    @Alby Ahh... The mobile site is still working, so I got a 404 on the sunset page when viewing on my phone.

    @tomstuart Yeah, I just have an aversion to adding an extra step for something like that. I'm stuck in the 90s.

    @Alby I'm confused - what's the 404 page? Isn't the site still working?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomstuart I wouldn't say I'd decided that, but that's just how it loads. Static site, several JS files.

    A browser plugin that changes all mentions of “World Cup 2014” to “Men’s World Cup 2014”.

    @mathowie I think that’s rugby? But I’m not an expert.

    @mattsheret Looks like editorially just had to close web.archive.org/web/2014051908…, and now the staff have got new jobs.

    @mattsheret Yeah, there are greyer areas, and it doesn’t fit all business types well.

    @tomstuart I’m not sure that’s what I’m after… Just want something that will run [some front end code] only after everything has loaded.

    (Having just muddled through so far, it’d be nice to do it whatever way is currently “proper”. Better late than never.)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Before I get further into swearing at it, is Require.js still what I should be using to make sure everything’s loaded before I run JS?

    I went home by coach to bed, and went not to the office at all, and by keeping myself warm, I broke wind and so came to some ease.

    Actual email from Path trying to convince me to come back. I couldn't have made this shit up if I tried. Comedy gold.
