I think this timestamp-as-a-boolean is a good idea if the field is always going to be interpreted as either True or False and nothing more.
If the field in question allows for a 3rd (uncertain) value, then using a timestamp would be extremely confusing.
Would you be so kind as to recommend some resources about caching? I’ve read the basics, but have yet to dive deep on it
I think that the reason is precisely the difficulty. Someone is asking for help with something that (for others) is not that difficult. Some people think “ha, poor fool, I’ve solved this, they’re dumb and shouldn’t be programming”, while others go ahead and actually help the person in good faith without being a dick.
TLDR: Some think programming is a competition and they must be the winners, others realize it’s a community effort where we step on each other’s shoulders to go higher.
