comment Node.js app private modules. Where to put them?
docs.npmjs.com/… - 404's. But really the best way to keep things private is to not put them up on the internet. It sounds like link is the best option as well ... except npmjs.org/doc/link.html 404's as well. Got to love link rot.

comment How should you deal with a popular project that you no longer want to maintain?
@James -- "I really can't be bothered to get into a political argument on this in a comments section - goodbye". I completely agree. I just wanted to briefly articulate my position. But like you, not interested in an argument. We just will agree to disagree.

comment How should you deal with a popular project that you no longer want to maintain?
@James - sorry but yes. We need money to survive. We all have a very limited amount of time in this world. We should focus on the things that create the most "value". Working on projects that are not valued is a waste of life. How to measure value: 1) if other people don't find value in a project (and don't use it), then how "rewarding" is that project? 2) money is how we measure "value". 3) Opportunity cost - if OP continues to work on this (not valued?) project - what is the OP passing on working on?

@zladuric - agreed that is why I have "cost of a developer to continue development" ( where "you" could be that developer ). Too many developers do something "fun" without recognizing the need to run a business. TANSTAAFL

Well meaning answer that is just delaying the inevitable. Kill it or make money. Don't do it halfway - then it just becomes a energy drain.

answered My boss decided to add a “person to blame” field to every bug report. How can I convince him that it's a bad idea?

Try but then the same byte warriors would be after me for unnecessary whitespace at the beginning of lines. ( I would also have Javascript bugs because I would rely on Python's indent rule rather than using { }
