comment How to write comments to explain the “why” behind the callback function when the function and parameter names are insufficient for that?
Here's a wild idea: Write it out in words, instead of weird shorthand syntaxes.

comment How should I architect a personal schedule manager that runs 24/7?
I don't have time to offer a complete answer, but it seems like you want good concurrency. Erlang (website, wikipedia) was designed to run things like this, so give it a look over.

comment Documenting Function That Takes Random Parameters?
I'd argue that such a function needs to re-thought of - either split into several ones if each "overload" is a bit different, or choose an argument pattern and stick with it

comment Performance: recursion vs. iteration in Javascript
@mike The definition of "premature" is "mature or ripe before the proper time." If you know that recursively doing something will cause a stackoverflow, then it's not premature. However, if you assume on a whim (without any actual data), then it's premature.

comment Can we guarantee a program will never go wrong?
It's a very interesting thought. On a high-level, you can write provable programs - that is what structured programming is truly about. On a lower level, there was the notion of a certifying compiler, CompCert being the successful one. However, when you add 3rd party dependencies, even an operating system, you can get to a layer of unexpected behaviour.

@shareef Yeah, page 11 gives reasons why people turn off js, and not why you should be using a library...
