comment Where is the 'this' variable stored?
The variable that refers to the object is "this." In your example, vec holds the address of this. When you call resize, the value of vec is passed as the first parameter. The answer given here is both correct and relevant.

comment Benefits of a leaderless team in Scrum
"In tradition models...designated leader who is responsible for every aspect of decision making" - in my 25 years experience, I have never come across a work environment like this, even when my wife was my TL.

comment Telecommuting from Australia - tax arrangements
@Kaushik - No, this is Australian tax law. I have no idea about US laws. It is the government's way of working out if you are a real company or just a contractor acting as an employee. If almost all of your income derives from a single client, then you can be determined to be effectively an employee of that client so anything you earn needs to be paid out as salary. If you have multiple clients or multiple employees you can avoid this situation. Again, this is Australian law only.

comment I want to publish an android app, but I'm afraid of software patents
@psr - It depends upon where you live. in Australia, the director(s) of a company can only be sued if they have show gross negligence or malfeasance. Shareholders and employees cannot (of course) be sued.

comment What legal considerations do I need to have when programming?
I work in the gaming industry in Australia - the government regulations are significant. There are many rules dealing with AML (anti-money laundering), problem gamblers, gambler stops and rates of return. So much so that management/legal dept tend to handle this and pass down the compliance requirements.

comment Emailing Service: To or Bcc?
BTW, every time I've worked with automatic emails I wished it has enqueued them first. It makes testing a lot easier and less risky since you can just check the queue and not actually bother sending the emails. It also allows for retry in case of errors and keeps a log of everything sent for future reference. Just my 2 cents.
