💻 Kenneth Jensen There's a fair-sized market of used ThinkPads for this reason. Whoever put these big-ass bezels on a laptop then try to pass it off as the LVDS driver had ought to be stoned. Seriously unusable without a tiling window manager.
Vincent Ld Yay to thee

🤘 Matthew Oddly enough, I've only just started using regex in emacs. Whenever I needed to edit with regexps before, I'd switch to vi.
Vincent Ld I feel compelled to mention emacs' re-builder, in case someone doesn't know about it masteringemacs.org...

🤘 Matthew Emacs, but I can use ed and vi when they're better suited to a given task.
Vincent Ld Emacs too... I know enough of vi to quit (without saving) 🤘 But I can use nano when I'm forced to ;)

😀 Tom In Texas, many are without water, power, and internet. With no lights and internet, I wonder how many people's sleep schedules that's going to affect.
Vincent Ld If this is to last, I'm relocating now ;)

🏒 Lucian Marin On Linux you can use Dash to Panel on left side of the screen. Same can be done on Windows to save vertical space. 16:10 is a lot better for content creation, 16:9 is for content consumption.
Vincent Ld Thanks for the suggestion, very nice of you :) Under Linux I'd actually be using Xmonad or StumpWM to have my screen /full/. When reading code, my mind-buffer is sometimes blurry, I need my screen to show me as much state as it can. Rant is over. There's not fighting against The Market. But I won't buy a Thinkpad until they have proper screens back :p Nay, Lenovo.

Vincent Ld 16:9 screen on a laptop? No way. (Are they nuts or what?)

Sergiusz I was a part-time teacher in a vocational high-school (it technician) for the last one and a half year. It was a great adventure! I wish to pursue it, but sadly I don't have enough time between my other jobs/projects.
Vincent Ld Teaching is really awesome when kids get curious about what you're showing to them

Miso What project are you all working on these days?
Vincent Ld I'm grading my students for their Word/Excel/HTML exam. Neat :D Otherwise, I should figure out what occupation to seek for next year.

🏒 Lucian Marin Janet is a decent Lisp. I like how close it resembles Python.
Vincent Ld Thanks for the suggestion :) You may be interested in Hy, too. To make my original point clearer (if I had a point): I don't think I'll have a choice in picking my language, professionally. This motto is a way to reassure myself that C++ is a sane language, after all.

Vincent Ld [Troll warning} C++ is a decent Lisp nowadays.

👨‍💻 Matthieu V. What if people around us use the same communication channel ? I mean if I setup a Mattermost instance and I convince my friends and family to use it (separated by example by differents teams) all communication (text, audio and video) can happen in the same place !
Vincent Ld Assuming you get all colleagues and friends on your Mattermost (good luck with that :p), will you decline friendship with people who only use regular SMS?

😀 Tom There used to be something like that for IM called Meebo. It's a great idea, but do chat systems like Facebook allow third party apps?
Vincent Ld I don't see anything changing until messaging services are compelled by law to interoperate with 3rd party apps. This mess is there to last.

Vincent Ld How I wish all my communications could be funneled into just one channel: e-mail, chats on different media, even phone calls, etc. All registered in just one app so it stays coherent and I don't have to browse 7 apps when I'm looking for something. It's far more of a legal problem than a technical one, and it's a *shame*.
