  • Dabz: I use both metric and imperial at work, if I'm measuring something, and squiggling it out on a bit of paper, I have like '<--- 125mm --->' then somewhere else I'd have '<--- 6 1/4" --->', all depends really what measurement is to the nearest mark on the tape, and usually, if your measuring old stuff, imperial fits as a whole number, if you get me.

  • Derron: They can't be wrong. There is nothing more easier to calculate with than with inches, feet, barrel, oz., ...

  • Steve Elliott: US English ffs?!  The Americans can't spell anything correctly, and their geography is as bad!

  • Kryzon: I used to spell it with the ou's as well, as it's for British/International English vs US English. But then I noticed it was more about my vanity than anything else, so now I don't really care

  • Derron: Do me a favour and spell it favor :-). Using "ou" seems a bit lend from the French ("bravour" etc.)

  • Kryzon: Oooh look at me, I'm Qube and I spell "colour" instead of "color"
    August 23, 2019, 06:16:32 PM
  • Qube: I don't mind a bit of colour in an IDE but it all depends on the colouring system.

  • Derron: I think stuff like "&&" or "||" or maybe even brackets allow to easier "group" elements visually. Other want more highlighted stuff. It should not just require 20 styles (bold, color, italic, and their mixes)

  • Steve Elliott: lol it's a very personal thing.  I just find it jarring looking at varying colours constantly as you read each line.
    August 22, 2019, 09:29:19 PM
  • Derron: Steve is partly right: in the link Kryzon gave the numbers are "orange" while variables are grey - so numbers importance >> variable importance. Exception for more vibrant colors are "strings" as you then easier spot if you missed the closing quotation mark ;-)

  • Steve Elliott: Notepad++ is cool :)
    August 22, 2019, 08:13:29 PM
  • Kryzon: I love Notepad++'s Obsidian theme: [link]
    August 22, 2019, 08:10:16 PM
  • Steve Elliott: Why do people have to have a different colour for everything in an IDE?  I find it distracting.  Dark background and 2 colours - one for code and one for comments.

  • Rick Nasher: You got that exactly right *THAT THING* (and not in a good way)..
