comment Is 4-5 years the “Midlife Crisis” for a programming career?
If you have to pretend to be a silly girl, you're working with the wrong people. You're better than them.

comment Finding the time to program in your spare time?
@Zack: Yeah, more or less. Projects that I do either (A) to explore new technologies and expand my skillset or (B) to enhance my productivity in a very specific way. Typically (A) is the priority and (B) is a happy coincidence when it happens.

+1: I've never found time for personal projects. I always have to create it.

comment You are or will be a laid off programmer - what do you do a year ago, right now, tomorrow, and next week?
I've got this one taken care of already, mostly because I've been planning to take a month to tour the country between this job and my next one since before I started this one. :)

comment “Mentor” a senior programmer or colleague without insulting
@ScottieT812: Yeah, that's how I do it. Phrased that way, there's an implicit assumption that your colleague is competent and chose to do it that way for a specific reason. I've never seen that approach result in a defensive response, even when their answer is, "Dunno, didn't think about it."
