Boldewyn

Boldewyn is the name of the donkey in German fables (at least, the ones from Goethe). Despite its bad name, a donkey is an animal with its own head and quite a portion of wit.

As someone pointed out once, if you say to a horse to jump down that abyss, it would happily do so, whereas the donkey would give you a kick where you deserve it to.

And someone else pointed out, that laziness is a core requirement for a good developer...

comment Content Missing - Javascript with CDATA
"Suddenly stopping to work" usually means, that something else is involved. Was there a browser update in the corporate intranet? A change in the web server? CloudFlare or another CDN put in front? Any change in the delivery between the HTML on disk and the visitor?

comment How to list all unchanged (tracked) files?
I just deleted my git ls-files --no-modified answer. As you pointed out correctly, the --no-modified switch does in fact nothing. Sorry!

comment jquery parent sibling usage
This is not XHTML, this is some other XML thing. In XML, class has no special meaning. This also means, that jQuery won't find elements by their class.

comment Order branches in `git branch --all` by branch name
Ha! basename! That's such a cool idea! I had to tweak it a bit, though: git branch --all --verbose | sed 's/^[ *] //' | while read line; do echo $(basename $(echo $line | awk '{ print $1 }')) $line; done | sort | cut -d' ' -f2-. Basically, remove --color, since green entries will then be found before red ones, and sed 's/^[ *] //' to remove the leading mark for the active branch.

comment External URL in Nav menu not working
Not so complicated! It's the getHash function, that is applied to all nav points. In the case of an URL without # it just returns the empty string == the current page's URL. handleClick() just needs to check, if link.href starts with a hash.

comment External URL in Nav menu not working
Before rushing to dive into the code, fire up your browser's developer tools and take a look at that element there. target there? href there and unchanged? Any event handlers registered?

Any JavaScript, that'd remove the target attribute?

comment Is it socially/culturally acceptable for Indian/Sri Lankan people to visit the Oktoberfest?
Don't take the similarity too far, though. The Oktoberfest is a venue exclusively to spend leisure time. It completely lacks any deeper foundation. It's best to not compare the two events themselves at all. My answer is aimed at the initial experience of a traveler at one of those two local events. That experience will be similar for you as it is for Europeans that visit the Esala Perahara.

That's interesting! I've played a bit with it, but haven't come up with a decent solution. However, it looks promising.
