I’ve seen both ISO to NSO conversions and just giving new employees NSOs immediately

at this point i don’t understand why any company would offer anything other than NSOs that expire after 10 years. seems like ISOs are just a tax optimization for rich people who can afford to exercise them at the expense of everyone else

css question: have you gotten stuck centering something recently? what was the problem in the end? so far I have: * you need to set a width to use margin: auto * a sibling element was throwing off the centering * what else?

yep braces are a different important thing! here's an example of why braces can be important var=panda echo $var2 # won't work, var2 isn't a variable echo ${var}2 # will print "panda2"

:) I might change the rates in the future as I get better data but decided to start by rounding the PPP prices down instead of up
