  1. In Topic: Anyone here uses emacs for editing javascript?

    Posted 11 Feb 2016

    The biggest problem is that some people prefer tabs and others prefer spaces. This means that if I like spaces and use 4 spaces for my tab indent and use expand tabs, while you prefer tab width of 8 spaces and use actual tabs, then when you look at my code it is completely borked on spacing, and then you save off and someone else comes along and has the potential to see something completely different.

    Spaces are nice and standardized. Having a required number of spaces for tab width and not using tabs means that the code looks consistent across editors (and the web, and emails, etc.).

    Random security audit: Do you have a password other than "password"? Good.
  3. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    It doesn't have _much_ to do with Bands... though it does have a bit...
    I have updated the spoiler to save others from themselves :)

    Yeah, I am just counting the Wax-n-Wayne series as a trilogy with an introduction. The Alloy of Law really felt to me as an introduction to the world and what has changed, while Shadows of Self and Bands of Mourning both felt more like a part of a trilogy (in my opinion) with far more contiguous story. Maybe I am just reading too much in to it though.

    As may be expected, I have finished Bands of Mourning at this point and am _definitely_, impatiently, awaiting The Lost Metal (which is set to release sometime after Oathbringer). So, for the time being, I am waiting for Calamity to come out, and may purchase the Mistborn novella that he recently released too (since he says it is meant to be read after Bands even though it takes place during the same time period as the original trilogy).

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
