llvm's regular bay-area monthly social, Nov 6th

Hello! No, you haven’t got your weeks mixed up, the llvm bay-area social is next week. The annual developer’s meeting is tomorrow. This email is a whole week early!

Whenever you get a chance, please RSVP at http://llvmbayarea.appspot.com/ and I’ll let Tied House know how many to expect.

Hope to see everyone at the dev meeting!! :slight_smile:

It's Monday, so I just wanted to remind everyone to RSVP if they're
planning to come this week!

Random request:

It’s really hard to visually scan the list and get an idea of who is coming and who isn’t, since the “not”/“may” is sort of hidden in the entry and at a variable offset from the left margin.

Could we color-code or place an eye-grabbing icon to indicate whether someone is attending or not (or “may”)? Or alternatively sort by the attendance status?

Idk what the code that runs that is and the relative difficulty of changing different things, but the simplest might be to just have “not” be in bold and red, and “may” be bold and purple (or whatever styles, as long as they visually stand out).

I once tried putting ✓ (unicode check mark) ✗ (unicode ballot x) and ◒ (unicode circle with lower half black) but found it too visually cluttered. Maybe because no and maybe are uncommon, I can put those in so they stand out and just not use any symbol for the "yes"es.

The sort order is currently oldest-last.

Custom one-off horror that I wrote in a few hours one evening. I paid for that when the spambots showed up though. Never mind spam postings, just loading the front page enough times exhausted the database quota. Oops. (To be fair the quota was small because it's supposed to be a small page running in free (as in money) quota, but still.)
