    I use British spelling, but it always comes up with a spelling error whenever I type colour. I think I should hanged the settings....

    Maybe unpopular opinion, but I think as programmers we should all use AE, because needing to check whether a given piece of code uses AE/BE is a huge headache. Furthermore AE is ubiquitously adopted - so let's keep it simple

    I normally use Canadian English, but always go with the American spellings for words that are commonly used in coding like "color".

    @joycestick instead of e.g. "isAvailable", you use "availableEh".
