@alianzo I'm not in Greece. Your data is wrong. @moids Try (?<!^title:)"(?!$) (translation: any " that is not preceded by title: and not followed by end of line) Haven't tested it though! @moids Oh, last question! Which language? @moids Please confirm: 1. Every line starts with title:" 2. You want to retain the " at the end 3. You only want to match the " charactersBeware: all: initial also resets visibility to visible, which could make elements appear even if their ancestors have visibility: hidden! @moids So if the string is `title: "foo "bar" "baz"` you want to mach `"bar"` and `"baz"`? @nucliweb I can see both being useful, but mainly document. @nialbima That doesn't also retrieve the replacement & flags though. @LewisCowles1 @AtomEditor I imagine a "Save find macro" menu item / button that then asks for a name & (optionally) keystroke of your macro. @LewisCowles1 @AtomEditor Though something that adds a menu command would be useful too, for commands you don't use often. @LewisCowles1 @AtomEditor Probably the same syntax you use to specify key mappings in keymap.cson. @voylinux @AtomEditor I've never used vim for anything serious, but judging by the name, probably so. @LewisCowles1 @AtomEditor Yeah, but I have to type the find & replace strings and set the flags (case insensitive, selection etc) every timeIn @AtomEditor, Is there any way to store find & replace params as commands I can trigger with 1 click or keystroke? That would be so rad. @LeggoMuhGreggo Try posting here first Mention as many use cases as you can, this is super important.
Two nations. Election Update: Women Are Defeating Donald Trump
Retweeted by Lea Verou @smashingmag @moids @snookca Thanks Vitaly!Flexible browser frame (useful for presentations) with a tiny (4KB) image and 15 lines of CSS @jbrains @rachelandrew @kentcdodds @sarah_edo @toddmotto Maybe because these people's hourly rate is higher.Knowing how many people sheโ€™s inspired here, weโ€™re excited @LeaVerou will be joining us for
Retweeted by Lea VerouCSS Custom Properties are *very* powerful. See: @csswizardry โ€˜s post + @LeaVerou โ€˜s talk

Because it's not about the woman not wanting sex - it's about stepping on another man's property in the dude's head.
Retweeted by Lea VerouEvery woman I know has been pressured for sex by a man and expressed disinterest only to be finally listened to when they say "I'm taken"
Retweeted by Lea VerouI said it in a thread but it should be painfully obvious to anyone that the GOP is finally mad at Trump because of the married woman thing
Retweeted by Lea Verouone last take: trump's eyes look like two infected clams ok i'm done for real this time SORRY
Retweeted by Lea Verouthey're pissed because the thing that was threatened this time was something that they felt "belongs" to them in their backward worldview
Retweeted by Lea VerouBecause they don't care about women as humans, only women as property. As their role in *their* lives. Not as people with their own.
Retweeted by Lea Verouthe statements from the GOP say "wives and daughters" - they're even focusing solely on their relationships to men. Not just "women".
Retweeted by Lea VerouThe GOP suddenly cares because of something that threatens their idea of the institution of family. It threatens men's claim to "his" woman.
Retweeted by Lea VerouIt's never been about insulting women, that ship sailed forever ago. It's not about sexual assault, because dude has 3 cases against him.
Retweeted by Lea VerouLook at the GOP statements. The sexual assault is an afterthought - the wife thing is prioritized. Misogynists aren't suddenly not.
Retweeted by Lea Verou @baratunde @monteiro or the US will go down as the country that found it so hard to vote for a woman that they'd rather elect a clown. @rauchg @nzgb @getify @sarah_edo @kentcdodds Ah ok. He freaked me out a bit, I assumed there was some security leak or something. @jongold @sarah_edo @kentcdodds I find that after a few months you get sick of giving it anyway. @nzgb @sarah_edo @kentcdodds unless done REALLY well, I hate fluffy inspirational talks. Their content is usually common sense. I want CODE. @nzgb @sarah_edo @kentcdodds they won't remember all the syntax but it will give them pointers and show what is possible. @nzgb @rauchg @getify @sarah_edo @kentcdodds what? @kentcdodds @sarah_edo @g33konaut in my experience > 95% of the audience hasn't seen it. Usually it's a handful of people, if that.
