comment Why is backslash called BACK slash when arguably it points forward?
< and > were presumably invented at the same time. It's more like how we'd call ? "question mark" and ¿ "upside-down question mark" because the latter are much more recent (for English speakers at least).

comment Where to undo “don't show this message again”?
I think he's suggesting replacing a modal message with a non-modal in a notification pane.

comment Where to undo “don't show this message again”?
Personally, I find this solution doesn't work at all. You're showing this information once at a time that I don't care about it (obviously I'm disabling the warning because I don't think I need it again). Months later, when I want to reverse that decision, there's very little chance I'll remember what that message said.

comment Visualising assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses - together
Yeah, I'm aware of the problem with 2D-ifying a 1D number. :/ Using bar charts sounds simple, but it's not really that obvious how you combine say assets (a fixed number) with revenues (a recurring number) in the same graph without causing confusion. That and the scales of the two can be very different.
