    1. Question 30. May a title IV-E agency claim title IV-E administrative costs for attorneys to provide legal representation for the title IV-E agency, a candidate for title IV-E foster care or a title IV-E eligible child in foster care and the child's parents to prepare for and participate in all stages of foster care related legal proceedings? Answer Yes. The statute at section 474(a)(3) of the Act and regulations at 45 CFR 1356.60(c) specify that Federal financial participation (FFP) is available at the rate of 50% for administrative expenditures necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the title IV-E plan. The title IV-E agency's representation in judicial determinations continues to be an allowable administrative cost. Previous policy prohibited the agency from claiming title IV-E administrative costs for legal services provided by an attorney representing a child or parent. This policy is revised to allow the title IV-E agency to claim title IV-E administrative costs of independent legal representation by an attorney for a child who is a candidate for title IV-E foster care or in foster care and his/her parent to prepare for and participate in all stages of foster care legal proceedings, such as court hearings related to a child's removal from the home. These administrative costs of legal representation must be paid through the title IV-E agency. This change in policy will ensure that, among other things: reasonable efforts are made to prevent removal and finalize the permanency plan; and parents and youth are engaged in and complying with case plans.

    1. trauma reenactment narrative is by getting the child manipulating the child convincing the child to adopt the victimized child role within that trauma reenactment there and so all we have to do is get the child to believe that the

      This ominous realization did not occur and come together for me until just now:

      Kate's influence did not start with Kate directly. It would have started with her son Liam. I've not recognized until now the likely significant role he plays in this. He is her son. He would have already been fully traumatized by Kate or by the situation with his dad, depending on if it existed, but if it did or didn't, the fear/abandonment/insecure attachment disorder would be entrenched in both Kate and Liam and they would be reinforcing it in each other. Rhyanna working with Liam at Subway would have been the first contact in which casual conversation would begin the subtle campaign by Liam via trauma reenactment (and also fueled by being a teenage boy meets girl savior/peacocking mentality) that at first innocuously and then overtly was showing (manipulating into false belief) that she is victimized. Liam then notifies Mom of "the recruit", probably a genuine felt statement like "Mom, there's this girl at work and it sounds like she's going through what we went through and we could help her". Then Mom [Kate], which we know this happened, took the initiative to contact her (or told Liam to bring her over to the house to hangout so she could then introduce herself and have 'a talk' with her). Phone numbers were shared, instructions to not let Dad know where they lived were given, taking out to dinners were done, sharing of "stories about my husband we don't tell other people so please don't share this" were given about "my dangerous psychotic husband that Liam and I had to flee from and go on the run because the system couldn't save us so we had to act outside it". This matches the dynamic and origination story of every cult/radical "church"/scientology/NXIVM story I know and it is the same dynamic whether it's the pathogenic parent or pathogenic adult influence which in this way has an extra component of evolution. Ie, the pathogenic adult has created/obtained a pathogenic "victimized" subordinate follower. The follower then acts as a relatable/ice-breaking recruiter that has the effect on the target of " they're my peer, they're like me, I can therefore trust the accuracy of what they're saying more and am more willing to listen". Then when the follower eventually introduces the pathogenic adult, the critical judgement defence of the target is suppressed/ignored because the target has made the naive judgment error that since I believe and feel trusting in this peer, I can put that trust into someone he is introducing me too. And because that person is "the adult in the room" this person instantly gets, erroneously, the elevated security clearance in the target's mind that this person is a "trusted"+"adult"+"who understands me"+"has my best interest"+"and knows what I need". Additionally, when speaking with this adult, should the target's defense mechanisms of critical judgement start turning on, the target then looks to a reference point to "reality test", and the follower, Liam, is immediately on hand and present almost daily to act as that reference point nodding reassuringly when the target glances over [literally or metaphorically]. ..... Combine this with a parent who is getting sicker and sicker, who's observably by the child who knows her father well can tell his fear, anxiety (particularly regarding his ability to provide for them both), and sadness because of his non-improving sickness from a mysterious unknown deadly pandemic disease, a parent who is the SOLE parent and there is no second parent to reality test against and get reassuring grounded perspective (ie you are not victimized, dad isn't going to kill himself, yes this is a tough situation but we and you are not a victim and this is not a Hallmark/teen drama, and tough situations like this have long been and are a prolific part of human life and we can more than handle this situation and frankly will serve to accelerate your empowered growth and deeper understanding, meaning, passion, joy of life and further shedding of vulnerability to irrational and mismanagement of uncontrollable fear as a general skill set in your personal quiver. This all is the loss of the second, of which there may only be 2, fundamental defense mechanisms to safeguard a child's sound critical analytical/judgement skills. It is easy to empathize with a child's daily living experience, especially an adolescent, how these are the 2 mechanisms which are functioning by which they are consuming and assembling all new knowledge and understanding. #1 They first use their incumbent developed analytical/judgement skills to self analyze a concept or problem or question. #2 They verify that determination with their trusted source of truth and protection, ie their parents (a reality test). Perhaps this at the root of the common report "teenagers think they know everything". It's probably the first time the first mechanism is developed strongly enough to feel like it can safely be used in its own. And in being the first time, many errors will be made and in many of those errors the use of verification of mechanism 2 will not be used. An ill unimproving parent will exacerbate the error to not use mechanism 2. Fear and anxiety will exacerbate errors in mechanism number 1. Severity of those insults would proportionally affect the rate of error. Malfunctions in both mechanisms would have a multiplicative effect on damaging erroneous conclusions the child arrives at and the damage further choices on those erroneous conclusions causes. Then when the "virus" of the narcissistic/BLP cross generational shared persecutory delusion boundary violation gains entry into this now much increased "analytically vulnerable" child, it has the critically added effect of disabling mechanism 2 since the patent now becomes "all bad [splitting]". ..... Then ..... add to this child a history that she is a survivor, albeit exceptionally so, of incurring the pain and largely successful battle for separation from a very narcissistic mother and the family that produced that narcissism in her mother. The entire repercussions of that I am not sure, but relevant here is I think that means my child's developmental reality has a biased understanding and emotional sensitivity to the fear that a parent "I thought was normal, changed into a monster" and second "I fully believed a truth about the 1 of 2 people I trusted and depend on the most, and I was wrong. How can I trust my own conclusions now if I can't trust my own analytical and emotional judgement abilities?". No doubt also a fear and anxiety upregulating mechanism in and if itself, as well as providing a data point which can add confusion to a child frantically looking for understanding and/or can be leveraged to falsely rationalize the false narrative is correct especially when the pain of the truth is building and she is looking for any tool to suppress confronting that pain.

