  • Aristotle commented on PRC 2016 - Second Trimester
    And that is why I used "it seems", because I know it is not true.

    Culture gap I guess. “It seems” usually means “from what I can tell”, i.e. a position you are not necessarily sure about but which you conclude based on an observation. If you actually disagree with the impression – if you really mean something like “it gives the false impression” – then you need to explicitly say that. Otherwise most readers will misinterpret you. (I did, too.)

    I see what you mean, thanks Aristotle. Sometimes not easy to know how other will read, mainly when not writing in your own language.

    English is my second language, I just hope my blog post doesn't sound too harsh. I can imagine how maintaining an open source project works, how busy people could be with other stuff, and how exhausting it could be to describe steps taken by an automated system that one can't share directly.

    It's just curiosity. I'd still like to know whether the original issue was fixed. Thanks for all the work you do for us.

  • suspendedlight commented on Deprecated not depreciated

    @Jason you are my legend, I created an account to post this! The articles claiming deprecated was the correct use for Software nearly had me doubting myself!! Thanks for the clear breakdown and analysis, you legend!

  • Paul Johnson commented on Deprecated not depreciated

    Great. So now that's sorted perhaps we can move on to letting people know that "performant" isn't a word.

    OK, yes, it is, but it doesn't mean what you think it means.
