Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment How can I automatically undo checkouts on unmodified files?
@chrisf the better way to describe this is that it is not a "whiteboard, conceptual" question. It has a concrete and definite answer.. it's also something you would ask while sitting in front of your code editor. see blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/12/…

"The root cause of this problem isn't the user but the fact that it isn't obvious to them that they can do this." The root problem is that they don't care.

isn't this just a syntax highlighter? Not really what was asked in the question. And it can't distinguish between English and code.
