Technically, I’m not tweeting. I’m posting a note to my own website, and then syndicating a copy to Twitter. So my Twitter account is a bot, in a way.

Each shadow photon encounters much the same sort of barrier as its tangible counterpart does, a barrier consisting of only a tiny proportion of all the shadow atoms that are present.

Ballard’s short story “The Enormous Space” is very much a story of our time…

They’re both asynchronous actions—using cache and using fetch—and the waitUntil ensures that when one of them is done, the other still carries on. It doesn’t mean that one waits until the other is done.

Replying to

The return part still happens first though. The waitUntil ensures that the service worker doesn’t “hang up” while you’re getting the fresh version from the network, but while that’s happening, the user has been served the cached file.

It’s another clear night tonight and the @Space_Station will pass overhead at 7:42pm.

Look to the skies, my friends!

I very much hope that Safari devs will be reasonable and not go ahead with the drastic hobbling of service workers that they’re planning:

A progressive web app means HTTPS+service worker+manifest. It does not mean “added to home screen”.

I’m trying to understand what the expiration time was for service workers across the board before this change to 7 days. Was it 30 days? 90? Indefinite?

Replying to

Hey John, quick question: what was the time period for deregistering service workers (and emptying caches) before this change to 7 days?

(I have it in the back of my mind it was something like 30 days without engagement—is that right?)

Yes, I linked to that in my post (at the end).
