There's a project called "Retroactive" that makes old versions run on newer MacOS, so u can get the classic iTunes back, but it's experimental and not sure if it supports flac. https://github.com/cormiertyshawn895/Retroactive

How about using Retroactive to run iTunes?
Old version of iTunes on an ad I got with a 3rd gen

Fun tip: if you're on mac, there's a great piece of freeware called Retroactive that allows you to brute force install older versions of iTunes. There's some drawbacks, especially with compatibility with newer iOS devices, but I really enjoyed getting a blast of nostalgia when I installed it. Check it out here on Github
I got this iPhone 4s secondhand for 10$, but it seems to be stuck in recovery mode. I tried restoring with finder (MacOS 10.15.7)and it said Error (50) how do i restore it?

BIG SUR user here, how do I get back to, "normal" iTunes ? I have been googling for an hour and a half to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

I’d probably use this to install iTunes for your old library, then it would be a different app and completely separate https://github.com/cormiertyshawn895/Retroactive/
Last.fm scrobler and iPod Classic
1 project | reddit.com/r/ipod | 10 Aug 2021
I had to install iTunes version 188.8.131.52 using a software called Retroactive that enables this installation on Catalina and Big Sur. I also installed Last.fm desktop app version 2.1.36.
WHATWG HTML Standard
SASS, SCSS, TS, TSX, JSX all can't be loaded by browsers natively, so some kind of transpiler is needed. ES Modules only include JS for now, although JSON and WASM modules may be supported soon-ish, and maybe CSS modules at some point (but unclear). I doubt that any of the CSS or JS preprocessors would be natively supported in the browser, ever.
HATEOAS: An Alternative Explaination
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Nov 2021
RDF, JSON-LD and other "structured" formats try to allow clients to gain a certain understanding of what the data means... it's easy to understand that when you look at HTML's semantic tags , which let the browser and other clients know, e.g. what's the "main" section and what's just an "aside"... and structured data provided by RDF, Microdata  and JSON-LD (which were all the rage in the never-realized Web 2.0), which you can embed in the HTML itself in order to provide lots of metadata information to the client about the data in your web page.
Today, these are actually used by, for example, search engines  to display data in a structured manner on searches!
Unfortunately, I don't know of many other "creative" usages of this metadata, but I imagine there could be many... HATEOAS is IMHO still ahead of our time... I do expect that, at some point, it will be really beneficial to have clients that can have a good understanding of the information is shows to users, and one day it will suddently became the next big thing (again).
I Hate Password Rules

Safari did something in that regard in 2018 and proposed a passwordrules attribute with a mini description language:8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Nov 2021
This is something that folks are working on via the `passwordrules` attribute https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/3518
With that and a well-known endpoint for changing passwords (not quite the same thing as what you’re describing; https://w3c.github.io/webappsec-change-password-url/) we are moving in that direction.
The strangely difficult problem of drawing a box around text
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 25 Oct 2021
Unfortunately the HTML spec hasn't yet clearly defined how TextMetrics work, so you can end up with different text alignment and measurements between browsers. See this spec issue: https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/6731
Why don't more people build games for the browser?

Another point: Unlike languages such as Java where there is only a single authority over deprecations in the web dev world there are at least three, which means three times the amount of checking that needs to be done. Plus the few environments that check for deprecations are unlikely to pull from all sources. I am aware that a counterpoint is that there is https://github.com/whatwg/html and it has a well established way of commenting on deprecations and removals. However I doubt that anyone here will be going to regularly read the opened PRs and find solutions prematurely. Most (if not everyone) is going to wait until it actually breaks - which will happen give enough time.

TBF even the spec authors are a bit confused about that attribute: https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/5466
It has complex and non-obvious effects. greggman on the three.js issue wrote a really nice summary on why it shouldn't be the default.
It's really only appropriate for highly latency sensitive applications, like drawing or certain games.
