comment Fellow programmer used worst programming practices
"Security through obfuscation is never good security." er... that's precisely the point of obfuscation, and it works pretty darn well...

+1 indeed, I can't imagine how you'd have all those of Visual Studio's features in a terminal...

@Charles: Kind of yes, kind of no. Go on chat and take a look at my chat history with a couple of others if you're interested in where this is coming from.

Just make sure you don't give away what you're doing, or you might embarrass yourself instead.

Just curious, how else do you store "a bunch of T"? Is there a better way than a list?

comment Will a computer science college degree ever hurt my employability?
I like (dislike?) how people bash people with degrees. When's the last time you saw a good programmer with a CS degree? When's the last time you saw one without? How often does each happen? I think that explains stuff by itself.

comment Why were Java collections implemented with “optional methods” in the interface?
What I don't understand is, why they didn't make a can method that would test if an operation is possible? It would keep the interface simple and fast.

comment What are some fun (and very easy) C++ programs for a 10 year old kid to write?
@Davor: RGB should be pretty easy. No need to teach him about color management. Regarding loading the bitmap and memory management: That's not the kid's job, that's why I said @Casey should make a simple Bitmap class to handle that. The kid would only need to access the pixels and say something like bitmap.Draw(). @Ziv, @kizzx2: This really depends on the kid... I think if he likes it he'll have no problem getting RGB (although yeah, edge detection is obviously too hard), but if he doesn't then yeah, not a good idea for an assignment. Any specific parts you guys think is too complicated?
