@matt I think the second one is very, very pretty!
@worr United States anti money laundering/tax evasion legislation.
@alcinnz I remember reading that enforcing closing tags was a deliberate choice to allow for piecemeal parsing on the memory-limited mobile devices of the time.
@emsenn oh wow. I used to play heavily some time between 2002 and 2003. It was a place with history even then; I can't believe it's still around.
@worr Used to work for a European bank. Whatever FATCAs intentions, it created an enormous amount of work for the tiny fraction of customers who were US citizens. If you don't have US citizen customers, you're automatically compliant with FATCA.
@z428 that's beautiful, thank you.
I'm trying to track down a 19th century French polymath -- engineer, economist, possibly public administrator. Did work on infrastructure, particularly sewers and/or water supply, bridges, and railroads.
I _think_ he also made an observation of the economic logic of multi-class passenger railroad service and amenities of accommodations (intentionally poor lowest-class service).
Likely active ~1840 - 1860.
My Web-fu is gives nil.
@JordiGH serious, but probably incorrect
@JordiGH I always thought taxi derived from the house of Thurn und Taxis and their courier service?
@tindall a thousand times this. I remember the brief time when ESR managed to pass himself off as conservative but sane. It's impossible to imagine now, but this man was actually respected and invited as a speaker in free/oss circles.

@JordiGH I think it's because corporate office culture has adopted the form of polite conversation. 'Please look into this' in corporate context is actually a demand, coated in a bit of politeness.
Similarly, a coworker complained that everything they do is now 'great', 'splendid' or 'wonderful'. He's taken to replying 'thanks, it's my job.'
@JordiGH I've had a similar experience (unrelated to tech) recently, and I was partially surprised by my own sensitivity to these (fairly small) differences in tone. I think of myself as a forgiving and accommodating person, but am I?
@anne I've been fortunate that I've never had cause to think about that last fact too much. I hope it'll stop burdening you too soon.
