00:01:49  <Emulous>Yeah--at least the null/array issue is a pretty frequent need not to have to always reinvent or introduce implementation-detail-leaking and concentration-distracting ugliness (however small)
00:02:01  <ljharb>Emulous: the better approach is the current Builtins.typeof proposal imo
00:02:20  <ljharb>basically Symbol.toStringTag, but using brand-checking functions instead of strings (how it should have worked initially)
00:03:49  <Emulous>oh, gret--that'd do the trick, thanks, didn't know about that!
00:03:53  <Emulous>great
00:04:26  <ljharb>Emulous: in the meantime, making a wrapper function that calls `Object.prototype.toString.call(x).slice(8, -1)`, iirc, will give you pretty much what you want
00:06:44  <Emulous>yes, sure, thanks--I've worked with that...Hope the proposal or something like it may make it...

18:04:20  <cloudshu>so how serious are we about commonwealth spelling
18:04:38  <cloudshu>i just realized that while we spell 'behaviour' we also spell 'initialization' the american way

19:53:03  <jmdyck>the spec used to spell it with an 's'
20:30:30  <bterlson>jmdyck: cloudshu: I seem to recall changing initialization
20:30:38  <bterlson>because of some API name
20:31:20  <bterlson>APIs should be the American way so there's a bit of a disconnect when the same word is used as an API name and prose
20:32:46  * howdoiquit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
20:40:53  <Domenic>We used to have this disconnect in HTML. Then we switched everything to en-US. It was a good decision.
20:41:03  <bterlson>Domenic: I agree
20:41:21  <bterlson>I disagree with many aspects of the ISO metaspec as you know :-P
21:04:32  * srl295joined
21:10:18  <annevk>The API argument always felt rather bogus; sure, you can distinguish color and colour, but background is the same in both