      Then, as Rhyanna further looks for, or rather it is imposed onto her, the naive drama thirsty peer group, whom many know Liam and Kate, and whom with very good intention but naivety of teenagers who in Boulder Colorado are conditioned to both be very helpful and that money and wealth (like them) combined with middle aged Caucasian combined with a "Boulderite" personality with an air of non-confrontational superiority and cancel-culture tendencies is the equivalent of "insightful, wise, holder of truth, and generally the definition of what is good, righteous, and hold the authority to declare whom is bad and further that it is expected that they will declare whom is good and bad and that action further validates that they are and have such authorities" in these teenagers minds reenforces this false truth as accurate.. Then the school, then CIRT team "mental health professionals", then the mental health hospital centennial peaks, then Boulder county child welfare via multiple staff, then the court and the judge personally all buy in and propagate this false truth and reinforce it overtly or indirectly overtly, and some propagate it by simply ignoring and not speaking out against or in questioning validity, all reinforcing this false truth. ..... And given all this, given all these goddamn ignorant spineless children of men in their lack of knowledge or past traumas, and under the weight of their ignorance and cowardice and laziness, and then under the unreal weight and fear and confusion of her and her dad, her one parent who's been her warrior defender of knowledge, self discovery, safety, character, food, and shelter, and whom no other family support exists is now very possibly dying and cannot speak for himself or to her (because her confusion and outside influence is not allowing it) to tell her the truth and reassurance of the situation ....... her heart and mind refuse to yield. The pain from her heart refusing to give way to the lie, they are trying to make her believe had caused her to want to kill herself. My daughter s unyielding heart and character brought tears to a police officer who'd not had the fortune of experiencing someone like my daughter. And still, after a year and a half, my daughter, MY daughter, still holds fast and is unwilling to tell the COURT that her resistance is because of me and is instead because of her. Yeah, that's who my daughter is. That is the caliber here. She is her father's daughter.

