comment How can I avoid the use of strings?
@AlexFoxGill: yeah, but in any sane GUI framwork, you should get the result of the user's choice as an object directly without having to parse a string.

comment Security issue about making my code public in GitHub
@Pacerier: I'll take you up on that wager anytime. Note that the statement is that open source increases security, not that it results in perfect security. You can cite examples for bugs in OSS until the cows come home and it proves absolutely nothing to the contrary. There actually is proper research: archive.wired.com/software/coolapps/news/2004/12/66022 - yes, it's over 10 years old, but until you can find something concrete with contrary findings, it stands.

comment Should I build a multi-threaded system that handles events from a game and sorts them, independently, into different threads based on priority?
@supercat: if there are sufficiently many interactions, you could end up with the "clique" being the whole world. Also, establishing globally that "everything has been resolved" could be quite nontrivial.

@supercat: I'm pretty sure that won't work. You can't easily "go back and redo" when you detect a collision because you already have proceeded with other calculations based on the new state.

comment Best strategy to find the root cause when exception is swallowed by 3rd party
@YazadKhambata: the s in strace does not stand for "stack". It will not give you any information about your exception directly, but it may reveal what it was trying to do that caused the exception, e.g. access a file that doesn't exist, or open a network connection that is blocked by a firewall.
