Node.js

Javascript has won web scripting. As such — I’m officially giving in to the darkside. Javascript on the client. Javascript on the server. Javascript everywhere.

Why the PC will die

We are at war. In the 3rd quarter of 2014, over 46% of computers in Russia were infected with viruses [1]. The country with the lowest infection rate – 10.5% – is Singapore [1].
