    @aaronbartell how are you liking VSCode?
    Aaron Bartell
    @aaronbartell
    @jbh I like VSCode a lot. There are a few things I miss from SublimeText. For example, SublimeText would let me close the app with unsaved changes and then when I reopened it would have the editor in the same state. This is very useful for me because I usually have tabs open with things I've pasted and I don't really want to save it, I just want to keep it as a clip board. SSHFS + VSCode has been working great. I created a script that I run in the morning to connect to all of my drives and I am up and running in seconds. The one thing that doesn't work so well with SSHFS is anything in Git past git diff. For example, git commit seems to take forever. I am guessing that's because Git isn't expecting to be running across a network connection.
    At the end of the day I think VSCode and SublimeText are both quite good, I just see much more of a future with VSCode so I think that's reason enough for everyone to jump horse.

    I like VSCode also, but I run Windows and can't get SSHFS to work. When Netserver isn't working well, I downgrade to WinSCP and Notepad++ or sometimes Eclipse with Remote System Explorer.

    @IBMJesseG_twitter What problem did you run into getting SSHFS on Windows to work?
    Jesse Gorzinski, MBA
    @IBMJesseG_twitter
    "Drive
    could not connect: server string null or empty"

    @aaronbartell Finally got around to installing Windows 10 Git Bash and have been searching for instructions on how to connect to IBM i and so far have not found any. Do you have any recommendations?
    The latter is a bit more simplified and only about SSH on the IBM i.

    @aaronbartell
    @IBMJesseG_twitter Could you post a sanitized version of your SSHFS connection string?

    Here's what I have in my shell script file that I run in the morning:

    basedir="/Users/aaronbartell/"
    sshfsname="remote_home_git_app1"
    remotedir="/home/aaron/git/app1"
    mkdir $basedir$sshfsname
    umount -f $basedir$sshfsname
    sshfs -o volname=$sshfsname -o allow_other,defer_permissions,IdentityFile=~/.ssh/id_rsa aaron@[ibmi_ip_address]:$remotedir $basedir$sshfsname

    Replace [ibmi_ip_address] with your IBM i IP address, and then obviously replace the other values to match your paths.

    @jbh Open the git-bash terminal and type: ssh ibmiprofile@ibmi_ip_address

    Oh, also make sure SSH is running: STRTCPSVR *SSHD
    @IBMJesseG_twitter Bummer. I haven't used that so I am not of much help.

    @jbh
    @aaronbartell I believe you mean @GarrisonPD ;P And yes, good point, make sure SSHD is running.

    New Crowdcast - #IBMiOSS Panel Discussion on the OSSILE repo - this Friday, 9Dec2016 at 8am Pacific (4pm GMT)

    Here's a better description from one of our members, John Yeung

    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    @starbg We do actually have some open-source ILE C - can you let John know?
    Bill Gravelle
    @starbg
    Sure, but you can too - he's on Ryver as @jky ... is it already out there on the OSSILE repo?
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    It's not in the repo though.
    Bill Gravelle
    @starbg
    can we get a PR in before the event (showing the power of community efforts)?
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    I will see if I can contribute some C actually.
    Bill Gravelle
    @starbg
    OK - that would be great ... maybe I could contributing by updating the ReadMe.md?
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    Okay. When I have made the PR for it I will let you know
    :smile:
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    @starbg I'm about to make a PR for a SHA256 re implementation in ILE C.
    Serious question everyone... tabs or spaces?
    ThePrez
    @ThePrez
    That cannot be a serious question. Nobody likes tabs
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    Well there's only one correct answer ;~)
    ThePrez
    @ThePrez
    Liam, will your PR be a usable service program?
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    It will be a module
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    Spaces for da win
    Kevin Adler
    @kadler
    They didn't get a consensus on how many spaces, though.
    ThePrez
    @ThePrez
    4
    Kevin Adler
    @kadler
    Sounds good to me.
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    You're not a true RPG dev if you use more than 2 spaces
    :joy:
    4 is the bomb though
    Brian Garland
    @BrianGarland
    4 is so much easier to read than 2 or 3.
    Aaron Bartell
    @aaronbartell
    @WorksOfBarry Always spaces, never tabs (IMHO). I am a fan of 2 spaces, but I might be in the minority there.
    Liam Barry
    @worksofliam
    @aaronbartell I've always like 4 spaces, but since starting RPG and JS full time I have also been using 2 spaces
    Aaron Bartell
    @aaronbartell
    People that use 2 spaces have longer thumb life.
    p-behr
    @p-behr
    LOL. People who use 12 spaces have more modular code.
    Alan Seiden
    @alanseiden
    It is 2016 and we are still discussing spaces or tabs... our grandparents would be proud that we keep this tradition alive.
