Found myself looking up the MySQL IF Syntax.
Was chatting with Key about Angry Orange. I don’t think orange makes anyone angry.
Bumped into this old article by Joel Spolsky: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!).
Today I read about IDN homograph attacks. Basically it’s where Unicode characters that look like ASCII characters are put into a link so the link seems to go to a genuine/trusted site. In related news I found a list of confusable characters via stackoverflow. Also found a list of confusable symbols.
Today I learned about Punycode, which is a system for reversibly encoding Unicode in ASCII.
