    Clearly you never used Borland Together to work on Java. That thing WAS the slowest editor I've ever used (though to be fair, it wasn't just an editor).

    In all fairness though, I think some people are too harsh on Atom. I use vim, ST3 and Atom, and I tend to gravitate towards Atom most of the time. On a fast enough machine I don't find it slow at all, it's very convenient and it has a lot of great plugins.

    It's important to keep in mind that this isn't really SEO friendly as the content won't be crawled by search engines.

    Having done a media site using the WordPress API and Angular Universal, proper SEO is sometimes a thing that people don't take into account properly when using a JS framework to build a site.

    It's not just making sure you are serving the proper <meta> tags, but also handling routing properly, serving HTTP status codes correctly, choosing how to handle state handover between the server and the client, performance considerations, etc.

    I can't clearly understand how is this special for remote teams. Trello, JIRA, etc. are great tools for remote teams, so what about this product makes it better than those for remote teams?

    I'm a big fan of Ghost. It's very simple and lightweight.

    This is how you get away with !important —without using important.

    Great service!

    Although, this being DN and all, I do have to comment on the music playing on the background: not cool.

    It's awesome that this site is going to continue. I feel sorry that LayerVault had to shut down, but I never found a use for their service. I went back and forth with a customer rep last year, and he ended up agreeing that it didn't really fit my needs.

    You're absolutely right, I totally missed that part.

    I ended up looking up more info on this, and found this great article that gives some background on why this was necessary and a few technical details about the solution.

    Awesome. I would've guessed you could make a simpler implementation just by using an :after pseudo-element, kinda like this:

    a:visited::after { content: ' Seen'; //... s'more styles here }

    It turns out you can't! However, using ::after with other pseudo-classes such as :hover does work. Here's an example.

    Can anyone explain why that is? What's special about visited that doesn't let me use pseudo-elements?

    If only Fun With Flags was still on the "air" so they could discuss this...
