Suddenly, we seem to be flavour of the month for venture capitalists to email me offering lots and lots of investment:

1) Is there a VC spam list somewhere?
2) Latest one opened with "I'm hoping to land more firmly on your radar". I can only conclude that he wants to have sex with me.
3) What the hell would I do with $1M, let alone 15.
4) Jump off a tall building and die multiple times on the way down, please.

We're making a Realitme:get call and getting an error back with reason "lockedDomainCreationFailure". Under what conditions is that error returned?

It's too general for SO, you can't ask that there.

If you'd like to see draw.io as a free plugin for +Atlassian  Confluence and JIRA, we'd love to release that, but we've been blocked on a single issue for 15 months now.

If that's something you like the sound of please vote on the issue and let other Atlassian users know.
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/atlassian-connect-dev/TFqf6kSKpjc. Some add-ons providing a custom macro editor need to retrieve internal data specific to the page. For this they need the "content.id" context variable. You can get the current page if you're in JS: it should be in the ...

To delete/clear the JIRA plugin cache if you get random plugin behaviour:

- Stop JIRA
- Delete these folders:
     JIRA_HOME/plugins/.bundled-plugins
     JIRA_HOME/plugins/.osgi-plugins
- Start JIRA

Make sure it's just those folders you delete, nothing else.

I'd add - don't bother trying to revert out a merge commit. Just branch again from the end of the favoured branch then merge back to the problem branch with -strategy ours. I know the theory of selecting the parent on a merge commit revert, but I couldn't get it to work in practice.
One of the most useful features of any version control system is the ability to "undo" your mistakes. In Git, "undo" can mean many slightly different things. When you make a new commit, Git stores a snapshot of your repository at that specific moment in time; later, you can use Git to go back to an earlier version of your project. In this post, I'm going to take a look at some common scenarios where you might want to "undo" a change you've made...

+Miguel Duarte I only see either "Cloud sync" or "Glacier backup" as available packages - no "cloud backup".
The it works with "cloud sync" has been known for a while (see my post above), but that's not a proper backup solution like "Glacier Backup" and "Backup and Replication".
If you have info about how to make GCS Nearline work with any of those two, I'd be very interested to hear it.
