comment Dealing with the customer / developer culture mismatch on an agile project
Wow, you have clients that would actually avoid technical debt? Most of the ones I've had would go '$100, yeah I'll take that one'.

comment How do I explain a “Hello World” program for beginners?
I remember being taught something similar when learning C.... (I'm probably going to get this wrong but) the whole void main(int argc, char **argv) thing... was taught at the time that it was magic and to just use it for now... several months later we learnt what it actually did.

comment Are there any frameworks available for drawing with CSS?
It seems like a large leap to go from hacky shapes with border tricks, to drawing, in plain CSS and JS. Canvas is just JS anyway...

comment Tags or specify revision?
@StephenC because a release of Application 1 might rely on specific tags of Projects A, B, C and D. That's what I'm assuming, anyway. I'd personally keep them all in separate repos and use svn:externals to lock them to particular revisions or tags, but hey.

comment Why does everybody write to-do comments in capital letters?
Except 'todo' might appear in something else like a variable name, or other comment text...
