  • I like LOVE the trick illustrated in the video driver, but if I didn't already know about the comment trick, and Spin was new to me, I might have a devil of a time understanding it. To me, ... is self explanatory, and having it as an option places no one under the gun to use it. What does it hurt to have it?

    The ASCII character set is pretty small, really, and Spin already uses most of it. As such, maybe it's better to save "..." for something not duplicative of a feature that already exists.

    Good point. Maybe the effort should be to document the comment trick, include it in a style guide or something so that it stands out as a feature instead of a work-around.. Indeed, until this discussion, it always was a work-around in my mind..

    Changing.....Mind..... Dang that thing is getting dry and crumbly...

  • From my noobie perspective ...
    is simply the more intuitive approach.
