comment How to communicate software design efficiently between developers?
@Neil - I know it's a people problem first and foremost, but even those have methods for dealing with them. Currently I don't know how enthusiastic other people will be, though I suspect that it should be OK. The problem is that up to now we really don't have... anything. The framework is full of components and ideas that only I know of. :(

comment What markup languages are good for programming articles/tutorials?
Why is "Latvian support" so important? I assume LaTeX handles Unicode just fine, right? Also - since I'm a programmer I've no qualms about learning a new markup language. Although I am too lazy to learn Emacs. Notepad++ is my editor of choice. Is LaTeX better edited through something else?

@vermiculus - Yes, I know that the OP tried to do PDF->HTML, but he also tried to do LaTeX->HTML and other answers talk about that too. I didn't get the impression that it was easy. But OK, I'll try. Can LaTeX do syntax coloring?

@vermiculus - LaTeX was my first thought too, but then I started to search how to convert it to HTML and found that it was pretty unreliable. LaTeX is a very powerful language with many extensions. HTML isn't. But then I've no experience with LaTeX at all. Maybe it's doable if I stick to some specific subset of it?

comment Should a stack trace be in the error message presented to the user?
@MarkBooth - a unique ID serves the same purpose, but I suppose that adding time won't hurt either. Thanks! :)

comment Should a stack trace be in the error message presented to the user?
@AviD - Maybe you can point me to some resources that explain how a stack trace can be dangerous? I'm ready to accept that, but I want something more than the general priciple of "only show what you need to".
