mpv can play midis in a zip and a 1G zip can contain >100K midi songs.

I guess computer big.

(not sure if MPD can play midi, probably? DB will get a bunch bigger tho)

Faster than the speeding light she's flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She's got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when Earth shall be as one

imagine the superpower to corrupt any database your information touches

Actually, there is one thing much worse than justified text. Long pages of CENTERED text are shit. A lot of old personal websites used it as a lazy default. Horrible reading, because when one reaches the ene of a line and the eye jumps back to catch the next line, the inconsistent placement of the first word can be a right proper speedbump!

This is why left-aligned text is a good standard. Consistency!!!

ARGH I hate justified text. Varying line length is much less disruptive of reading flow than the random large gaps between words caused by stretching all the lines "neatly" from margin to margin. Big potholes in the text give me a bumpy ride.

283 tests (which run in ~0.08 seconds, because JSDB is just that fast) and none of them caught the multiline strings bug I ran into yesterday.

100% code coverage doesn’t mean 100% correctly functioning code (or even crash-free code).

Mind you, the thing with having 283 tests (now 284) is that once you’ve fixed something, you know that 283 other assumptions you had about your code are still valid.
