Vim - General - How to get vim patch version number in vim script?
As far as the patch level, the normal way to do it would be something along the lines of
<code class="language-viml">if v:version > 702 || (v:version == 702 && has('patch31'))</code>
which returns true if the vim binary is from the yet-unreleased 7.3 or higher, or if it's from vim 7.2 and includes patch 31.

<code>To merge in changes from Github, do this:
- Commit any pending changes.
- Setup the merge tool:
git config merge.tool vimdiff
git config merge.conflictstyle diff3
git config mergetool.prompt false
- Run the merge tool:
git mergetool
This will open a four-way diff between:
LOCAL - your current version
BASE - version as it was at your last sync
REMOTE - version at head on Github
MERGED - best-effort merge of LOCAL and REMOTE
Now find places where automatic merge didn't work, they are marked with
<<<<<<<<, ======= and >>>>>>>
Fix those places in MERGED, remove the markers, and save the file :wqall.</code>

Your first extension - Mozilla | MDN
On macOS 10.14 (Mojave), I had to
<code class="language-bash">
sudo port install nodejs10
sudo port install python27
sudo port select --set python2 python27

# install NPM modules into $HOME
npm config set prefix $HOME/.local/lib/node_modules
echo "export PATH=$HOME/.local/lib/node_modules/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bash_profile

# this needed 'python2' in the PATH (for node-gyp, whatever that is)
npm install -g web-ext

# then build the extension
web-ext build

Also, try to use the linter on the built '.zip' file:

<code class="language-bash">addons-linter web-ext-artifacts/*.zip</code>

Otherwise you might get a "Can't install addon because it seems to be corrupt" error, which probably means that you just have a syntax error in your JavaScript, or else the manifest.json is missing a 'content_scripts' 'matches' key (ref:

Oh boy! So they kidnapped the warden's wife. does she get raped? If she gets raped, how many times does she get raped? She has to at least get stripped naked. Oh boy, stripped at least! If she doesn't get raped, who does? Someone has to get raped, this IS a Rob Zombie movie! Raped and then like, stabbed 50 times or maybe run over by a truck! Oh boy this is going to be awesome!

Opinion | Meet the Man Behind Trump’s Biden Tweet - The New York Times
“The 30 second spots on TV aren’t the way to market anymore. The stuff online that people dismiss as memes — that’s the way to motivate people,” he added. “It’s the viral political marketing of the future.”

In theory, his story is a perfect realization of the utopian understanding of the utopian promise of the internet: a truly democratic system of communication where anyone, anywhere can create things and get them seen by important people — even the president!

But in keeping with our current political moment, that utopian vision is used for vapid, divisive ends. The reality, as we should all know by now, is darker and a whole lot dumber.

Right-click opens up terrifying vistas of reality and Windows 95 user's frightful position therein • The Register
He was therefore in a confident mood when a user waved at him, needing help.

The gentleman in question, recalled Anthony, "seemed to be doing OK, but he said he had a question…"

"See that Recycle Bin there, on the screen?" the user asked.

"Does someone come round and empty that?"

Anthony stared at him for a few seconds before carefully demonstrating the arcane art of the right-click.

He then slowly backed away, doubtless making a mental note to have a quiet word with whoever had dispensed the training.

PuTTY semi-bug false-positive-malware
Our build setup does not involve Windows! As of 0.70, PuTTY's build process for Windows executables and installers goes from source code to digitally signed build produts entirely on Linux, without involving Windows or even WINE at any point. (We use clang-cl as a compiler, and run the WiX installer-constructor using Mono plus some home-grown glue code). So malware that runs on Windows would have a very difficult time attacking our build machine.
