@cwebber I was relieved reading that too. However, this is just the proposed deal and it still has to actually be approved. I'm worried they are going to try and sneak in a shitty Obamacare bill under the reconciliation rules.

@chrismartin In my weather-based language, I'd make it switch from dynamically typed in the careless summer to statically typed in the serious winter. As the spring comes, the compiler would let more and more untyped variables slip by.
The compiler could even connect to weather.com and demand more types when it's raining.
Types are umbrellas!
Right, let's post some pretty things. Here's something huge and insane that I'm working on. It's on A3-size paper. 12 hours in so far. I work on it in small bursts here and there because it's so crazy detailed.
