Much worse, I find too much documentation and help files are like this in places.

Wherever you find this, though, it's just bad practice. It certainly doesn't obviate the need for and utility of good in-line documentation (code comments).

I find that Jupyter Lab takes this to a new extreme that I'm ambivalent about, functionally implementing a meme of mine from the 1980s (though we didn't call them memes then not use graphics) which was a parody of many similar memes of the day and went: The bad programmer writes in C and documents in English, the good programmer writes in English and documents in C

The funny thing about this, from a mechanical engineer's perspective (yours truly) is that the starter is an electrical device ;-). As is the fuel pump which is more likely to be at fault than bad gasoline. The moral of the story: It's always the Electrical guys fault.

Even the IT guy sort of agrees, as he'd actually say, let's just factory reset the firmware (which is as electronic - a subset of electrical, as things come really).

Someone needs to make a pedantic version of that floor mat that says:

"There's no place like 127.0.0.0/8"

And also various "calculator words" versions of the floor mat:

"There's no place like 127.1.33.7"

Fun fact: Because port numbers are reserved per IP address in OS routing tables, you can bind virtually unlimited instances of a server on localhost IPs to the same port number as long as you are careful not to bind to all IPs. Only works on IPv4 but is an extremely useful feature. IPv6 only has one reserved localhost IP, which is extremely limiting. I guess IANA/IETF didn't want to reserve a full /64 for localhost but also didn't want to fix the limited port numbers issue in TCP either. So we get the worst of both worlds in pure IPv6. :( At least IPv4 to IPv6 bridging works fine.

How is “()()” not a palindrome though? It’s read the same forwards and backwards, which is the definition of a palindrome 🤔🤨

Result not palindrome

You trumped us there with a brilliant demonstration. Avoiding the trap some of us fell into of confusing palindrome with symmetric (same in a mirror). Some strings are both of course, like "MAAM" but not palindromes like "POP" which are not mirror symmetric at all and strings like "dib" which are mirror symmetric but not a palindrome!

So, kudos for your insight and clever demonstration.

I (fortunately?) don't mess with Node. I'm working with a Python system (that is pretty much still in development... so updating that system can be fine or a way to continue driving the project behind budget).

With the poorly trained drivers on the road today, you never know. A few years ago, I was exiting a highway onto a one way street using the single lane off ramp. Some older lady was coming right at me determined to get onto the highway I was leaving. I honked, slammed on my brakes, and she pulled off to the side and stopped. I passed her and continued on. As I looked into my rear view mirror, I noticed that she then proceeded onward and...actually entered the highway! She ended up going the wrong way on a highway.

Just to clarify, she had to: Travel almost 3/4 of a mile on a one way street with "Wrong Way" signs posted the whole way, ignore someone honking at her who was getting off the highway, come to a complete stop, and then proceed into oncoming traffic moving in her direction at 65 mph.

Always assume someone somewhere is going the wrong way on a one way street because it happens.

Dang.

First, I'm glad you're ok. Second, that determination (or stupidity) is amazing.
