It reminds me a lot of WPF development in that you designed components with state (data context) and the component knew how to render.

Does Valve cash out the bitcoins immediately because of it's volatile nature, or is Valve large enough (or bitcoin purchases small enough) that they can safely bear the changes?

Apparently they're using BitPay, so presumably they don't get any actual bitcoins.

Arguably sites have been increasing in size for one simple reason: It directly results in increased sales.

Everything is sales.

If cleaner, 'purer' sites made more money you bet the average web page would be 10kb.

It's all about what translates to more sales. As such, you won't ever see a return to more traditional websites. Look at Amazon with it's virtual dress models, heavy as hell, but they most certainly land more sales.


Quite opposite. It is proved that longer page loading time is less conversion.

i miss This Developer's Life. :(

I wonder what happened to Rob Conery and Scott Hanselman that they decided to end it.

Are you a bot?

-----


A bot that recognizes approximately-quoted pop culture references and provides their source would be a hell of a bot.

-----


Oh boy... it's actually not that hard to imagine a future of spambot's running on neural networks. :/

-----


And the same networks could fuel spam filters, eventually leading to: https://xkcd.com/810/.

-----


God damn it, I just love XKCD.

-----


Hmm... A new idea for me, which probably will make someone here on HN rich:

Helpful bots that monitors your communication and suggests cultural jokes, to impress people?

-----


Oh man, helper apps like that are going to make kids online even more difficult to detect and avoid.

-----


Looking through their other posts, I don't think so.

You know what I would really enjoy? Being able to sign into your Github account and sync your preferences and packages to the cloud. Then if I sign in on a different computer, all my hotkeys, packages and themes are copied over seamlessly.

As a crappy workaround I have this: https://github.com/sergiotapia/atom-meteor-packages

But still, I would like this to be a core integration.

I've since switched to RubyMine and WebStorm because I just want something that meshes together for me, I don't want 'javascript fatigue' in my dev tools as well. RubyMine's built in visual studio-like debugger is killer.

-----


Agreed that this should be built in. I've been using https://github.com/atom-community/sync-settings which stores everything in a gist and has worked out reasonably well so far. The pain points are that you have to manually set it up the first time with the gist id and (optional) private api key, and backups have to be triggered manually.

-----


do you find when you sync-settings:Restore onto a new box, the atom app completely freezes up as it tries to suddenly download all the packages?

-----


You can use `apm stars --install` for the package syncing part of this. It's reasonably close to what you're looking for.

-----


For me, the Visual Studio-like debugger is killer in theory, but in practice, it hangs a lot and I have to shut down and restart RubyMine.

-----


That sucks, it works flawlessly for me on my El Capitan and RubyMine 2016.1

-----


Do you have a good resource for learning the debugger in RubyMine? I'm still using mostly puts and pry for debugging, but it sounds like the RM debugger could be a win.

This is a video by Dennis Ulshakov, the maintainer. I haven't watched this in its entirety but it's only 20 mins.

  cd ~/.emacs.d
  git init
  git add .
  git commit -m "My emacs config"
  git remote add origin http://github.com/myname/myemacsd
  git remote -v
  git push origin master
Just sayin' is all ...

-----


That's not web scale /s

That being said, because I use a different OS every week, I have found this to not work as well as I'd like because I often forget to commit/push after a change.

Since I'm always committing/pushing, it seems to me like keeping ~/.emacs.d in Dropbox is the better solution.

-----


I like to use:

    git push -u origin master
So then the next time all I need to do is:

    git push

-----


That depends on your git.push settings. I have it set to current, which means `git push` pushes the current branch to only an origin branch of the same name.

-----


Maybe auto-discovery for `.atom`-named project?

-----


You can always try to make a Pull Request at see what it comes out!

I feel like the rule of three in comedy applies universally.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_three_(writing)

-----


What are the previous two instances?

The left-pad debacle was ages ago in Internet time. Comedy is partially rule of three, part timing.

-----


But honestly, who cares?

-----


Wow, this is eerie for me! I literally just sat down on my computer to create an account to play on Nostalrius and see this on HackerNews.

Talk about synchronicity!

Here's a neat info graphic of what Nostalrius had achieved (found on /r/wow): http://i.imgur.com/jxtOQlu.jpg

Also available on Opera Developer Edition (what I use as my primary browser these days). It's pretty sweet!
