comment When I test out the difference in time between shifting and multiplying in C, there is no difference. Why?
@MichaelT Yep. That's what I meant by "Note that a sufficiently determined optimizer could still optimize away the loop (it relies entirely on constants known at compile time)."

comment Should a developer be allowed to use VSS if he prefers it?
One developer using his own private VCS sounds dangerously close to one developer who's code is not properly being backed up. You're doing (off site!) backups of your Mercurial repository, I hope. That covers all but one of you. Are you doing the same for the VSS repository? If something goes wrong with those backups, would anyone notice? Etc.

comment how to evaluate own project
@gruszczy: Yeah, it can be moved. Close -> off topic -> belongs on programmers. If enough people do that, it'll be moved.

Does this belong on programmers.s.c instead?

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
And the even more fun thing of marketing not having any idea which features are easy and which are damned near impossible.
