I don’t agree. I really don’t think anything’s ever a “waste” of time – and especially in my case, I’ve given myself up to two years to really grok this thing, this web development and programming in general and even computing overall…assuming I am logical, and that computers are, too, I’d like to know why my expectations are not met with respect to browser console behavior. It could point to some underlying heretofore unknown assumption of mine – and that would be a great benefit!
I see it as like so-called imaginary/impossible numbers…mathematicians were puzzled by them for literally hundreds of years before they could finally be applied to something in the real world, thus birthing all of modern electronics!
I’ll ask elsewhere, though (that’s the great thing about having an “omnivorous diet” – though conventional wisdom would normally advise that this is a waste, too); thanks!
