    Still better than the metro UI . (Although if only you could add a ::selection class ..)

    Yeah, but there were no roguelikes in his list. So I'm seriously considering the possibility.

    Well, we are developers. We just don't think like normal people do. For instance, what is better; a) or b)?

    a)
    Code:
    DESTRUCTOR = "Destructor"
    // ...
    if(toy == DESTRUCTOR)
    b)
    Code:
    if(toy == "Destrutor")
    Quoting nouns in a constant might save you a runtime trip.

    LOL! That's a brilliant emoticon! I literally laughed out loud.

    I think it's interesting, and possibly indicative of our condition, as a society, when you have to say "I literally laughed out loud," because simply saying "LOL" no longer necessarily means that you actually did.
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    Indeed, I am guilty of using "lol" over text-based communication to mean "I found that funny", even if I did not literally laugh out loud. (Now analyzing my usage of this acronym, I believe that when I do actually laugh out loud, I use the all caps version "LOL").

    And yet at the same time, "literally" has been so abused, it doesn't necessarily even mean literally now, either.

    Please go on. I don't mean to interrupt.
    But when you two are done, please follow the procedures.
