My ’02 WRX started-up with a wandering (and lean) idle this morning. Thankfully, all it took was a $6 gasket and 20-minutes of pulling, cleaning, and re-installing the IACV. So far, it seems to have worked. See the following for detailed instructions:
Amazingly simple, but this is a really exciting project with massive hackability potential! Here’s a quick example from the project page:
var serial = (document.getElementById("seriality")).Seriality();
<object type="application/Seriality" id="seriality" width="0" height="0"></object>
Here’s a PDF Version as well (which is a bit easier to read, IMO.)
The value-add here is the ability to pass a function reference for background processing rather than manually handling all the overhead of task queue setup. Not that it was hard… but just pointing at a function is much easier.
There’s some interesting stuff in here. Lots of nice shortcuts if you’re coming from C++. Given the choice, I think I’d rather see more effort put into Unladen Swallow than having the development community rewrite core libraries for this new language.
Go also still needs a killer app. Perhaps an alternative to Java for Android apps??
