    [quote user="joe.edwards"]You seem to be talking about the opposite storage method, which as you quoted earlier, I already said would become incomplete without some kind of trigger to update stale data.[/quote] Yes, I had my wires crossed, apologies!

    [quote user="pkmnfrk"]I wonder why anyone thinks this is any different from shitty ios apps that suck up battery life while doing nothing[/quote] It's not just iOS. The DrawSomething app on Android eats through my battery faster than a starving rat. It doesn't really need to run the full app in the background, but it seems to :-/

    [quote user="joe.edwards"] I do find this hard to believe, considering the total number of events a page fires off in normal use. You could see dozens of events a second just from waving your mouse around; eg mouseover, mousemove, mouseout. If it had this much overhead, I would expect these sites to perform like mud, and I really ...

  • Re: Lack of Evidence

    [quote user="joe.edwards"]All events that are in {possible-events} that aren't in {happened-events} must be in {didn't-happen-events}. It doesn't matter when they were added, if they're not in {happened-events} then they didn't happen. (Here I'm working on the implicit assumption that the kind of events in ...

  • Re: Lack of Evidence

    [quote user="joe.edwards"] I assume new events didn't happen because they didn't exist, so they couldn't have happened. My quoting fail meant to capture my tags about triggers, but I screwed that up. [/quote]  What I'm getting at though is that you'll have to track when you added the new events, in order to ...

    [quote user="joe.edwards"][quote user="ASheridan"] [quote user="joe.edwards"]Then the list of what did happen remains correct (and can still be used to figure out what did not happen), while the list of what did not happen is retroactively incomplete.[/quote]  Not really. Imagine in the old data there are ...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"] I blame StackOverflow for that. Problem? jQuery is the answer! No matter what the problem is! Desktop app? Well embed a Webkit so you can run jQuery! Database? Well write a quick function that can call out to jQuery! If you can't do it in jQuery it can't be done! At least they tried to make a ...

    [quote user="toon"]snoofleload [/quote] I like this amount. Roughly what would it equate to in other terms?
