comment Iterate over ES6 Set/Map in Coffeescript (with `of` operator)
Thanks @Ashwin -- another option is in the comments to the question (s.forEach (x) -> ...). I will post if I see anything that illuminates further.

comment Iterate over ES6 Set/Map in Coffeescript (with `of` operator)
I think you have misread the question. What needs to work, using your example, would be eat food for food in new Set(['toast', 'cheese', 'wine']), which fails because CoffeeScript converts that to a for loop. ES6 Sets have neither a length property nor indexes.

comment Timing attacks: When the time to complete two different tasks are statistically indistinguishable
I have implemented the test, but am unsure how to interpret the results (I've only vague notions based on experimenting with it), so I added a related question: stats.stackexchange.com/questions/131304 :)

comment Did the lead developer of the HPV vaccine come out against it?
@TylerH: Why do you say that? See e.g. Wikipedia - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Harper - "she was the principal investigator of the clinical trials of Gardasil and Cervarix, vaccines against HPV"

comment Timing attacks: When the time to complete two different tasks are statistically indistinguishable
@means-to-meaning - There are no strong practical objections to processing every request as if the key were correct. That is the first form of defence, and widely implemented, but there may be things happening (compiler/CPU optimizations) that work against the intentions of the developer - and we would like to reveal those. What do you man by "always leak information"?