      I see you kid. You hold fast. I'm comin' for you.

      PS - Attention needs to be given to Liam. With consideration towards his possible and to what degree of trauma, and the validity of the story regarding his father.. It is now a real question, is his father above and well, normative, searching for his son and or fallen into decline, suicidality, doom? Is Liam about to lose a father and be irreversibly severely damaged because of the complete irreversible devastation, which will also include the self blame he incurs and will not be able to reconcile.

      PSS - likely it is both important and the is the time to revisit with focus Rhyannas feelings and understanding of her mom. She possibly stands to gain 1, a self confidence and esteem and complete obliteration of any feeling/false rationalization that she is somehow "less", that she is at fault, or that she is somehow "less capable" of a person now and going forward, 2) stamp out reactions of hate, tolerance, splitting, and walls she might form that would prevent problem solving, truth finding, and understanding so crucial to both abilities and finding of joy, particularly in relationships of love and family, 3) she stands to gain a mother and an entire side of a family and which is attained by a fulfilling relationship of her own architecture and which she is fully empowered to control and manage and nurture at her pleasure.

      c) If the mental health professional finds, based upon a prescreening done pursuant to this section or section 19-3-403 (4), that the child may have a mental health disorder, as defined in section 27-65-102, the court shall review the prescreening report within twenty-four hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays, and order the child placed for an evaluation at a facility designated by the commissioner of the behavioral health administration

      (d) An evaluation conducted pursuant to this subsection (1) must be completed within seventy-two hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. A county jail or a detention facility, as described in article 2.5 of this title 19, is not considered a suitable facility for evaluation,

Unfortunately there isn't really any good serializers in Ruby's stdlib to replace it. The obvious choice would be JSON, which is a fine format for this use case, however the JSON serializer in Ruby's stdlib isn't strict enough, as it fallback to casting unknown types to strings, which could lead to corrupted data. Some third party JSON libraries like Oj have a suitable strict mode.

    1. A motion can be written or spoken, as the relevant rules require.

      My statement in court to McLean I wanted a trial was a clear motion

    1. Summary Judgment

      ABA: Motion for Summary Judgment (sometimes called motion for summary disposition). This motion asks the court for a judgment on the merits of the case before the trial. It is properly made where there is no dispute about the facts and only a question of law needs to be decided.

      The was A HUGE DISPUTE of the facts. Not only the facts presented, but also the omission, AND ALSO THAT I NEVER HAD 1 CHANCE TO SPEAK AND STATE ANNNY FACTS! And, as federal civil procedure rules state, summary judgement can only occur after the close of Discovery...we NEVER HAD DISCOVERY

    2. motion for summary judgment shall be filed no later than 91 days (13 weeks) prior to tria

      The motion was filed 45 days prior to trial. ...I mean, beyond Haley being criminally fucking useless, when does the judge become accountable for not letting illegal shit happen in her case???? Regardless of what the attorneys do; isn't she the "trier of law" and "trier of facts"? I mean, what the fuck??

      I don't remember her doing this. She sure as fuck didn't execute it.

    1. irst, judges do not receive sufficient information to make aninformed decision regarding reasonable efforts. Usually, the only information comes from the agency

