I've been in the computer industry since about 1979 (I had a summer programming job after graduating from high school), and I've done a little bit of everything. I've programmed in ancient languages (BASIC, PL/I, COBOL, Lisp) and more recent ones (Perl, PHP, Javascript), with a few random assemblers thrown into the mix. I've been a system programmer, system administrator, tech support engineer, and performance engineer.

I'm currently working as a programmer for Bridge Base Online, the leading online site for playing bridge. I've been learning modern web application development in the process.

P.S. My name is barmar, not barman.

comment stacknotify google chrome extension
I installed this tonight, because the OS X menubar app Stack Exchange Notifier stopped working today. It shows all my recent notifications up to the time I installed it, but no new notifications since then.

I'm seeing "JSON parse error" today. Is there an issue with this?

Can it do the opposite of what I asked earlier: when you go from the notifier to SO, can it mark that notification as read in your SE inbox?

Is there any way to tell it to remove a comment from the notification? If I've already seen enough of it in the StackExchange inbox pop-up, and decided not to bother going to the page, I don't need it in the menu as well.
