal – size did matter. People were using RAR to shave couple kilobytes from archives, and having 2mb executable was better then having 4mb executable file. In that beautiful time we used UPX – I wasn’t aware that this project is still alive, and works nicely with binaries create bo go lang.
