    @chriskrycho Yeah. Though I do feel a bit bad for the wiki languages that preceded MD. One MD to rule them all. One MD to bind them. One MD to bring them all. And in the wiki bind them.

      @braincutlery Plan ahead, buy a bunch of cards and keep them in the closet for just such emergencies. :-)

        RequireJS is an awesome module system. But it has terrible support for making libraries.

          @lomifeh @oluseyi Ah. And collectors value the artifacts themselves rather than the ostensible function of the artifacts.

            @danimal It is one of those pet theories that makes intuitive sense. I have no idea how you'd quantify it or if it has actually been studied in a rigorous way.

              @morrick Sure. I got side-tracked for a few days because of one of Vernor Vinge's tomes. But hopefully I will get a chance to read another one tonight.

                @misterpoppet Hmm. It occurs to me that if I ever get meme-app.net off the ground (or somebody does), that it should embed gifs in such a way that it is trivial for Felix, Wedge, or other clients to filter out all meme/gif posts. @wickedgood @morrick

                  @billkunz There is the notion that customer service gets worse when the economy improves because job-lock eases and the low-wage employers have to hunt more for qualified help. So maybe there is a silver lining here. :) @jedi @danimal

                    @morrick Hmm. Might be worthwhile to try to find a URL-decruftifier for browsers. This kind of thing annoys me as well.

                      @misterpoppet Great! Step 1: invent a new toy language. Step 2: write a lexer/parser/interpreter for it. Step 3: upload it to the esolang wiki Please keep me apprised of your progress. Make it a fun language.

                        @g33k I just hit step #6 yet again and thought of this post.

                          The six stages of debugging: 1. That can't happen. 2. That doesn't happen on my machine. 3. That shouldn't happen. 4. Why does that happen? 5. Oh, I see. 6. How did that ever work?

                            @longstride You need to read this short story: http://www.tor.com/stories/2010/08/divided-by-infinity It is extremely relevant here. But I can't really explain without ruining the premise.

                              @nitinkhanna This seems to do a pretty complete job of how to use Flexbox: http://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/a-guide-to-flexbox/ It includes how to use flexbox across supporting browsers. @robertbeeger

                                  @nitinkhanna I've got one word for you. Just one word: Flexbox. @robertbeeger @philg

                                    @robertbeeger Yeah. Having submitted one review to the app store, I probably will never do so again. I get much more apparent traction from talking about apps I like or am interested in here. Facilitating that kind of conversation would be cool.

                                      @robertbeeger None of this is guaranteed to work, though. Just seems like an interesting idea to pursue. I've played a bit with bookitics and will probably submit some reviews with it soon when I get the time. @nitinkhanna

                                        @robertbeeger For the app, you could also add in various pieces like have the ability to upload your homescreen to your profile, see your friends' homescreens, browse their homescreen history to see how it evolved, etc. @nitinkhanna
