    I just watched the FOSDEM'19 talk about SOLID and found it very interesting. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts on this topic.https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/solid_web_decentralization/ Direct link to the video: https://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/fosdem-video/2019/Janson/solid_web_decentralization.webm

    Okay guys, I am sick of being told I'm "bright" or "clever" or "smart"... just before I am turned down for a job or, in the case of what happened to me two days ago, fired. I suspect that the kind of people who don't like me are the same kind of people who are unwilling to explain to my face why they don't like me. Come to think of it, I guess that's just how human culture typically works? But it hurts at lot. So when I was "laid off" (their words, but I was definitely fired), I was completely shocked. They briefly explained why, but it went over my head and I immediately forgot the words in the sentences. Something about cultural differences? About how the work environment is "chaotic" and my organized, perfectionist style was not acceptable? I sent an email yesterday morning at 3AM saying "So, respectfully, may I have the explanation repeated?" but as of yet, no response. One thing I did vaguely remember was what the company's figurehead-leader-of-the-Canadian-subsidiary (not involved in the decision) said something like "we're looking for people that put in 85% effort, and people that give 110% don't really fit in." Hmm, that's probably not exactly how it was worded, but all I can remember with certainty is the numbers 85% (describing a typical/ideal employee) and 110% (me). Oh well, theoretically that should mean I can look for developer tools jobs to my heart's content... but for the moment I'm too exhausted, owing to a sudden difficulty sleeping.

    @David Piepgrass Sorry to hear about that. I think I've been on both sides of this sort of thing. Sometimes it's hard to articulate exactly why it's not meshing with a particular personality and you just gotta make a decision and move forward even if you can't 100% justify it. Would you say you approach your professional work with the attitude that you're there to take the things that are important to your employer/boss and make them important to you even if it isn't clear why they're important to your employer?

    “Syntax highlighting” is an unfortunate misnomer, since pattern matching is considerably weaker than syntactic analysis. It would be more accurate to call it “unreliable keyword, string, and comment recognition”.

    Really cool paper, @Felix Kohlgrüber. Worth posting to #general considering the recent conversations here on structured editing. The authors are pointing out a new trade-off between conventional and structured editors that I hadn't seen before.

    but I think we need: - introductions - feedback for/on your project - discussion of foc/fop - may need to be split into techie and non-techie focused? - off-topic - not allowed to mention programming!!
