๐Ÿถ Freeman Just want to share my thoughts here. I've worked with react for the last 5 years. However I've started seeing a trend and it's for a good reason that people incl me realise the trade offs of reactivifying everything. Esp for a blog, a non SPA server rendered page works with less moving parts, or a html only SSG (i use zola). You could mount extra reactivity with Web Components (e.g remount). PS i still use next.js, not trying ti dismiss it :)
๐Ÿงต Evan You can React-ify static sites too! I'm pretty sure that's what Gatsby is. it's way cheaper (usually even free) to run a blog using a static site hosted on Netlify. I wish I could find an alternative to Netlify, because I feel like they're getting too big, but that's what seems to work for now.

โ˜๏ธ Jean-David Moisan When I write a message, how come I get the error "Use spaces or shorter words". What's the condition to trigger that message? I'm way below the character limit.
๐Ÿงต Evan Not sure why the limitation is in place (maybe something related to spam) but if there are a few words with slashes in between, I started using commas+spaces instead, and that fixed it for me. It seems to count punctuation as a part of one single large word.

Chris Silverman Sounds silly, but I don't understand how the "replies" function works at all. I'll see a thread with something like "8 replies", and when I click it, I expect the replies to drop down under it in a clear hiearchy. They don't seem to do that, and I don't see the number of replies that the link indicates.
๐Ÿงต Evan It looks like the figure of replies comes from a count of all replies to a given post/reply, then all replies to its replies, and so on. So OP -> reply 1 -> reply to reply 1 = 3 replies to OP's post, even though the third reply is actually not to the OP's post itself.

๐ŸŒŠ Zero Two neat. What resource do u recommend learning C# ?
๐Ÿงต Evan I've just been relying on Microsoft documentation and other examples I find around the 'net. Do be aware of the differences between .NET Framework (old, Windows-only) and .NET Core (open-source, all platforms) and you can use most things between the two. AFAIK all the language features are the same, but some of the built-in APIs can be totally different, so be sure to look specifically for .NET Core in that case. They're getting rid of .NET Framework soon.

๐Ÿฆ„ Chip Uni Lots of us here are programmers. What's your favorite programming language, and why?
๐Ÿงต Evan I love JS and TypeScript, be it through Node.JS, Deno, or the browser, because I've never not been able to get something done with it. My second favorite would be C#.NET Core, for my current jobs. Anyone who wants something like Java without all the crust, take a look at C# with .NET Core. It's got a lot of refreshing features and built-in async, await, Promises (Tasks) just like JS, far easier to setup a project, and doesn't necessarily need a heavy weight IDE.

๐Ÿฆ„ Chip Uni Unfortunately, some groups manipulate talk about coronavirus, especially to try to open up. So I'm not waiting until the news filters through to me.
๐Ÿงต Evan taking that into account, I do take everything with a grain of salt, but I suppose I'm talking more about places I already pay attention to i.e. HN will have the most important news i.e. "a vaccine/treatment is out!" hit the front page fairly quickly

๐Ÿฆ„ Chip Uni Hey, subreply folk -- what resources do you use most to keep up with coronavirus information?
๐Ÿงต Evan opinion which does not answer your question: I hear people talk about it and otherwise I'm avoiding the topic while taking the usual safety precautions; being eaten up with concern over a global thing is counter-productive to me; when something important comes out about it everyone will know so it's no use keeping up with it
