Now, when I said that I can't "wrap my head around" using TypeScript, I'm basically saying that I don't know why I would want to use VB.NET instead of C#, when I'm already an expert at C#. Or worse, why I would write something in VB, transpile it into C#, and then evaluate it against the runtime.

But I'm not going to write all my front-end code in TypeScript in case I'll ever have to.
Who the hell has three different return types for a single function!?
Do you really have to ask me that? Who do you think would do something so diabolical?
Even you know better than that!
Despite your complete lack of code sanitation I actually hold you in pretty high regard Don't get any ideas though, I'll still prick you with my pitchfork.
That sounded better in my head

and frankly I have no idea why someone wrote it in typescript.
Am writing it. Trying to do B+ trees. And once i get them working for in-memory i have to make them diskable, and you can't just use serialization. You have to keep an open file pointer and seek periodically and read/write the blocks you need. It's that kind of file I/O, so i'm still a ways off. I hope to have the B+ tree at least solidly in progress by tonight but we'll see.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
