'Liking' something on g+ can precipitate spam. Last time I ever do that!

I've been buying lunch near MIT frequently lately, and find myself just as often yearning for Andy's Chili http://www.andystevens.com/chili/

I'm looking for examples of good code: the kind we are all always urged to write, i.e. clean, readable, well documented, etc. I looked at a number of major open source software systems and the files I examined certainly don't qualify. My inquiry on twitter came up empty, so I now ask google+. Any nominations?

I've been informed of a flurry of new followers on Google+ and twitter. Looking at who these people are I can only guess that their interest in me is just part of the sudden new interest in the W3C TAG. Where were all these people over the past five years, when the TAG was virtually begging for constructive engagement with the larger community? Is the www-tag list so offputting, or incomplete?

The email list might be the best source, but it would help to broadcast elsewhere. E.g. Note when interesting discussions on X topic are in progress.

Question: Editing Lisp, I often do C-Y, C-M-B, C-M-Q, especially in keyboard macros when refactoring code. How do I do this when I'm editing Python code? There are no 'indent' commands in python-mode, and the 'shift' commands don't do the trick.

http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/PyIndent - For those who don’t like to manage Python indentation themselves, or who want to protect their Python code from such whitespace damage as might occur in email or Web posting, there is Lisp:py-indent.el which allows the use of C-like braces embedded in comments.

PyIndent can add annotations to correctly-indented Python code for protective redundancy or before adjusting control structures, and can later use them to reconstruct or modify the file’s indentation properly.

It can also remove them cleanly, so they can be used temporarily with shared code even under version control. The user is free to add and remove annotations (there are no invisible text properties or internal pointers that can be broken).

How is Skype able to attempt incoming connections to my computer, even across a NAT router? This had me really puzzled, but my first (duckduckgo) search result turned up a good article on the subject. Turns out it is a mistake to think that a NAT router acts effectively as a firewall. This was news to me.

What happened to the Sol Lewitt sculpture that used to be in the rooftop garden at 4 Cambridge Center? The one that had to make way for Google's continuing imperialism. And why does the Web know nothing about this?