It's strange when people say they're shocked "as a father of 3 daughters" as if that's the only way to understand that women are also humans
Retweeted by Lea Verou @pwnall I haven't but I know someone who paid 3K off pocket and then his company (who told him to make this expense!) got out of reimbursing @CParadaTech YES. THIS. And then I feel stupid and blame myself. @gumnos Cash back is such a tiny percentage that it's really not worth the hassle of reimbursements for me.
@pwnall Interest is just payment for assuming risk. E.g. what if the company disagrees with my purchase and doesn't pay? It happens a lot.Reimbursements are basically interest-free loans that companies expect us to give them. Um, no. @_david_omar It will be a while until that myth dissipates, it's so strongly ingrained. :(Academic conference insanity: Even speakers have to register & pay. And it may have sold out. What happens next is undefined. #uist2016 @_nicolemargaret I have many friends who have "lol". @mr_foto At least add low carb *as well*, since carbs are what actual science says is the problem. Not fat. @_nicolemargaret If you had said an album I might agree, but one song? No, you're doing tech talks wrong if it takes you less than ONE song. @mrdoob You shouldn't have to do that. Please open an issue on the Prism repo? will airline meals actually catch up with modern science and stop offering "low calorie" and "low fat" optionsโ€ฆ! @webkit nightly updated #variablefonts support & width/weight changes reflow MUCH more smoothly. for samples
Retweeted by Lea Verou @skamille that is not true in my experience. Most of the confs I speak at were fun AND got paid decently. You have to negotiate though. @Hashnoder ahem the comment about 2 latest versions was specifically about websites of dev libraries. Out of context it sounds wrong. @LeaVerou makes a talk about #CSS variables and now every codepen I see is using them. Including mine. Love it!
Retweeted by Lea Verou @anidexlu @nivesh002 @Hashnoder Does Microsoft actively forbid other browsers or is it just supply & demand? Apple *does not allow them*.Incredible answers on web standards, CSSWG, HCI research ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ฏ Thank you @LeaVerou ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ for this wonderful AMA โžก๏ธ
Retweeted by Lea Verou
@mateuszkocz @nivesh002 This opinion is not just based on stats, but on how each company treats their browser. Apple doesn't give a fuck.Nobody really tells you how to do an AMA. If you get multiple questions on the same thing, do you copy paste or link to your first answer?What is worse: Safari or IE?, loved it. - @LeaVerou AMA on @hashnoder
Retweeted by Lea VerouAMA with @LeaVerou is now live ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ‰ Ask your questions โžก๏ธ
Retweeted by Lea VerouAMA with @LeaVerou will be live in two hours. Ask your questions now โžก๏ธ
Retweeted by Lea Verou @addictedcoder No, but it shipped shortly after my tweet. I still have 10 days to return it though, so I'm giving it a chance. @theMateBoy It is a really cool futon. I'm in love with it. :P @cameronmalek If you don't care, stop reading my tweets. Shall I show you the door? @hpanago Better photos. Except the iPhone 7 Plus is not really that good. :( @codinghorror true, but my iPhone 6 Plus was fast too when I first got it. They get slower. It's Apple's gentle nudge to get a new phone ๐Ÿ˜œ @sudinasa why? @mattFrankJames I tweeted that it shipped shortly after my tweet. So now I'm trying it out. @codinghorror from iPhone 6 PlusI received my new iPhone 7 Plus today, and I'm more excited about my office futon that also arrived. What an underwhelming iPhone update.
It has arrived. @ CSAIL - MIT @codepo8 @PKodmad yeah, it must have been hard given that that talk is all I've ever done related to CSS.โŽ Client not paid? โœ… Add opacity to the body tag and increase it every day until their site completely fades away
Retweeted by Lea Verou @aprohl5 I know about this. I was asking about the iPhone. Thanks though! @svgeesus @aliciability yes!! We should meet in Boston asap!! @BakabakaDesign @ZachSaucier so long! ๐Ÿ‘‹ @cozywigwam actually, I think I'll spare you from the effort. Enjoy being blocked, tone policing asshole. @cozywigwam I don't recall committing to being professional on my personal twitter account. If you want professional, unfollow and GTFO.