      Haylie is not providing any information to the judge, e.g.: - harboring not addressed - intake lied - intake failed to meet promise - intake actually DROVE removal, as in "negative reasonable efforts" - intake did not provide allegations at first contact or ever; and also therefore, 2., did not collect response, and necessary danger data and necessary services/needs data - intake did not provide, therefore, a credible report informing court of true nature - intake offered no FFPSA designated services nor Core Services Program services - intake provided no list of services offered/provided, no list of identified needs, no explanation of how it succeeded or failed - magistrate did not examine, inquire, or document specifically and detailed the reasonable efforts in "The Prevention Plan"...I've seen no Prevention Plan and certainly not filed with the court - Visitation scheduler: 1) not competently trained in youth or resist and refuse; only 1.5 years licensed (probably no clinical practice) and self identified adult addiction, 2)provided no scientific backing for recommendations, omitted context to misrepresent truth, did not identify needs, provided no plan to resolve/address those needs especially science-backed (and found to be an intern), 3)was 3+ weeks late for 1wk due date - caseworker was assigned over a month later and is mandated to be immediate at time of 1st hearing - CASA was not assigned until 4 months later and i've still never heard from them - caseworker was told must provide allegations report and still did not and would not - family needs assessment was never done, certainly not in my presence, nor with my collaboration and agreement, if in the background there is one it is a lie or of completely insufficient quality and was not reported to me when asked for. It was not done even close to 60 day (therefore also does not meet mandate of "timely") deadline (and if it's dated as such it is a complete BS non-assessment only for the purposes of making it show up on a log as done). It does not identify needs/problems (most importantly resist/refuse) that brought forth D&N, it does not identify services that address the particular needs (most importantly a resist/refuse doctor; also actively blocked FUP) (and therefore nothing is science based "trauma informed" as mandated), it does not mandate what must be changed/achieved and the marker for that achievement; I still was not given Service Plan when I pried and pried for clear list of items that brought forth D&N-what was needed to change/achieved to end State's involvement-what services were/could/wanted to be done - DHS has failed to investigate it's actions of abuse to confirm/deny; which in the case that abuse did not happen 2. has failed to meet "timely" mandate of services to medically assess and treat resist/refuse and 3. failed "reasonable efforts to reunify" mandate - DHS has not only 1. failed mandate to offer/make available/refer & monitor and ensure execution of services/ (e.g. Core, FFPSA, "unique to family needs", "public or private/community bases", "evidenced based", "trauma informed...further defined in CCR as "complete situation assessment/treatment, whole family") they 2. made ME responsible for REFERRING THEM and with an expectation it likely WOULD NOT BE PURSUED, 3. was essentially told Core Services wasn't real (was ignored and then simply would not answer when i asked directly in-person about "Core Services" and changed the subject) when I specifically asked, 4. mocked when I gave science backed warning of imminent and severe risk and necessary doctor services needed - court did not set adjudication until 2+ months past federally mandated 90 day MAXIMUM (and is written as "should be much sooner and ASAP", and 2. almost 4 months after 20th District's filed D&N management commitment plan - Independent Assessment: did not meet many many mandates (see email to Haylie on objection to recommendation) - QI did not include family, claims 6 attempts to call but did not as mandated provide evidence of attempts, State did not meet mandate to make sure family was included in the process and ACTIVELY KEPT MOM & DAD & ATTORNEYS as mandated of the mandated Family and Permancy Team Meeting; did not complete in 10/14 day CDHS mandate nor did complete in 30 day federal requirement (which is also contractually owed by ASO); never held a 2nd Team meeting as requested (which resulted in a ruling based on false argument that would have been quashed in the meeting and also the QI realizing and changing her recommendations with the knowledge that the false claim was not only indeed false but that the credibility of information provided by state & CYF was now in question; and ultimately a result of a QI would have full & true understanding of medical need and severity and harm befalling child and family and would have urgently recommended necessary interventions which had so long been failed to be recognized/provided by State) - Court nor State was informed of fundamental FFPSA law as is absolutely expected to be known by a Child Welfare Judge and Child Welfare Attorney and Child Welfare Agency, at QRTP Assessment Review Hearing and made ruling on completely false law justification that child is not legally allowed to remain at the QRTP [b/c of course she is, which is the whole point of the hearing, b/c it's up to judge to determine if she should stay or not regardless of IA summary report recommendations

    2. One conclusion this book reaches is that reasonable efforts should belitigated early,
    1. although the judge may agree there are no material issues of fact remaining for trial, the judge may also find that it is the non-moving party that is entitled to judgment as a matter of law
    2. In the United States, the presiding judge generally must find there is "no genuine dispute as to any material fact and the movant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law."[2

      Really Haley?? You could not argue that,

      1) there was no genuine dispute over the material facts....over "what happened, AND what realities/possibilities/options/resources/outcomes exist" ????

