For anyone who considers looking for my email address and emailing me about his programming problem like this guy:

I just came across your profile on Stackoverflow. I hope this isn't
too intrusive but I desperately need some help with Python.
I'm new to programming and I'm currently trying to tackle two very
basic questions which I'm seriously struggling with.

NO, I will NOT help you in private. The fact that my website is not a programming site or personal blog should be reason enough for you not to use its contact form (or an email listed there) to contact "me".

comment What is the difference in meaning between “software”, “program”, “application”, and “gadget”?
I don't think "App" and "Application" can be considered synonyms nowadays.

comment is this javascript property defaulting pattern a code smell?
Modern JavaScript engines disallow it (I think it's even part of strict mode, but too lazy to check). Besides what, if you are not writing a library that's going to be used in environments full of crappy code you can safely assumed that nobody was enough of an idiot to redefine undefined. Besides that, you can even ensure that undefined is properly undefined: (function(undefined) { ... })();

If it's an object property you also don't need typeof. The only case where it's necessary is when dealing with plain variables - if they are not defined (not even === undefined) accessing them without typeof would throw an exception
