Season 2, Episode 3 of New Girl is titled “Fluffer,” and without getting into the details, it reminds me that I ended two friendships for the same “fluffer” reason, I just didn’t know there was a name for it.

Better off being single ...

Here's a brief message for married people stuck in lousy marriages. One thing I learned about marriage is that it’s about teamwork, and if one partner isn’t part of that team — or doesn’t appreciate the other person — it’s no marriage at all, it’s just two people sharing bank accounts and living quarters. I strongly believe that a marriage partner should be someone who builds you up, not one who tears you down.

How to create an SBT project with subprojects

This is an excerpt from the Scala Cookbook (partially modified for the internet). This is a short recipe, Recipe 18.6, “How to create an SBT project with subprojects.”


You want to configure SBT to work with a main project that depends on other subprojects you’re developing.


Create your subproject as a regular SBT project, but without a project subdirectory. Then, in your main project, define a project/Build.scala file that defines the dependencies between the main project and subprojects.
