Diagnosis? When it crashed it was out of FDs.
I usually just switch to using FEs and FFs when the FDs run out.
Nobody had heard of version control back then [80's]
I don't think that's correct. Wikipedia says that SCCS was first released in 1972.
I will agree that anyone nesting/chaining ternary operators more than twice is not a good idea.
I totally, completely, and utterly disagree with you there. I regularly chain 3 or more ternary operators, with great success. Readability of chained ternaries all about formatting/indenting in a reasonable way.

"Lush" is a well known brand. If people go to www.youtube.com/lush they would expect to see Lush cosmetics, not some random guy. Similar for www.youtube.com/mcdonalds.
Uh, who are these "people"? I've heard of McDonald's, but I've never heard of Lush cosmetics. If I went to www.youtube.com/lush, I don't know what I'd expect to see. Certainly not a cosmetics company. Porn maybe?

Which part of the brain holds your conscious self?
The part which does not understand the Force, of course.
"I suggest you try it again, Luke. Only this time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct."
The crux, as I see it, is that an add-on box is clunky compared to a TV. It's a thing that has to be installed.
On the other hand, if you already own a decent TV, then installing an add-on box like Apple TV is a much easier installation than a new television set.
Fixed-pitch fonts, I miss those. They made UI development so much easier because the sizing was far more predictable than variable pitched fonts.
Not if you have to support translation of your UI to other languages.
