comment Why does the TRACE level exists, and when should I use it rather than DEBUG?
@andy256 - in my experience, trace level logging disrupts that sort of stuff too.

comment Is brevity in writing code beneficial when it requires using language constructs in a strange way
@leushenko - well, I can only say that's a bunch of crap. If you give that program to a panel of programmers, and one that is less terse, I would guarantee that the less terse example would be read quicker, and with fewer errors. Even if they did have to scroll once or twice.

comment What are the practical implications of homotopy type theory in programming?
@NikolajK - there is a decided difference between Portuguese to someone living in the US and unlikely to ever travel to a Portuguese locale and homotopy type theory to a professional programmer who does type system research in his spare time. I mean, I'm probably one of the most likely people on the site to be able to understand this stuff, yet it is still well beyond me.
