    All the talk of scaling on this thread and no mention of scaling developers. What happens when you go from 1 to 10 to 100 to 1000 to N developers? Admittedly not a problem everyone needs to solve, but an axis of scaling people aren’t talking about.

      I’m still stuck on PeepOpen + MacVim.

      The vim-native file finders are nowhere near as nice. I’ve tried pretty much all of them.

      Unfortunately, PeepOpen does not work on Sierra at all.

        fzf and its associated plugin for vim probably do all you want and more. And the performance is excellent.

        I used a LackRack for a while, but the particle board the legs are made out of is pretty flimsy. Be very careful not to over tighten. And, if you need to unscrew equipment, be very careful when reusing your screw holes.

        FWIW, smaller 19" equipment racks of the same size as this are not much more expensive.

          A Lack table is £5. I find it hard to believe that any 19" rack can match that, no matter how small!

          I realize this is a release/announce kind of thing, but it’s still pretty thin. I didn’t learn much about xmake from it, like, say, what xmake actually is.

            Took an extra click to get to this: http://xmake.io/

            I learned a hard lesson several years ago in dealing with a racist, misogynist, asshole of a manager, which is strongly reinforced here: HR does not exist for the benefit of employees. HR exists solely for the corporation, executives, senior management, and keeping the company out of legal trouble.

            Never trust HR. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring your case to them. It means when you do bring your case to them you must document everything in the process, and record what you can.

              I taught myself programming and cut my teeth on many years of Turbo Pascal. My first computer book ever was on this language. Bought for me by my Grandma while visiting her in New Orleans one weekend. I devoured the book without the luxury of a computer or compiler in front of me; I think that helped me digest it better. I wrote code on pen and paper. Many years of fantastic memories. Thanks for the article!

              Also, mistagged javascript; but I’m uncertain how to properly suggest the change.
