Your project is amazing, and so is your attention to detail. Thank you for all your hard work.

I have no serious questions, so how about a less than serious one: When using your now famous block comments style of "3 characters less than the previous line", do you sit with thesaurus.com open trying to find words that fill the space correctly?

Hahaha... I am very fast at finding the right words I need. I know common hacks to shorten or lengthen a line by 1-2 characters. I know that changing "we will" to "we'll" will save 2 characters on the total line length for example. I can write a comment like that almost as fast as I can write a normal comment.
