I know bits of VB(A), C#, ASP, PHP, SQL, Javascript, (X)HTML, CSS, Perl, lua, arduino/processing. But none very well.

I suffer from imposter syndrome

comment Struggling not to use Hungarian notation
OK see where you're coming from there. +1 for the comparison of suffix/ class. Oh, and I am the OP!

I fail to see the advantage of UserEmailText to txtEmail - you're just suffixing the type rather than prefixing it. I like "This is what OOP is designed for", though.

@delnan - can you elaborate please? Why does function size make naming uniquely easier?

comment Do you prefix variable names with an abbreviation of the variable types? (Hungarian Notation)
Wow, awesome explanation of the misuse of the term and how in the wrong form it's completely redundant. Thanks.

comment Where do I publish a program?
+1 A Pandora specific forum would be the obvious place to start. Does pandora have user founded Groups like last.fm?

+1 for not assuming the software is open source, although I'm not sure a blog is the best solution here.

comment How do you take notes at a meeting?
+1 I take minutes directly to the laptop (without voice recorder though). I find my wpm fast enough to keep up, and it means when the meeting is done, the minutes are too, and I don't have to go and type/write them up. Instead I can get on with whatever's been actioned to me in the meeting! Also, it helps me focus on what's been saying. I HAVE to listen, because it's my duty to record it.
