Software developer. I work primarily in C#, Silverlight, SQL, and ASP[.NET] at work and home, but am trying to find a new practical language to learn that isn't quite so C-based. Right now I'm refreshing my abilities in functional programming with some F#. Also somewhat experienced with C++, PHP, Java, LaTeX, HTML/CSS, WPF, and a touch of Scheme.

comment What use is a Business Logic Layer (BLL)?
@Job - Yeah, sort of, especially since it's a small app with little chance of code reuse (yet). But it's also partly trying to use the best practice possible.

comment Languages on a resume: Is it better to put “C/C++” or “C, C++”?
If I made a bulleted list of every language and technology I'd used, it'd take up the whole page and then some.

comment Representing timezone list
+1. I can barely remember the name of my timezone; all I know is that it's +5. Being able to quickly scan a list to find "+5" is much easier than pretty much any other method I can think of.

comment Is it bad to have an “Obsessive Refactoring Disorder”?
@Slawek - Yes, I know, it's terrible practice, but practically speaking if making a deadline is more important than having clean code you have to prioritize. File a report on it and make sure it gets fixed as soon as possible.

comment Is this code bad enough to warrant a rewrite?
As usual, Joel Spolsky has an excellent article on rewriting old software.
