Yes, I think that’s what we discussed. While I don’t love the “s_” prefix, I didn’t love the “m_” one either, and I got used to it.

We didn’t discuss global variables outside of a class. If we decided to start using a prefix, I’d suggest “g_” but I don’t think we need one. What do other people think?
