comment How do browsers handle URLs in HTML5 offline mode?
Thanks @Maru (+1) - I just had that last followup regarding localStorage.getItem(...) and its use with fetching files as well as variables. Any ideas?

Sorry @BartvanIngenSchenau (+1) - I thought it was Maru who left the 2 comments after my first response above. Thanks for your input and my question above applies to you as well!

comment How do browsers handle URLs in HTML5 offline mode?
Thanks again @Maru (+2 for both) - last followup question: does localStorage allow me to store both resources (such as HTML, JS and CSS) as well as app-specific data? For instance could I store myapp.css in the localStorage as well as, say, a numeric variable called fizzBuzz, and then access them from the cache using the same API? For instance, could I retrieve either of them via localStorage.getItem('myapp.css') or via localStorage.getItem('fizzBuzz')? Thanks again!

comment How do browsers handle URLs in HTML5 offline mode?
Thanks @Maru (+1) - I understand everything you say except for one bit. When you say "localStorage doesn't change the url of your resources to local files..." does that mean the user would still go to http://myapp.example.com? Assuming that all of the resources (HTML/JS/CSS) were already cached, would the browser still call up the site via the "normal" (online) url? Thanks again!

Ahhhhh lightbulb. Thanks for the perserverance @Snowman (+1 again). For some reason I was stuck in a mental "client/server" rut and was glazing over your repeated use of "peer-to-peer". Thank you!

So to me, I don't understand the value of these registry services because I don't even see the problem that they claim they are trying to solve! And as for services announcing their presence, this could be accomplished via the client connecting to the server (http://my-data-service) and then the server maintaining an in-memory map of all clients connected to it.

comment Open Source Service Discovery
Thanks again @Snowman (+1) - I appreciate you taking the time to circle back on this. However, I think you're assuming that I understand something very fundamental that I do in fact not understand! You say that the article "...discusses several open source registries, which allow client to connect to the network and announce their presence..." What I'm saying is: the "network" would have to be represented by some server or cluster, but nevertheless a URL (http://my-data-service) to connect to.

comment Open Source Service Discovery
Thanks @Snowman (+1) - I guess I'm just fundamentally not understanding the problem. You say "...I imagine that with OSS anyone can set up a server and there is no central place to know where to look for services." (1) Well, what kind of server would be setup? (2) What services? Can you give a concrete example here? Thanks again!

There is no English idiom "forest for the trees"; it's "forest through the trees" (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/see_the_forest_for_the_trees)

comment Why is build.number an “abuse” of semantic versioning?
Quick followup @Residuum (and BTW +1 for the answer): should version numbers always be manually derived then? If not, what tools could be used in lieu of CI/build number?
