I've never heard that expression in either of those forms

They’re both “right”, people with manors have manners, so I’m not sure but think that might dq it as an eggcorn.

> Also does bash run on windows outside of WSL?

Git Bash is pretty ubiquitous on developer machines in my experience.

"pretty ubiquitous" is what I'm referring to here. OP seemed to imply that because the other options have "non-zero friction" that targeting bash has zero friction. But you have to make sure bash is there, and if it's not, you have to install a toolchain that may include an entire operating system.

I guess I just don't understand how having the user install git bash or WSL any different from having them install Python or JVM?

Nice! I've wanted to build something like this for a long time. It requires good faith argument construction from both parties, but it's useful to make the possibility available when you do find the small segment of people who can do that.

I felt the same, but to be fair to the author, the information was probably buried in the back of their mind too - when you've had a set up like this for years, many of its details become invisible to yourself, part of "obvious" background information that your mind doesn't bother bringing to the forefront.

Sure, but the title has you thinking "Why would this external weather event effect my in-home wifi?" when the answer is "because I have a weird thing outside of my house that makes the wifi work". I feel used.

How do you work with a Zotero collection on Android?

Zulip doesn't look pretty, but it does a lot of things right. I don't get the appeal of Discord though, and find it a usability nightmare, so I'm probably not the right person to suggest alternatives to it.

I don't think there's a central organizing place, the work is happening across several Github issues and PRs. There's the Internals subforum [1] on Discourse if you have questions or need guidance, and there's a #internals channel on the Slack too.

> Every year I get four days in before it feels like work.

Same for me, but I don't think it's exactly about difficulty for me - I've done harder problems on Project Euler, SPOJ, etc., and very much enjoyed them, but somehow Advent of Code doesn't click for me. I think the difference is that there's a lot more "chore" work in AoC problems, compared to Euler or SPOJ where it's mainly about an "Aha" moment figuring out a solution (possibly getting it wrong, going back on it, and getting a different "Aha" moment exercising a different area of your knowledge space).

> I rather have gaudy bright colors than all these pastels. Almost every "Not Ideal" look so much nicer and with character. She managed to make everything look like a brochure at a children's hospital

That's a great description that goes with my (conspiracy?) theory: Popular media intended for general consumption (which are the exampes the author shows) uses these colours not because they're better for comprehension, but because a big segment of the general public is afraid of data and charts, and these colours let the data fade away into the background for those folks.

The point is to subtly say "it's okay if you don't get this data, this isn't really important" - a compromise between omitting the data altogether and giving it full importance and clarity.

Any examples? All I see in the recent release post is:

> ugrep is easily one of the if not most featureful grep programs in existence. And it is also fast.

which is burntsushi, ripgrep's author, defending ugrep from someone saying they only focus on performance at the cost of features.