      2) that I was not entitled to "judgment" regardless of "material facts being in dispute" OR NOT "in dispute". For starters, a for a trial review of the facts regarding the determination of grounds that have been brought forth, not brought forth, and mis-presented, and additional are due and necessitate the compelling process of discovery in order to assure provision of, and of which a collection is already known by respondent and counsel to exist which the court has not been made of and who's determined clarity resulting from the analytical vetting the trial will provide holds the potential power to not just determine whether the state had grounds, but regardless of that outcome, to help all parties determine collaboratively and aided by the authoritative might of the court how the state can best provide help and services going forward, including if appropriate removing themselves from intruding a moment further in this family's lives and liberties. ....

    1. Effective residential treatment programs provide:

      What she could have received if she stayed at the QRTP (if Haylie knew the law; if DHS, Ramirez, Beato, McLean also knew and performed their job core competencies)

      Nikki Getz was the "qualified" brainchild to recommend depriving her of all this. I even have her recorded saying it is a serious issue that she has continued adamant contact refusal

    2. Involvement of the child's family or support system. Model residential programs encourage and provide opportunities for family therapy and contact

      Would have addressed the 1) family dysfunction need that brought DHS to be involved, 2) reasonable efforts for reunification 3)ffpsa mandate for family preservation, involvment, trauma-informed, 4) identified needs/wishes of family

    3. Psychiatric care coordinated by a child and adolescent psychiatrist or psychiatric prescriber.

      Could of had a Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist coordinating care, instead of a dipshit LCSW intern. And contribute to FFPSA mandate for trauma-informed, highest available science, evidence based

    4. An Individualized Treatment Plan that puts into place interventions that help the child or adolescent attain these goals.

      Could have finally had a treatment plan

    5. who have not responded to outpatient treatments

      The umm "plan" from Allison and Kim was Rhyanna see her therapist until she spontaneously decided to re-engage. Did the outpatient solution work? No. Did it get worse? Yes. She was put on an M1 hold. She is in QRTP for over a month and the argument was "she's doing so well [other than the enormous symptom of contact-refusal] has not improved at all] so, what your saying, should be taken out of the treatment that has shown improvement [i.e. QRTP], and take her out before the largest issue has been solved and put her into a "no treatment" facility? SERIOUSLY??

    1. Many services are not on the evidence-based list. That does notmean, however, that they have not been evaluated for effectiveness. The agency should be able toexplain to the court how it has evaluated the effectiveness of a particular service.

    1. Neither affidavits nor subsequent “nunc protunc” orders are acceptable verification for meeting this “reasonable efforts” requirement.

      Cannot retroactively add to the orders or documentation to bolster the (false) fact that court diligently examined and found specific findings of reasonable efforts

    2. There must be an order of the court within sixty (60) calendar days after the date the childis placed in out-of-home care with a finding to the effect that:a. Reasonable efforts were made to prevent the removal of the child from the home
    3. County departments shall make reasonable efforts to advise county residents of servicesavailable through the state and county department by means of such methods as press releases,presentations, pamphlets, websites, social media and other mass media.

      I have seen no mention of "core services", "ffpsa", or any services afforded under them from Boulder County or on their website. Nor did Allison acknowledge them.

      Thoughts: So far it appears there is no law about who can diagnose. What there is is: - description of a rubric to grade a expert witness - general description that states cannot operate outside area if training and competence (but how to define that area is absent) - core services / FFPSA law mandating evidence based, trauma Informed, Clearinghouse designated, best available science, meet particular needs of family - law (or in draft) defining trauma Informed - licensing and professional associations standards and code of ethics regarding non black and white values and efforts mandates - there are laws that say if you can call yourself a doctor, therapist, etc, but non if them limit what they can or cannot do - therefore, legally, anyone can diagnose anyone with anything, including DSM codes, and you can take money for it...you just can't call yourself any of the protected titles

      So, when it comes to who is "legally qualified" or a "legally allowed expert", (which is just the expert, and not ultimately the credibility of the "evaluation/recommendation" it comes down to just who can provide a stronger argument that the expert in question is "more expert" than the other "expert". It's the exact same concept as scientific theory. You can't "prove" a scientific theory. You can only provide increasingly stronger (ultimately just means, whether for good reasons or bad, the emotion that something feels stronger or better) arguments that it is true. As in you can't prove "expertise" or that an eval is correct. However, you can "disprove" expertise or scientific theory.

