My mum once told me; "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all."


Yeah, she probably didn't get far in life.

How old are you? 12?

She knows when to speak up, and when she does, she doesn't kick off at the wrong people.

Does Jon work on Sublime Text full time, or is it a weeknight/weekend/vacation project? Really interested in the answer.

He left his job as a software engineer at Google in 2007 to work on Sublime full time.

>>> left Google in 2007 to work on Sublime full time.

That only lasted a few months, for a long time in ST's history, Jon was burning the candle at both ends, running a full time job while pushing forward.

There were times when it seemed completely infeasible as a business, but he persevered.

Jon may not be all that responsive, but I think he's more attentive than most would probably think.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt

@DisposaBoy

Doesn't really bother me.

It's not like he's posting all the time on a heap of different threads (or is he ??? :)

@Arjan

Seriously, I've noticed it over the years.

Nope, DisposaBoy doesn't know the difference between a spammer and a disgruntled customer. I guess his nick is a big clue.
