Do you misuse apostrophe's? Don't.

Haskell is delightfully ambiguous, especially by analogy.

So it isn't good. Thanks FU.

I tend to think that writing obfuscations with strict and warnings is more fun.

[Corion]: Doing that in Powerpoint or Ooxml would be nice(r) but I'm much quicker doing the outline of a presentation and the code as Pod
[Corion]: Hurrr - on a machine that is behaving weirdly, I have two processes CROND running. I guess that is the source of unattended jobs sometimes not finding their files anymore...
[ambrus]: Most of the time if I make slides, they're just a formatted document with a medium level of formality (between a well written article and an informal draft), with usually the page breaks chosen carefully and possibly some content repeated between pages.
[Corion]: ambrus: My slides are mostly a list of things I want to talk about. But sometimes I want to point out interesting parts, or build up a larger image from small components. This is where animations/ highlights would come in well
[choroba]: what I like about slides in HTML + CSS is I can use templates to produce them, which means all code in slides is tested, and I can version them in git
[ambrus]: Btw, a request to everyone who organizes international conferences where presenters will show slides.
[ambrus]: In the document where you tell people how long the presentations are supposed to be, please also tell the aspect ratio of your projectors, because that's not obvious in advance.
[Corion]: ambrus: A more important point is that when constructing slides, you should respect a margin around your slide content of maybe 10% where no important information should be ;)
[ambrus]: If you don't do that, some people will be able to use only two thirds of the available screen area, or have to prepare three versions of their slides, each of which is a waste that you could avoid with one simple phrase in the call for papers.
[Corion]: As for somebody hosting national conferences, we don't always know the kind of connectors and aspect ratios available ;)
