in thread new tag

OK, so here are the arguments again ;--)

  • more work for Vroom for very little benefit: [author://5993] instead of mirod? Not a lot of keystrokes saved!
  • I like calling people by their names, and it's much easier to remember than an ID number.
  • I am not a number, I am a free man !

Be seing you!

    I'm suggesting this tag, not forcing :)) and Yes, I do know Vroom has a pretty long Todo list.
    The whole idea is to easily point to the author of a certain node without actually having to look up who it is... Similar to the node title in [id://]. If saving keystrokes is your main concern, you're always free not to use it :))

    You're a number, just like the rest of us. Learn to live with it! :)))
    Seriously, I'm not one to assign people their own private number. I don't address people by their homenode id, I don't think anyone here does.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