      In psychotherapy there is an enormous gap of a system that gives a credible prediction of what a "provider" is likely to soundly be able to evaluate (and further a system for them to soundly know when and how to refer out). Perhaps some kind of "certifications needed" section for each DSM code.

      So what you can do is: - used the defined law and prof orgs law and ethics as rubrics (like a grading table), the table in this paper is a good one to incorporate, to make an argument of strongest expert. - you can also get more than one expert or experts from different areas which have all of them agreeing - strategy: also send evaluation off to credible authority to get their endorsement - strategy: do that memorandum thing (ABA guide how to influence judges) to advance submit law and argument to judge - all of this is the exact same issue, concept, and strategy to battle "reasonable efforts"

    1. When considering a request for removal, ask if the agency madereasonable efforts to prevent removal, which may include providingfederally supported prevention services.• If reasonable efforts have not been made, consider court orders forprevention services that may allow the child to remain safely at home.• Consider relevance of prevention services outside dependency &neglect context. Who else could benefit from prevention upstream?
    2. If reasonable efforts were not made, request a “no reasonable efforts”finding and an order returning the child to the family with appropriateservices.
    3. If the child is removed, request a copy of the family’s prevention plan (orother reflection of prevention services) to review what the agency offeredand whether reasonable efforts have been made to prevent removal
    4. Reasonable efforts to prevent removal: If a petition must be filed afterservices provided, prepare evidence of the prevention services offeredand used as an element of the agency’s reasonable efforts.

    2. Edwards, Judge Leonard. “Overcoming Barriers toMaking Meaningful Reasonable Efforts Findings.” ABAChild Law Practice, January 29, 2019.Explains that it is not enough to make service referralsand note them in a case plan. Instead, “judges shoulddiscuss the availability and effectiveness of services pro-vided by service providers contracted by the agency,” and“frontline social workers should accurately assess familyneeds and report those needs to the court. Those needsshould form the foundation of the case plan.”
    3. Consider citing information on:Reasonable efforts to reunify

      ABA list of resources to cite to overcome lack of reunification

    4. When necessary, argue to the court that by not pro-viding a reunified child with appropriate services, the agency is not making mandated reasonable efforts to achieve permanency
    5. Providing states improved access to federal funds for reunification services aligns with the federal Children’s Bureau’s renewed focus on reasonable efforts to achieve permanency requirements. Families should be provided all needed assistance to ensure the safe reunification of the child. (See reasonable efforts resources in Research to Cite: Reunification Services for the Family.)

      Families should be provided all needed assistance to ensure the safe reunification of the child

    6. Judicial decision maker❑When reviewing a petition for removal, ask if the agen-cy made reasonable efforts to prevent removal, which may include providing federally supported prevention services. ƒInvite discussion and debate among parties about whether the reasonable efforts finding is appropri-ate. ƒIf reasonable efforts have not been made, consider court orders for prevention services that may allow the child to remain safely at home. ƒIf reasonable efforts have been made, be specific about what measures constituted reasonable efforts when making written findings in the case

      No documentation of specific prevention measures of reasonable efforts was done

    7. If the child is removed, request a copy of the family’s prevention plan to review what the agency offered and whether reasonable efforts have been made to prevent removal especially in cases involving mental health, substance use, and parenting skills challenges (if neces-sary, request the prevention plan through the discovery process)

    1. If we ever moved a file to a different location or renamed it, all its previous history is lost in git log, unless we specifically use git log --follow. I think usually, the expected behavior is that we'd like to see the past history too, not "cut off" after the rename or move, so is there a reason why git log doesn't default to using the --follow flag?
    1. Note: Git 2.6+ (Q3 2015) will propose that in command line: see "Why does git log not default to git log --follow?" Note: Git 2.6.0 has been released and includes this feature. Following path changes in the log command can be enabled by setting the log.follow config option to true as in: git config log.follow true

