Week 27 - 2019
The weeknote for 7/1 - 7/7. You can edit this page (on github) if you find any error.
- Continued to investigate the last part of the above work. In the above
branch I encountered the strange error which says
unique symbolis not assignable to
number | unique symbol. It's strange because unique symbol is assinable to
number | unique symbolif these unique symbols are the same. They must be the same but when I have a look at
deno types, surprizingly they are different. There were two namespaces
io. They both have
EOF: unique symbolsdeclarations. That's very strange because in the source code, it's declared only once. But in type declaration file, it splits into 2 different declarations, and they conflicts with each other. I still cannot explain what causes this situation, but maybe ts_library_builder handles the declaration files in a slightly wrong strategy.
- Anyway we merged the above PR with making
EOF: nullfor now. That's a little unfortunate, but I believe that works.
- Continued to investigate the last part of the above work. In the above branch I encountered the strange error which says
- Kat Marchan quit npm this week. I think this affects npm cli in future. In the middle of the week, she's announced she's working on a new project of package manager, which is a new frontend of entropic registry. The new project will be written in rust. Before her quit, most leading engineers of npm had quit already. I highly doubt their ability to continue developing npm cli further. Especially to develop tink in this situation looks difficult.
- Japan's biggest convenience store chain 7&i Holdings released a new payment service, full of exploitable vulnerabilities, this week, and they immediately lost a half million dollars. Payment service, full of vulnerabilities 🙈 They're still struggling to solve the issues.
- I've seen a movie called Snowpiercer in netflix. This is a sci-fi movie. This movie depicts the rebelion of the people who are oppressed in a dystopia. The world is in a very unnatural situation. The movie looked sometimes very inconsistent and impossible, but I still liked this movie very much because the the storyline is very dramatic and every part seems connected to another part very well even in such ridiculous situations. Such spontaneous emergence of dramaticity from the combination of ridiculousness reminded me the drawings of Picaso.
