I try very very hard to write comments that I would want to read if I had to dive into someone else's code and understand what the hell it was doing and why.

@twylo I haven't commented code like that in a long time, and I need to get back into the habit.

We should start an organization, something like Fellowship of the Comment Block or whatever. You can only be a member if you can prove that you've written comments (or, alternatively, relevant off-line documentation that serves a similar purpose) above a certain minimum level.

It'd be like the Century Club in ham radio, but for code commenting. We can even have regular nets. 😉

@twylo it makes me unreasonably happy that your computer is still called motherbrain

@twylo
Nice! What's your commenting style like where comments intermingle with lines of code?