    1. They cause completely different behavior for auto margins. If you have a fixed element for example with top/bottom/left/right set to zero and you stick an image in it you want to center wrapped in a div, then in order to center that div with auto margins, you MUST specify a CSS width/height, because specifying an HTML attribute width/height has no effect and the margins remain zero. I have no idea why the difference exists.
    2. Whether to specify in html or css is best judged on individual circumstances. A large number of images of the same size would probably be best served with css, a single image with html. That said, if you are specifying other styles for the image (border colour, style or radius, float etc) it would make sense to add width & height to the css.

    1. If you call ./configure --enable-gui=auto, the build process will automatically build against whichever GUI libraries are available. A cursory glance suggests that gtk2 will be prioritised over gnome2.
    1. Of course user expectations for titles are the most important thing. You don’t want to sell a tiny game at AAA price, because you won’t sell many copies and you’ll make your gamers feel ripped off.

    1. Record filters allow you to require an instance of a particular class (or one of its subclasses) or a value that can be used to locate an instance of the object. If the value does not match, it will call find on the class of the record. This is particularly useful when working with ActiveRecord objects.

    1. premailer-rails processes all outgoing emails by default. If you wish to skip premailer for a certain email, simply set the :skip_premailer header:

    1. I'd instinctively associate a this.cache() inside preload with the preloaded data only -- meaning no matter what crazy thing I did inside preload, the returned data would be cached locally, where local means either the client or server.

    1. logInfoToStdOut (boolean) (default=false) This is important if you read from stdout or stderr and for proper error handling. The default value ensures that you can read from stdout e.g. via pipes or you use webpack -j to generate json output.
    1. You will be disrupted by this first issue. It is natural to expect relative references to be resolved against the .sass/.scss file in which they are specified (like in regular .css files).
    1. We all know that real business logic does not belong in the presentation layer, but what about simple presentation-oriented things like coloring alternate rows in table or marking the selected option in a <select> dropdown? It seems equally wrong to ask the controller/business logic code to compute these down to simple booleans in order to reduce the logic in the presentation template. This route just lead to polluting the business layer code with presentation-oriented logic.

    1. Right, and if most uses of an FTP service use new FtpService() the one that sets an alternate port will stand out (service.SetPort(12345))
    2. The concept of Convention over Configuration is impossible without sensible default values. The key word here is "sensible". The default values have to make sense for at least 80% (if not more) of all the uses of a library/service/framework.

    1. What I believe should happen is the Svelte compiler should, when a promise is passed to onMount, realise that a promise has been passed, and await the result of the function to be used as the onDestroy function. i.e, it should behave the exact same way for an async function as it does for a non-async function (if this is possible)
    1. Also, I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's okay to have multiple spreads? If the alternative to <Foo {...a} {...b} {...c} d={42}> is that people will write <Foo {...Object.assign({}, a, b, c)} d={42}> anyway, then do we gain anything with the constraint?
    1. The fears of breaking one of Svelte's core tenets seem overblown to me. Style encapsulation by default is great, but that doesn't mean we should contort the framework around it.

    1. warn iff not seen before can be an acceptable option.
    2. So what Python currently does in issue depreciation warnings in the main program, but not in libraries and similar code. That may also be a reasonable way to limit the number of warnings while making sure deprecations don't go unnoticed (because that makes them useless).

    1. However, a ActiveRecord::Rollback within the nested transaction will be caught by the block of the nested transaction, but will be ignored by the outer transaction, and not cause a roll back! To avoid this unexpected behaviour, you have to explicitly tell rails for each transaction to indeed use proper nesting: CopyActiveRecord::Base.transaction(joinable: false, requires_new: true) do # inner code end This is a safer default for working with custom transactions.

    1. There will be limits placed on what will and will not be masked. This will include accounting for enough entropy to make sense (e.g. don't mask a variable that is just set to a word.) and are not multi-line.
