Totally agree.
 
A discussion of async and sync programming, which coexist frequently in many modern environments.  And coexist painfully.  It's really pretty incredibly awful, I don't know how we put up with it at all.

An aside, doctest.js (http://doctestjs.org/) has something like the "await" feature he talks about, as it converts your doctest stanzas into individual chunks of code with CSP-style chaining, and lets you wait in between those stanzas while the code looks relatively linear.  It's far more naive than a real language feature, but even if it's kind of dumb it sure is nice.  Best feature in doctest.js (the best testing framework that no one uses!)

Is it just me that reads their Twitter timeline from bottom to top, i.e. old to new?

I'm yet to find an Android app that reliably maintains your position in the timeline when loading newer items. Too frequently, I get jumped to the top losing my current context.

Also, Twitter (and Twidere) slide out unnecessary navigation when scrolling from new to old, which means that navigation is in the way and taking up screen space most of the time for me.

But maybe it's just me ... wouldn't be the first time ;).

It's not just you... I did read an explanation at some point that Twitter sort of actively tries to discourage this usage pattern, since they don't want you to feel the pressure of too many unread message. Instead, they want you to live in the now and only read the current stuff.

Seems plausible enough to me, but it sure is a pain to read back two days of Twitter timeline. (I only use the web client anymore, since having it on my phone was too distracting/time-consuming...)

Pritunl Enterprise VPN Server, http://pritunl.com/

Really easy to set up although I did have to manually patch the CherryPy WSGI server module (https://github.com/pritunl/pritunl/issues/16).

Pritunl has a great tutorial. Worked well from my Nexus 4 Android device and works equally well from iOS too according to +Tom Wardill.

The new "share" item on Chrome's menu with the short-cut icon for the most recent choice (Pocket, in my case) is so convenient. Every app should copy this idea.

I've never had a problem with fluff in the headphone socket until I had a Nexus 4. Bizarre. Perhaps I just generate more fluff these days ;)

git deliver, https://github.com/arnoo/git-deliver, looks like a useful tool for handling deployment of relatively simple projects. #twt

Got bored of waiting for Google so flashed Android L to my Nexus 4. Really nice and noticeably faster!

+Dirkjan Ochtman yes, probably. Especially now I've stopped poking it to see the pretty animations ;).

St. Petersburg's Nevsky Prospect is stunning at night. Today we get to see things properly in daylight for the first time.

Phew! Thanks to a replacement display + digitiser bought from ebay, a couple of YouTube videos, a steady hand and a bit of patience, I now have a working Nexus 4 again :)

MultiROM is great, thanks for the top.

Ubuntu Touch is not bad either. It's considerably slower than running Android but, hey, it's still a dev release. It feels like there's a lot of polishing to do before it's really ready for use.

I do like the idea of using all the edges to control the device, and dedicating the screen to the actual app.

However, I'm not sure about the Dash-style home screen. It seems a bit simplistic somehow. Maybe it makes more sense once you have some content.

Now, leave me alone so I can get more important things done! 😉
